Cobra passenger cable chains are made with tough, low-profile carbon steel rollers to provide traction and long wear. The low-profile of the steel rollers allows increased tire-to-road contact resulting in better stability as well as considerable noise and vibration reduction. These Cobra cable chains are designed for use on cars having minimal clearance availability and original equipment tires with high tread. They are totally galvanized for rust protection and come packed in a plastic box for easy storage. Fits Tire Sizes: 255/45-19, 245/65-15, 265/75-15, 225/70-16, 285/40-17, 235/65-17, 245/65-17, 285/30-18, 275/35-18, 285/35-18, 275/40-18, 275/45-18, 235/50-18, 235/55-18, 255/55-18, 225/60-18, 235/60-18, 225/65-18, 235/710-460, 275/35-19, 285/35-19, 275/40-19, 235/55-19, 265/35-20, 275/35-20, 245/40-20, 225/70-17, 295/50-15, 275/60-15, 235/50-19, 265/35-19, 275/30-20, 255/70-15, 245/45-19, 235/30-22, 245/30-22, 255/30-22, 225/50-19
Vehicle Cable/Chain size and tire size
I like this 1042 particular cable because it fit my 2018 Chevy Malibu Hybrid and it has 13 cross straps instead of 11 or 12 that others have which will lead to better traction, they were easy to install and take off just turn the wheel and it gives ample room to hook the inside and outside wires together . I put some pictures up one has the tire size chart that shows what size tire this cable fits I highlighted my particular tire size. I also purchased a yellow spider bungee sold separately .
worked well on minivan
We used these chains this winter for our Honda Odyssey minivan and they worked well. I recommend trying them on your vehicle in dry conditions before you have to use in snow. Obviously it’s a little harder putting them on in snowy conditions but still worked okay. We could only drive about 15-20 mph when the chains were on. But we were getting up hills that SUVs and pickups had slid off sideways.
Good chains for occasional/emergency use
These are good quality chains well suited to emergency use. I would not pick these if your need is for chains that will stay on for long periods of time – they are really too light for that sort of use. However, if, like me, you simply need a set that lives in the back of the car/truck and go on for occasional use, then these are great. The lighter weight makes them both easy to stash and easy to install and yet the quality is good so they are not going to fall apart first time you stress them. I used them recently to help pull another car up a snow-packed and icy hill they were unable to climb on their own. Without the chains – no go. With the chains – no problem. They held up well to that load.Note: the price is per pair so two sets cover all four wheels. Not sure why some reviewers missed that fact.Also: buy a set of chain tensioners to go with them because these do not come with any. No chains are going to stay put unless you use some type of tensioning system. I bought the rubber bungee type tensioners made by the same manufacturer: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005OIUQDY Just be sure to match proper size and these also work well and also stash easily.
