Product Description

Size: SZ429

Product Description

Super Z6 was designed by SCC for cars, trucks, and SUV's with restricted clearance around the drive tires. Based on SCC's experience with other products in the "Z" family, Super Z6 has one very special quality: it will operate in less than half of the space required by most cable chains and tire chains. Super Z6 requires only 6mm (1/4") of sidewall clearance to operate. The diagonal pattern provides constant traction, aggressive starting, stopping, cornering and ensures compatibility on vehicles equipped with traction control and electronically monitored brake systems. Traction coils, made from alloy steel are more durable than conventional tire or cable chains. A split outside cable with two fastening positions allows for easy installation without moving the vehicle, and there's no need to stop and retighten. Most cars, trucks and SUV's manufactured since the late 80's will have special clearance requirements. Don't be fooled by the appearance of the tire positioning on your vehicle. Traction products not only have to fit the tire, but must also fit within the space provided around the tires. Most issues are hidden from view as they are behind the tire near braces, suspension parts, strut housings, splash guards and fuel and brake lines. More information should be located in the owner's manual under chains, traction devices, tires or similar heading. It is important to select a traction product that is compatible with the minimum class assigned to your vehicle. The class assigned to your vehicle is based on the original tire and wheel size shown in your owner's manual. Using a different size tire may affect the chain's ability to operate properly. Some owner's manuals state that certain tire sizes do not provide enough clearnace to accommmodate winter traction products. The fact is, many of these vehicles can use SCC's Super Z6. Trying to measure the nearest obstruction under your vehicle could prove tricky.

The SCC Super Z6 SZ429 winter traction product offers superior performance for pickups and SUVs with very limited operating clearance around the drive tires. Be ready for winter driving with an innovative solution that is a step beyond traditional tire chains.

New Design
Based on the "Z" family of products, the Super Z6 is designed for vehicles with restricted clearance around the drive tires. The Super Z6 requires only 6.33 millimeters (.25 inches) of sidewall clearance to operate, less than half the space required by most cable and tire chains.



The Super Z6 installs quickly and easily. View installation guide.


Be prepared for driving this winter with Super Z6 traction systems.
A diagonal crossmember pattern provides better outstanding traction and durability than conventional chain systems.

Easy to Install
A split outside cable with two fastening positions allows for easy installation without moving the vehicle, so there's no need to stop and retighten. The traction coils are manufactured from alloy steel to increase the lifespan of the product. The Super Z6 is also designed to prevent scratching of alloy or high performance tire rims.

Versatility
The Super Z6 is available to fit pickups and SUV tire sizes. It offers a unique combination of performance and convenience features for every user, including a "designed-in" rubber tightener, better all-around traction performance than conventional tire chains or cables, and greater durability.

Designed for High Performance
The Super Z6 has better compatibility with anti-lock brakes, traction control, all-wheel drive, and other electronically monitored control systems so as not to interfere with the normal handling characteristics of your vehicle. The unique design also offers a low potential for damage to vehicle body and mechanical components, even when abused.

The Super Z6 SZ429 is designed for tires sizes from approximately 6.5-16LT up to 265 millimeters. Check the manufacturer's website for the exact product to fit your tire size. Also check your owner's manual for clearance specifications before installing winter traction products.

What's in the Box
Chains, plastic gloves, one pair of rubber tensioners, durable, re-usable nylon bag, and clear, illustrated step-by-step installation and removal instructions.

Customer Reviews

VERY easy to install.
Outpost05
It fits my vehicle even though there is a very tight clearance between the tire and the vehicle components.
M. Kirkpatrick
Anyway didn't use them but practiced as suggested in my warm garage and they were super easy to put on.

There are a confusing array of tire chains/traction control devices on the market, and even this particular company makes so many different models that it's hard to tell which ones are the best. Here's what you need to know about chains and traction control devices, and why I like the ones made by SCC. I also include some installation hints at the bottom of this review.

There are two broad types of traction control devices: Tire chains and traction control cables. Tire chains are actual chain links. Traction control cables are long pieces of metal cables, covered in a plastic coating, and designed to form a Z-pattern over your tires. The plastic coating is then surrounded by hundreds of tiny, round, metal springs. Cables are generally regarded as better because they are easier to install, last longer, are less damaging to roads, and work better with vehicles equipped with ABS. Also, according to SCC, you can safely drive with cable devices up to 30 mph, even on roads with no snow, without damaging them.

You should normally install traction control cables on your drive wheels, i.e. the wheels that actually push or pull your car forward. If the snow is really bad, though, you may have to install cables on all four wheels. Read your vehicle's owner's manual for more details on where to install your cables.

In any case, it's a really, really good idea to have TWO sets of cables in your car at all times. That way, if something breaks (murphy's law), you won't be stuck.

Within the traction control cable category, there are two general types of cables: Self-tensioning cables tighten themselves using a tensioner (which looks, feels, and operates like a rubber band) that you install when you put the cables on.

My first time using these was great. Record snow storm in So Cal mountains required cables and i never lost traction and only took about 3 minutes each wheel to install. Once your experienced- allow 2 min/per wheel. The split design that allows you to install them without driving onto them is perfect. Removal only takes about 1-2 min/per wheel. I ended up having to drive on them for 3 miles on bare roads without any problems or signs of wear. I also was able to plow through 2 feet of packed snow in a Honda minivan. Update- for rims that bulge out in the middle, the tighteners may rub on it leaving a mark. It just depends on your wheel style.

First off, I don't know jack about tire chains. I live where there isn't any snow and would like to keep it that way. The only time I've driven in snow has been with a 4x4 truck over short distances.

That said, we've got a minivan now and are heading up to the mountains. In the great state of California, you are required to carry chains if you are going anywhere it might snow.

Our Toyota Sienna XLE has 17" wheels and 60 series tires (on a minivan? OK, now it's cool because it has 17" alloys... Oh please!) Anyway I was very concerned about the 60 series tires not having enough rubber for the chains to fit without scratching up the wheels. In addition there is only about a thumbs-width between the tire and the strut (using calipers, I determined that my thumb is 0.723" thick). These are brand new tires so this is probably worst-case. Also, this van has traction control, stability control and ABS which can all be confused by tire chains that slip and grab.

I test fit these and they exceeded my expectations. They are easy to install (I used the instructions, but I'm just that way). They don't come anywhere near scratching the wheels and they clear suspension with no problems. I don't look forward to installing them in the snow and cold, but if it comes to that I feel these will do a good job. The diagonal pattern should do a good job of maintaining relatively consistent traction so the electronics (ABS etc.) don't get confused. Construction looked robust and consistent. On top of all that, the bag was smaller than I expected and I was able to get everything back in after my test-fit.

Hopefully these and the spare tire will never be used, but they'll both be there if needed.

These are the ones you want to get for your personal safety and peace of mind. Easy to put on and off. You don't have to even move the car to put them on. I have a Toyota Prius and these are much better than what the dealer sold me, for not much more money. You get what you pay for. For me, the extra cost is worth it because these are heavy duty cables for low tire clearance cars and the ease of putting them on is important, especially if you are out in the snow, in a storm or such. You will not regret buying these cables. I returned the unused "dealer cables" back to the Toyota dealer and felt like saying to them "for shame"...(they were so chinsey)...but I was nice and didn't do that. I just told them the truth...that these cables were far superior. Thankx!

Finally forked over for these and wasn't disappointed on two trips up to Mount Hood this week. Handled beautifully in the snow. So happy we got these -- I think they may be the only chains recommended for Toyota Siennas, which have a very small amount of space between the tire and the wheel.

First-tire set-up took about 15 minutes, but each subsequent tire/installation was less than 1 minute. (Practice at home before you have to do it in the cold wet snow.)

Note: you'll be doing lots of tire-hugging to install these -- be sure to get a pair of thin, warm, waterproof gloves, which will help make installation in the cold just that much easier. Also can't hurt to have a mat to kneel on. And keep a flashlight handy for spotting the connecting-point in those otherwise dark, tight wheel wells.
