Tire Chains

Check local regulations before using tire chains.


  • 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.
