Super Z6 was designed by SCC for cars, trucks, and SUV’s with restricted clearance around the drive tires. Based on SCC’s experience with other products in the “Z” family, Super Z6 has one very special quality: it will operate in less than half of the space required by most cable chains and tire chains. Super Z6 requires only 6mm (1/4″) of sidewall clearance to operate. The diagonal pattern provides constant traction, aggressive starting, stopping, cornering and ensures compatibility on vehicles equipped with traction control and electronically monitored brake systems. Traction coils, made from alloy steel are more durable than conventional tire or cable chains. A split outside cable with two fastening positions allows for easy installation without moving the vehicle, and there’s no need to stop and retighten. Most cars, trucks and SUV’s manufactured since the late 80’s will have special clearance requirements. Don’t be fooled by the appearance of the tire positioning on your vehicle. Traction products not only have to fit the tire, but must also fit within the space provided around the tires. Most issues are hidden from view as they are behind the tire near braces, suspension parts, strut housings, splash guards and fuel and brake lines. More information should be located in the owner’s manual under chains, traction devices, tires or similar heading. It is important to select a traction product that is compatible with the minimum class assigned to your vehicle. The class assigned to your vehicle is based on the original tire and wheel size shown in your owner’s manual. Using a different size tire may affect the chain’s ability to operate properly. Some owner’s manuals state that certain tire sizes do not provide enough clearnace to accommmodate winter traction products. The fact is, many of these vehicles can use SCC’s Super Z6. Trying to measure the nearest obstruction under your vehicle could prove tricky.The SCC Super Z8 SZ462 winter traction product offers superior performance for large pickup and SUV tire sizes, as well as small to medium-sized commercial trucks under 20,000 pounds (gross vehicle weight) with very limited operating clearance around the drive tires. Be ready for winter driving with an innovative solution that is a step beyond traditional tire chains.

New Design
Based on the “Z” family of products, the Super Z8 is designed for vehicles with restricted clearance around the drive tires. The Super Z8 requires only 8.2 millimeters (.32 inches) of sidewall clearance to operate, less than half the space required by most cable and tire chains.

The Super Z8 installs quickly and easily. View installation guide.

Be prepared for driving this winter with Super Z8 traction systems. A diagonal crossmember pattern provides better outstanding traction and durability than conventional chain systems.

Easy to Install
A split outside cable with two fastening positions allows for easy installation without moving the vehicle, so there’s no need to stop and retighten. The traction coils are manufactured from alloy steel to increase the lifespan of the product. The Super Z8 is also designed to prevent scratching of alloy or high performance tire rims.

Versatility
The Super Z8 is available to fit large pickup, SUV, and small to medium-sized commercial truck tire sizes. It offers a unique combination of performance and convenience features for every user, including a “designed-in” rubber tightener, better all-around traction performance than conventional tire chains or cables, and greater durability.

Designed for High Performance
The Super Z8 has better compatibility with anti-lock brakes, traction control, all-wheel drive, and other electronically monitored control systems so as not to interfere with the normal handling characteristics of your vehicle. The unique design also offers a low potential for damage to vehicle body and mechanical components, even when abused.

The Super Z8 SZ462 is designed for tires sizes from approximately 33×9.50-15LT up to 295 millimeters. Check the manufacturer’s website for the exact product to fit your tire size. Also check your owner’s manual for clearance specifications before installing winter traction products.

What’s in the Box
Chains, plastic gloves, one pair of rubber tensioners, durable, re-usable nylon bag, and clear, illustrated step-by-step installation and removal instructions.

Couple of nice things about this I bought one set, then went back and purchased a second. Couple of nice things about this. I am frequently in places where a lifted 4×4 on large tread is insufficient. Two chains will pretty much get you out of anything. Four however will prevent you from getting stuck in the first place.

A+++ Traction, Easy to Install too SZ492 is the size you need for a 37×12.5 Tire (like a humvee take-off) they fit beautifully. I previously had them on 35’s and although they fit, they were very loose and I ended up using two cable ties per tire to try and take up the slack. I think their sizing information is a little off. Regardless, I am very happy with them on a 37″ tall tire. Easy to install, just wrap them around, two “clip ins” per tire, and string up the rubber tensioner. Maximum of 5 minutes for both…

Clearance requirement is not accurate but the product quality is good. The bracket that the cables fit into are thicker than 8.2mm – I measured with a digital caliper at about 10.2mm. This would require about 12.5mm clearance instead of the 8.2mm the description claims. The issue is that each product p/n fits a range of tire sizes and therefor the bracket will lay on the side wall of the tire at a different point depending on the tire size its mounted on. The bracket on the SZ486 mounted on my 315/75/16 BFG A/T tires lays right on the widest part of the sidewall…
