    Comments about Thule CB-12:

    They work great, but there are conflicting diagrams/statements to be aware of:

    1) Their sales description (on the world's largest on-line retailer site) says "As the wheels turn, the self-centering and auto-tensioning system activates and the chain tightens around the tire. This eliminates the need to exit your vehicle and brave the elements to re-adjust snow chains." However, the Thule description on their own site says you need to stop and retension. I don't know which is true.

    2) The final installation diagram shows a symmetrical triangle is created by the tensioner (which would provide even tensioning). However, in reality, the tensioning system is short and the 3-points being pulled by this system are all on the same side of the wheel. It seems to work fine for me - but if the fit were not perfect, then I guess you'd pull the chain off center.

    Do not let these comments stop you from buying, just be aware...
