Customer Reviews

Very easy to put on and take off.
L. Chang
The traction coils are wearing well, even with quite a lot of bare-pavement driving.
Alan Herendich
Tensioners can break so buy extras.

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.

Size Name: SZ335 Verified Purchase
This is the first time I tried any tire chain. After reading my Subaru Forester 2008 (AWD) manual, I researched and found that SZ335 meets the specifications - both size wise and the SAE Class "S". Surprisingly, according to manual event though my Subaru is AWD, it requires chains only on front wheels.

The instructions are clear enough, although they should have made it extra clear 1. by giving hints on the picture as to which side of the tire is on which direction relative to you and 2. by providing extra pictures of some keywords they use - bushing, C hook etc. Not that these are hard to figure out but every bit helps when you are out there in cold, snow, sleet etc.

Handling the chains and putting them on the tire and using the rubber tightener were simple and easy. For the first time it took me ridiculously short time - less than 10 minutes for both chains together. Taking them apart was simple and took perhaps not even 1 minute each tire.

These chains came in a box rather than a bag. A bag would have been more flexible. Putting them back in the box was slightly challenging and perhaps the hardest part of the whole exercise!!

I'd recommend taping the instructions sheet on the inside of the box so it doesn't fly away while you are installing the chains.

I also commend SecureChain company for having video on their web-site.

I am yet to try the chains in a really icy, tricky situation but I feel very confident they will work very well.

Unlike some of the other reviews, this one is specific to this product and to the point. I've used these cables for over a year on my Saturn in Big Bear, CA. Installation is pretty easy with just a little practice. No readjusting after installation; a real plus. Be careful not to spin the tire on acceleration; the hook on the inside can release and the chain will pop off. The rubber tightener is cracked, but has not broken; makes me nervous. The traction coils are wearing well, even with quite a lot of bare-pavement driving. The side cables appear to be untwisting, making the whole unit prone to knotting itself up and more difficult to install, (after a lot of use.) These cables have destroyed my plastic hub caps. Despite some problems, these cables are superior to conventional chains and I would buy them again.

Size Name: SZ335 Verified Purchase
I ordered a set of these just before the snow got deep in our area and I have only used them once. A very interesting experience. I had given a lot of thought to which chains to buy before the purchase but I still learned a lot from just that one use.

First, you DO NOT want to pay extra to get the manually tightened Z-Chain. I had to put these on in the snow the first time I put them on and believe me, it was hard enough WITH the rubber tighteners. Cops, mail carriers, emergency vehicles and the like may prefer the Z-Chain for their long-term durability, but I'm willing to bet that they all have nice, dry, heated garages in which to install the chains. They may need to adjust the chains now an then in the field, but they aren't pulling them out of the trunk AFTER they get stuck. When that happens to you, you don't want to mess with having to re-tighten them once you get them on.

Second, you really SHOULD take the time to put even these supposedly easy to install chains on your vehicle at least once on a dry flat surface during the day. I had to use them for the first time at night with snow caking the tire wells. NOT FUN AT ALL. You just won't know where the tight spots are in your wheel well or how to identify the different connectors on the chain until you actually put them on. On my van you need to turn the wheel to get enough access and you can easily tangle the line on the suspension if you are not careful. It would have been nice to know that in advance.

At least the rubber tighteners worked well. Once you get them connected they are self-centering. I would recommend getting a spare set just in case.

The third revelation I had was that the plastic case the "Sur-Grip Z" chains come in is very disappointing.
