Review of the Thule K Summit snow chains which, unlike most snow chains, are an absolute cinch to install, and best of all you don’t have to go scrabbling around the back of snow encrusted wheels.

Overall Score
Simple to use, superb quality and performance
Pricey – but you’ll be glad you packed them when the snow falls

It fits on one of your wheel bolts with an innovative ratchet system which ensures a tight fit. You don’t even need to fit the chains around the bottom of the tyre, they’ll self-centre as you drive away.

The K Summit has alternating injection-moulded plastic plates with hard metal studs and a special alloyed steel chain along with welded bars to give excellent grip. None of the chain comes in contact with your alloys, and the fitting process takes just a few minutes using colour-coded parts for easy mounting.

The whole shebang has foldable arms for easy storage and comes with a storage bag. Sure, there are plenty of much cheaper snow chains out there, but the combination of ease-of-use, high quality design and great performance means the K Summit should be a serious consideration if you’re driving in the mountains this winter.
