Trak Sport Snow Chains for Tesla Model S

LIMITED QUANTITIES AVAILABLE

Tesla Model S owners who live in areas with lots of snow often opt for snow chains in wintry conditions, rather than an expensive set of snow tires. Even if you live in a warmer climate throughout the year, but want the option to venture out into snowier territories, snow chains can be a great option. The Trak Sport snow chain system provides excellent traction and durability in snowy conditions, but even better - it’s easier to install than traditional snow chains because it mounts from the front of the tire—there's no need to wrap the chains around the inner portion of the tire. Trak Sport Snow Chains are designed to utilize the outer side of the drive wheels as the single fixing point rather than having complex attachments to the inner side. Trak Sport Snow chains are production monitored and safety tested by TÜV SÜD.

Note: Snow Chains should only be installed on the rear wheels of the Model S and only on 19" tires. Trak Sport Snow Chains include one pair of chains for the two rear wheels.

Features

The Trak Sport snow chain system provides excellent traction and durability in snowy conditions. Because of its innovative design, the Trak Sport snow chains can be installed easily from the front of the tire, without any need to jack up the car or reach around to the back (inside) of the tire.

PRACTICALITY AT ITS BEST.

The Trak Sport snow chains are fixed only to the outer side of the rear tires. This eliminates the need for complex operations required to attach the chain to the inner side of the wheel—a common issue for other snow chains on the market.

BEST GRIP.

Trak Sport is self-adjusting, thus ensuring a perfect grip between the chain and the tread of the tire which, ultimately, results in a safer and quieter drive.

EASY TO FIT.

The Trak Sport snow chain is designed with ease of fitting in mind as it simply requires one fixing point on the tire. Once the car starts to move, the chain wraps round the wheel without requiring any manual intervention.

FAQ

Are these snow chains similar to those available directly from Tesla Motors?

Yes, in fact, they’re identical. Same materials, same construction, same installation approach, same strength and durability. These snow chains are sometimes available from Tesla Motors (online and via Service Centers), but, due to the popularity of the product they're often sold out. EVANNEX® is an official reseller of the Trak Sport snow chains. Please note: Trak Sport snow chains are imported (and made) in Italy.

The Model S performs well in all weather conditions with dual motor "D" or rear wheel drive configurations -- purchasing Snow Chains is a choice that is left to you based on personal preference while driving in snow.

Do I have to jack the Model S up to install these chains?

Absolutely not! The snow chains install from the front of the wheels/tires with the Model S firmly on the ground. 

Do I have to reach around to the back of the wheel/tire to install these snow chains?

No. A unique fastening mechanism allows you to install the snow chains from the front of the wheel/tire. There is no need to reach around to the back of the wheel, making installation much simpler than with other conventional snow chains.
