USING SNOW CHAINS

WARNING

Use traction devices only in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow.

WARNING

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) must be switched off when using traction devices.

WARNING

Never exceed 30 mph (50 km/h) when traction devices are fitted.

WARNING

Never fit traction devices to a temporary-use spare wheel.

NOTES

When using snow chains, select grass/gravel/snow driving mode and switch DSC off. See GRASS/GRAVEL/SNOW and SWITCHING DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) OFF.

Traction devices approved by the vehicle manufacturer may be used to improve traction on compacted snow, in heavy snow conditions. Traction devices should not be used in off-road conditions.

Traction devices should not be used in off-road conditions where there is no compacted snow.

If it becomes necessary to fit traction devices, the following points must be observed:

  • Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices should be used on the vehicle. Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices have been tested to make sure they do not cause damage to the vehicle. Contact a retailer/authorized repairer for information.

  • The wheels and tires fitted must conform to the specifications of the vehicle's original equipment. This helps to enhance the performance of the traction devices. See TIRE MARKINGS.

  • Only half chain traction devices can be fitted to the vehicles fitted with 17, 18, 19 in diameter wheels. Full chain traction devices can be fitted only to the vehicles with 225/65 R17 tires and wheels.

  • Single-sided spike-spyder traction devices or snow chains can be fitted to only the front wheels of vehicles fitted with 17 inch diameter wheels.

  • Fit traction devices in pairs on the same axle.

  • Always read, understand, and follow the traction device manufacturer's instructions. Pay particular attention to the maximum speed and fitting instructions.

  • Avoid tire and/or vehicle damage, by removing the traction devices as soon as the conditions allow.

Contact a retailer/authorized repairer for details and availability of approved snow chains.
