Thule K-Summit snow chains (pair) no. K-Summit 22 with 17 and 19mm wheel nuts

RRP: £360.00
Code: RETUKS-K22-17/19

Thule K-Summits are easy to fit and to remove. They're often the only option shown, especially where there’s minimal distance between the wheel and the wheel arch, or where there are clearance issues inside the wheel which prevent the use of traditional snow chains.

If you have chosen this product "by tyre size only", and the K-Summit XL is also shown, please think about the weight of your vehicle. The K-Summit is suitable for standard cars up to the 1,500kg mark, the K-Summit XL for larger vehicles (MPVs, SUVs, small 4x4s) up to 2,000kg. If in doubt, go for the heavier duty option.

Thule's K-Summit is what we call a "Ladder track chain". It's fixed to a wheel bolt with a special adapter, winds on to the wheel when you start to move, places a ladder of chain around the face of the tyre, with no parts inside the wheel, and requires no additional tensioning. The external bracing mechanism, and the friction between the chain and the tyre, prevents it from coming off the wheel, especially during cornering.

The hardened steel traction plates incorporate specially shaped "ice breaker" ridges; the chain elements are made from case-hardened manganese nickel (MnNi) alloy steel to provide an optimum combination of strength and hardness.

Each K-Summit size comes as standard with 17mm, 19mm wheel bolt adapters.

Because each K-Summit size fits a number of tyre sizes, some adjustment to the circumference of the ladder track is usually required first time out - this is easy to do, especially as K-Summits have a really clever spring loaded tensioning system.

A few turns of an open ended 17mm spanner fits the adapter to the wheel bolt - a spanner with an insulated handle is supplied - and the rest is easy. There's a ratchet to take the strain and to make sure that the system is at an appropriate tension.

Removing the K-Summit is also quick, clean and easy - loosen off the ratchet and pull the chain off the tyre.

Other features:

  • K-Summits are supplied in a strong carrying bag, shaped so that it fits flush against the back of the rear seat, together with a pair of plastic gloves, a kneeling mat, and some emergency spare links (pliers are required).
  • We have a full spare parts programme
  • All Thule snow chains meet the requirements of Austria's Ö-Norm 5117 and Germany's TÜV.


We're also showing you a range of other winter motoring products which we're selling here at market leading prices, including a snow and ice windscreen protector, a telescopic snow shovel, and a snow brush - all of these items are almost essential kit for winter weather, especially we suggest the snow brush.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
