For the price that these were going for, I should really give it 4 stars, but its about the product and not the price. These chains will work well enough for a decent amount of snow and has never steered me wrong. They take some effort putting them on and taking them off. They are safe on your tires and I've never had a problem with them rubbing and they are still lasting after two trips to the snow (yeah, it hasn't been that many times) But for 24$ a set, using them twice already paid for itself.
I do want to make a suggestion though. Put them on at home. Figure out how many links it takes to secure the inner part of the chains to have it seat properly. Once you know this, when you install them in the snow, just hook up the inner side of the chains the same amount of links. Drive forward a little and link the outside. If you've done it properly, your chains should be tight enough without having to constantly check if they need to be tightened.
I used these tire chains just once to get up a paved, hilly road with a sheet of ice on it. I was driving about 5-10 MPH and made it up the hill just fine. However, I was pretty surprised to see that one of the cross cables had snapped with just this one incredibly brief use. The broken chain is now useless. (I had to park at the bottom of the hill and walk up for the next few days until the ice melted). I would not trust these tire chains and would strongly discourage anyone from buying them. The tire chains do come with a one year warranty, but I bought them years ago and only needed them this one time. For an item such as tire chains, a one year warranty doesn't seem to make much sense. I wish that I could have rated these tire chains with zero stars.
