When you wake up to a layer of ice and snow on the roadways, you're faced with a dilemma: drive with ordinary tires and risk getting stuck, or fumble with difficult to install tire chains. If you opt for the chains, you're faced with freezing your fingers off while trying to wrap them around the tire and having to stop periodically to re-tension them. And you'll still be worrying about clearance on the inside of the wheel, and whether a loose chain flapping around will contact and damage your expensive alloy wheels.
You can say goodbye to those concerns and all the mounting difficulties and re-tensioning with Thule K-Summit Tire Chains. They're easy to install because access to the rear of the tire is unnecessary. Just wrap the K-Summit chain around as much of the tire as possible, and then secure it to one of the wheel lug nuts. Use the ratcheting mechanism to take up as much slack as possible out of the chain. As you drive, the patented self-centering and self-tensioning mechanism will locate the chain in the center of the tire tread.
Once installed, the K-Summit's special injection molded plastic plates with hard metal studs and special alloyed steel chain will bite into the slickest surface to give you all the traction you need. And you can motor along secure in the knowledge that the K-Summit's steel tensioning springs will ensure that your snow chains stay tight and won't contact and damage your expensive wheels. And because the K-Summit chain doesn't extend inward past the center of the tire tread, you won't have to be concerned about inside wheel and tire clearance. When the roads clear up, you can remove your chains, fold them up and store them in the included storage bag.
K-Summit Tire Chains are available to fit most popular tire sizes. They come with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. Thule even provides gloves and a mat to kneel on, so you can stay as neat as possible while installing and removing your tire chains. The limited 5-year warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.
