Our Radial Chain LT is today’s basic winter traction product for the light truck, van and recreational vehicle market. Radial Chain LT can be installed in minutes and removed easily. It utilizes a metal fastening system and offers the same features as Radial Chain for passenger vehicles. With a history of performance testing from Alaska to Switzerland Radial Chain LT is an excellent, yet affordable choice in winter traction. Chain tensioners SHOULD NOT be used.
I bought a set of these because they were recommended in the manual for my 2011 Honda CR-V (SE/4WD). The manual recommends placing traction devices (Cable chains) on the front wheels. These appear to fit the low fender clearance of the CR-V.I saw another review on here stating that theirs came all corroded looking, but that was not the case for me.Mine came quickly and they are bright, shiny metal. They seem to fit the tires well and weren't too hard to install. They feel sturdy and well made.I'll update my review if/when I actually get to use them on any upcoming snow trips.I did only buy one set....I might buy another to have as a backup.
I needed a set of tire chains to go skiing in the mountains and these were easy to installed and worked great getting me up the the 7,000 foot ski lodge.
These fit great on a 2011 Honda Pilot, although I had to use the very last fitting to make it work.
Does the job very well.
I live in costal North Carolina and we occasionally get these crazy snow/ice storms that come through and shut the town down. Thanks to these chains (which roll up small enough that I have them in a tool bag that I just throw under the back seat of my 2WD truck and keep them there all season for emergencies) I can still be out and about without sliding all over the place.
I purchased these chains for my 2002 Ranger that I had a Snoway plow installed on it just to plow my 200 ft driveway. Before the chains I was getting stuck in the snow and ice just plowing my driveway especially this winter (2014-2015) in New England. After installed the chains I did not get stuck. I only gave 4 stars because I think the installation was not as easy as the manufacturers claim. The plastic holders that came with the chains were difficult to push the wires into and in some cases I could not get them into it. My recommendation would be that they include plastic cable tie wraps that can tie the ends of the cables together and skip the plastic holders. It is so much easier to install. The chains did not tear up my driveway.
Fits snug on my '15 Honda CR-V touring. Have to crouch under the wheel well a bit to make connection but once it is done, only one other connection on the rim side. works good
