I got these from Rack N Road, have not used them yet, but have used similar type of chains on a wagon FWD. Fairly easy to get on and tighten. I am a little skeptical about the self-tightening variety, afraid to try those. They can tell you the correct size for your tire.

Worked pretty well, did not need them on the bare and wet highway, but in the parking lot really helped. Trying to post a picture but file size was too big...

Main roads were bare and wet. And once they plowed the back roads, they were fine, but I had to get the chains on to get through the deep stuff before the plow came through. I was able to get them on, drive a bit, then tighten them right up, no loose ends, and plenty of clearance.



One issue with removing the chains, although not a deal breaker, the little ratchet clip got iced up, I was able to totally loosen the chain and remove it, but the rubber elastic portion would not come out of the clip due to ice that built up in there. Even though I could not totally remove the tightening chain from that clip, I was still able to remove the chains from the tires. It was dark when I was taking them off, so I really could not tell what was going on, but a screw driver would have helped to break the ice to get that off a little easier.
