Highly recommended product! Bring on the snow!! By:
Great product!! Highly recommended.
Great item for a great price By:
We used this on our Jeep Liberty while going up to Yosemite national park(in December) - did great on! No issues beside the obvious loudness of it while driving but kept us safe for a reasonable price!

used on a Nissan Murano. worked fine but you can still get stuck if snow is very deep.
WORKED GREAT By:
Bought these for our RDX and they did the job - we crossed the Sierra Nevada mountains twice without having to use them. GREAT INSURANCE buy!

they fit and work on my truck just fine, however if you have newer or new tires you may have to order a size larger as they are very snug with little extra making the tension bands nearly unneeded.

VERY HANDY TO HAVE AROUND IN THE WINTER!
Fits By:
AWESOME
Easy to use! By:
Chains worked great! PRACTICE first before heading out in the snow. It takes less than 5 mins to set up, if you have practiced before hand.
If you need snow chains, consider these. By:
Awesome set of snow chains! No problems fitting on a 2011 Chevy Traverse with 255/65r18. I had to chain up going over the Tahoe/Donner Pass during a snow storm. These chains worked great, no issues.
Five Stars By:
Fortunately I didn't have to use them, but they test fit my 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe perfectly.
They were really easy to put on and gave me a lot of ... By:
They were really easy to put on and gave me a lot of traction on the snow and ice. Once I had hit the road and went 40+ mph, I pulled over and had to tighten the chains quite a bit. They were pretty loud, but I assume all chains are going to be loud so I don't really consider it a negative of this specific product.
Lighter weight than full chains and they have their own bag. By:
Didn't get to use them this winter but I was ready for the ice we get in Dallas area and the I-20 road to Alpine and Terlingua. Lighter weight than full chains and they have their own bag. They didn't take up that much space in my jeep wrangler JKU.

This thing is really great!

  • Shur Grip Z class S cable chains
  • Fast and easy installation with included rubber tighteners
  • Better all-around traction performance than conventional cable or link chain
  • For use on most passenger vehicles
  • Offers a smooth ride

Definitely a good buy! By:
Worked like promised, I got them the day before a snow storm so I did not get to practice putting them on. 1st side about 20 minutes and 2nd about 6 minutes. I drove about 30 miles between snow and pavement when I took them off they still looked like new. I put them back in the box the same way they were in originally and they fit with a little stuffing.
Great emergency traction solution By:
I use these SuperZ cable chains on my front wheel drive minivan to get me out of a jam when my 4 studded snow tires can't make the grade. The last 1/2 mile of my drive home is up a dirt road with several sections as steep as 14% grade. With this steepness and a couple of inches of very wet soft snow I sit helpless as my car turns into a sled and slides back down the hill. These chains are awesome! I put them on and I drive right up my steep road like there was no snow on it. The chains are very easy to put on and take off (watch the video on Amazon's website), the plastic box they come in makes it easy to store in the trunk (keep a pair of work gloves nearby). I would not use these for long distances or high speeds, but they are a great emergency traction solution. I would buy a pair of these for every car I get.
Great on ice and packed snow so far By:
Used these both days this weekend downhill on icy 4x4 roads in my rav4 where there were multiple others in ditches. Tried to help everyone out since I was easily zipping around with these on. Even the trucks with all terrains were surprised haha. They were super easy to put on (once you get it down, it literally takes maybe 1 minute per chain to get on). They saved my butt on this one particularly icy section that no one could get by without flying into the ditch. One fell off as I was trying to tow one vehicle out of the ditch uphill, but that was an extreme situation with a ton of extra weight pulling on my vehicle. The only gripe is that it seems the rubber connector could be slightly tighter, but they stayed on great up to 25mph so far under normal conditions. Haven't tried em at higher speeds yet. Thoroughly happy with em.
looks like they will work well By:
Fit well, looks like they will work well. Hope I don't ever have to use them
Five Stars By:
Love these style chains over the others, easier to install and have very good grip on the ice.
Traction for snow that is fresh By:
Great for snow but nothing works for icy roads except common sense.
Five Stars By:
as advertised

These chains last!!! By:
Easy to put on and take off while on the road in snowy conditions.This set fits my new (to me) ‘15 Honda CR-V and they worked great - I’ve had this same brand of cords for my ‘03 Tahoe and they have lasted many years using them once or twice a year at Mammoth - I’ve bought 2 sets in 15 years and my second set are still in good shape. Just dry them thoroughly with an old towel after each use before storing them to prevent them from getting rusty. I keep mine in a heavy duty canvas bag along with a pair of old ski gloves (since it’s always snowing when you put them on).You won’t need to move your car at all or lay on the ground once you learn the “TRICK” of swinging the V shaped sheet of cords underneath the car around the tire so they are easily fastened from the front on the top inside wheel well, then top outside then bottom outside (pay attention to the direction of the metal clips keeping the correct side against the tire). Hook the yellow clips on the bungee sincher to the cables always starting at the top then diagonally across to the bottom (gives you downward leverage - much easier than lifting up) then the 3rd clip at 10:30, 4th at 4:30, 5th at 1:30, 6th at 7:30 as you face the front of the tire.I can do it by myself without laying on the ground and getting all dirty, as fast as the guys on the side of the road who charge $30 and I’m a girl! I’ve taught my teenage daughters to do it as well!

Easy to put on / take off By:
About as easy to put on and take off as you could hope for.
Super easy to install By:
I really like these. They’re extremely easy to install and come in a nice case. I haven’t used them in snow yet, but I’d imagine they’d be as functional as any tire chains are. Ease of use it’s a huge plus for me.
Easy on and off for snow chains By:
These had the highest rating for snow chains. They worked excellent and aren't bad to put on and take off.
Life savers. Literally. By:
I bought these because I am on a fixed income and could not afford to buy a new set of Winter tires. I truely believe this product saved our lives last night. I was coming thru a particularly sketchy mountain pass from Denver back to Gunnison Colorado last night and I was loosing control while going 20. The roads were straight ice...and we were on a mountain side. As soon as I had room to safely pull over I got these things out and put them on In the dead of night...alone...strong winds and heavy snow fall....just using the moonlight..while my kids were in the van. It took about 10-15 mins to out on both, because I hadn’t opened them yet. I suggest you do a dry run before you actually need them. They were easy enough to install..no tools...just something to reach them from under the vechicle when you are wrapping them around. I used a long ice scraper. As soon as we started creeping back onto the road we all could feel a HUGE difference. Even my kids said they instantly felt much better...you could feel the traction and it certainly provided more peace a mind. I white knuckled it until we got home...took 3 hrs to drive what normally should have taken 1 but we got home safe and I am thankful. I am positive we would not have if we hadn’t had these.I will be buying these for everyone I love who lives in a snowy place. Very much worth the money!!
Easy to put on By:
Easy to put on End it did a good job
So easy a city slicker can do it By:
215/70-R16 fits just fine. Two attempts with the printed instructions only and I had it. Very happy with the fit, will see how it performs tomorrow
Better than regular chains. By:
I bought these for a car that used to use chains. The chains are great in snow and thick ice but if your in a situation where it's melting (but not all the way gone) or on roads that are being plowed, the cables are vastly preferable. The chains experienced broken links after little use on blacktop, but these cables have been going strong through everything I've put them through.Let's face it, it's often the rural roads where chains are needed while the main roads in town are fine. No one takes off their chains halfway to work, so when you have no choice but to drive on blacktop, these cables are the way to go.
quick shipping. By:
Need chains as winter is approaching and access on the mountain will be 4 wheel drive or chains. Still have to carry chains with 4wd so these work great. Tire size is on the larger size so harder to find the right size.
I love these things for deep snow. By:
No more needs to be said.
Installation is EASY - Kiss your drive-on cables/chains good by. By:
As you should with any chains/cables - test fit them before you have to put them on in the snow. Not doing this is a BAD MOVE. I am extremely pleased with the ease of installation with these cables. The days of driving onto chains/cables to install are over. These go on quick and easy and no no need to move the car around :). I havent had to use them yet and may never have to, but I always carry them, even in my 4x4 when we head up the hill.Oh - and the 'Practical Bag' comment in the video - so true. My chains for my little car are the biggest pain to try and put back in the plastic case they came in.
