Tire chains for trucks and SUVs must be strong enough and rugged enough to handle great weight and a lot of power, mile after mile, and you might think you'd have to pay a premium price to get such strength and durability. But Thule XB-16 Tire Chains are made of the same hardened manganese nickel alloy steel and feature the same high-traction dual-sided D-shaped link design as Thule's finest chains, at a great price.
Besides offering superior traction, the XB-16 is also easy to install and tension. When the snow starts to fall, just wrap these chains around the drive wheels and connect them according to the color coded attachment points. Perform a preliminary tension adjustment, then drive 100 meters and tension them again.
XB-16 Tire Chains are available to fit most popular tire sizes. When the weather clears, they can be removed and stored in the included storage case. These tire chains 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.
