Check local regulations before using tire chains.

CAUTION

  • Chains may affect handling.
  • Do not go faster than 50 km/h (30 mph) or the chain manufacturer's recommended limit, whichever is lower.
  • Drive carefully and avoid bumps, holes, and sharp turns.
  • Avoid locked-wheel braking.
  • Do not use chains on a temporary spare tire; it may result in damage to the vehicle and to the tire.
  • Do not use chains on roads that are free of snow or ice. The tires and chains could be damaged.
  • Chains may scratch or chip aluminum wheels.
