Snow Cables for a 2013 azera with 19" rims?

Has anyone found a good set of snow cables for a 2013 azera with tech package (i.e. 19" rims)? The dealer told me if I used chains it would void some part of the warranty... We don't get enough snow where I live to justify snow tires, but I may have to go over some mountain passes occasionally that can ice up in the winter... Thanks!

Go to Amazon.com and search for Snow Chain Cable... Now you can see what other customers think about the various cable snow tires are like.

Uh yeah, I've been to Amazon.com... I'm hoping someone in this forum has used a set of snow cables on their azera with 19" rims and can recommend a brand/style... Thanks!

I didn't want to make a new post so i'll ask here. I'm going to Tahoe this weekend and sedans are required tire chains. I have the "18 wheels with all season tires. Which would be best? Would i need chains for all four tires?

Fortunately I also have an all-wheel drive pickup truck and live where it rarely snows but when we do get a day or two of snow/ice, I put on a pair of Autosocks on the front wheels of my truck. It increases traction greatly for both acceleration and braking but I still keep the speeds relatively low (<45 MPH). I haven't found the need to put a pair on the rear wheels since power transfers to the front wheels if the rear slips. The negative to this product is they will wear out quickly on dry pavement so for the sections of road where others are driving in the dry tracks from previous vehicles, I'm aiming for the snow/ice covered middle & side of the lane. In the completely dry sections of road between snow/ice covered sections, I have to just accept that the Autosocks are going to take a punishment until I make it to the next section of snow/ice.

They're fairly easy to put on the tires of my truck but I can see where it might be difficult to install on my Azera with 19" wheels because of the tight clearance between the tire and wheel well. However, the Autosocks don't need a lot of clearance to operate and I would have no fear of destroying the paint or body panels if one comes off. If I were to buy a set for the Azera, I would get two pairs to cover all four tires due to the tighter front to rear weight distribution than that of my truck.

The other downside is they get filthy during use but they include a set of elbow length disposable gloves to keep your hands & jacket from getting dirty while installing/removing.

You can go to autosock dot us (or Google "Autosock") to find more information.
