12mm chain bites deeply into snow and ice.
Superior Engineering and Design
Thule snow chains are hand-made in Italy and are constructed of durable, hardened manganese nickel alloy steel. They feature dual-sided D-shaped links that provide exceptional traction and extend the life of the product. These snow chains utilize a patented self-centering and auto-tensioning system which adjusts itself for a perfect fit. Once the chains are wrapped around the tire, the installation process is completed when the vehicle is set in motion. As the wheels turn, the self-centering and auto-tensioning system activates and the chain tightens around the tire. This eliminates the need to exit your vehicle and brave the elements to re-adjust snow chains. For easier installation in the dark or during the day, all attachment points on the chains are color coded. Additionally, each set of Thule tire chains comes with a hard case, installation mat, pair of gloves, and spare links.
Quick-adjust tension control hook for fast installation.
Thule CB-12 - The Reliable, Practical, Easy-to-Fit Choice
Thule's CB-12 snow chain is the functional, heavy-duty solution for passenger vehicles. It utilizes ultra-durable 12mm D-link chain to provide superior grip on roads covered in snow and ice. The color-coded assembly points and quick-adjust tension control band allow for hassle-free fitting. Removal is just as fast. Simply lifting the tension control hook out of the chain link frees the chain from your wheel, allowing you to remove it quickly and easily. Additionally, CB-12 chains are also compatible with all Anti-Lock Brake and Traction Control systems. Perfect for fleet vehicles or the family car, Thule CB-12 snow chains are the premier economic choice in high-performance snow and ice traction.

How to Choose a Snow Chain that Fits Perfectly
To choose the right snow chain you must follow a few simple criteria. First, check your vehicle’s maintenance or owner’s manual to verify it contains no warnings advising against the fitting of snow chains on your particular vehicle. Once verified, take careful note of the three measurements on the side of the tire. The first number indicates the width, the second gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width) and the third denotes the diameter of the wheel expressed in inches. Then click on the Thule Snow Chain Fitment Guide to choose the most suitable model and size for your vehicle.

These chains were also the easiest to install, thanks to the stiffened inner ring that you just push behind the wheel -- you don't need to hug the wet, muddy tire to reach around to look for the other end of the chain because all the linkages are designed to connect on the outer side of the wheel, and you can install the chains without moving the vehicle. The uninstallation instructions say you need to stop and align the wheel perfectly, but this doesn't always work because I'd usually have a portion of the chain pinched under the wheel. I found it easier to just unbuckle the linkages and drive over the chains to get them off -- very quick. Key linkages are painted in bright colors, so they're easy to find. There is also a tensioning mechanism to keep the chains from flopping around too much. The unconventional locking/tightening mechanism is easy enough, but I'd definitely recommend that you try it at home before you head for the hills.
I purchased size 102 according to the fitment guide (225/60-16) -- while the chains fit around the tread nicely, I had hard time pulling on the tension arm of the chain to hook it to the designated spot on the chain (you'll have to see the instructions to see what I mean). I just ended up hooking the tension arm elsewhere on the chain, and compensated with a bungee cord.
In my opinion, these drive slightly more smoothly than the Z-cable chains.
I'm very happy with these chains. They store nicely in a compact case also. Good stuff.
When we left, people were still working on theirs.
These chains never got unfastened. They worked great, they are durable and I would only buy these in the future if I had to. I recommend them. They are user friendly and beginner friendly too.
Quality: Great! Despite running these chains pretty hard during the trip, I see no rust or major wear on them. I also got up to about 40MPH at times with them on with no indication that they were near the limit. The noise level was also fairly low as the chain links are fairly compact so the noise it kept to a very low rumble.
Installation: Great! Once you get the hang of these, it takes less than 5 minutes to put them on and most of that time is spent adjusting the tension. That would probably be the only complaint about these chains is that although the instructions (a picture book that doesn't help much) indicate that you do not have to roll your car forward to tighten them, I don't see any other way (more on this later) to do it.
Traction: Great! I was travelling with a family that had 4WD and they had some traction problems in the mountains while making a u-turn. My car had no issues whatsoever making the turn. These chains bite well and gave me a lot of confidence while they were on. I've used cable chains before and would have to say that those are a complete waste of money compared to these. Get some "real" chains and you won't be sorry.
Installation tips: Pull the chain out of the box and unhook everything.Read more ›
The chains are durable and easy to install and remove. However, I recommend that you install the chains and remove a few times before they are actually required. The instructions are clear but the installation is not very intuitive. After a few times they go on and off in only a few minutes.
Our wheel wells are tight. Getting the chains on and off in dry conditions was no problem. Carry a few rags with you to clean up afterwords, I had road grime up to elbows. Just an observation and recommendation.
The chains connect with a cable behind the tire. On the outside of the tire, the chains are secured and self tighten with a one hook connection, and a chain with a bungee cord that loops through a carabiner style snap, and then the bungee to the opposite side of the tire, to form tight a triangle.. Our frustration was that the carabiner snap was pre-installed in the wrong position. While I did practice installing and removing the chains I didn't drive around with them on. With the carabiner in the wrong position the chains could not get tight enough to prevent vibration.
The vibration was so loud that I could not drive faster than 17 mph without a lound banging. We stopped several times, re-read the instructions and tried to tighten but no luck. It wasn't until day two when re-reading the instruction illustration that we discovered that the carabiner snap was installed in the wrong position...
Since it is pre-installed pliers are needed to remove and relocate to the correct position. After this we had no problems. but the banging was so intense that it damaged our rims...Read more ›
