The design to secure the chains to the tire leaves much room for improvement. Now begins the wait to see how the chains perform in the snow / ice environment.

Just a heads up, you need to install the tires on the outside axle holes to provide enough clearance for the chain. This isn't stated on the directions for the chains nor is it mentioned in the Ariens manual. The outside holes are normally only used to unlock the tire.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ricky Snowblower Tire chains for 12" wheels.
They were difficult to connect the ends together since It was too tight when wrapped around the tire. It appeared to be missing a couple of chain links on each side of the tire when I compared the pictures in the instructions to the set I received. This set was recommended for this model snowblower.

The chains are the right size and installed easily.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KenC No good for me - Ariens Compact 24
New Ariens Compact 24 came with 4.10/3.5-6 (=12.00 x 3.5-6) tires. Owners manual mistakenly says they should be 13 x 5-6. The Peerless Chain box for these chains is labelled for the tires I have.
I could not find a combination of inner and outer link positions that did not leave me with worrying banging noises as the cross links hit protruding bolt heads and the like.
Without bungie tigthteners, the chains came off in the first 100 feet. With bungie tighteners, they came off at around 500 ft.
It seems to me that Peerless Chain labeled these Chinese chains for what they think they should work for but never actually tested them.

The chains were so difficult to put on I had to bring them and the snow blower to my car mechanic to put them on and even he had a difficult time putting them on. Also, they do not grip and the wheels continue to spin in the snow. In all fairness this may be due to the depth of the snow that accumulated while waiting for the chains to be delivered. I won't know this for sure until the snow melts down to a more manageable level. If this condition persists, I would not recommend them as they do not improve the traction of the wheels

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowman Great machine
I am getting up there in age and just couldn't see myself shoveling for long so I purchased this machine. I bought if at the end of the snow season but did get to use it on 2 heavy snowfalls. Was I ever surprised! It worked flawlessly in every way. Wish I had purchased it years ago.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thunderdan Very useful for steep slopes
These chains fit perfectly, though they took a little time to install. Once attached, my snowblower turned into a little tank and could not be stopped. Just what I was looking for.
