Konig CB-12 100 Snow Chains

Where does the brand Konig snow chains come from?

The brand König was founded in 1966 in the small Italian city of Lecco, situated in the Italian alps, where snow chains are required when there is snow on the roads. With this history, König has been making innovative snow chains for years. In 2004, König was taken over by the Swedish company Thule.

What’s the difference between Thule and Konig snow chains?

Since then, their snow chains have been sold under the brand name of Thule. However, from 2017, all König snow chains will once again be sold under their separate brand name, König, while still guaranteeing the same top notch quality that Thule stands for. The same, great snow chains, but a different name.

Where is the chain on a Konig car?

Just put it on the wheel starting from the top. Then, simply push the pedal down with your foot and you can continue your trip. The chain is fixed on the external side of the wheel, on one of the wheel nuts. You work only on the external side of the wheel and there are no elements behind.


This is another simple but efficient design from Konig. It’s no coincidence by the way that this is the third appearance of Konig products on this list – they simply make some of the best tire chains on the market right now.

This is another simple but effective design in the same mold as the model we took a look at above. Again, no bells and whistles are present on this design, it is pretty much the most basic, traditional style of snow chain. However once again it is that simplicity that is one of the key selling points – the other of course is the high-quality build from Konig.

So again, nothing of earth-shattering innovation to report with this product. But also, once again, we have a very good value, very well made product that will simply do what it’s designed to do.

It’s worth pointing out too that with 12mm of clearance this product sits lower and closer to the tire than the previous Konig model, potentially making it a better option for vehicles with low clearance like SUV’s.
