Installation tips

  • To fit the chains during a journey, stop the vehicle on a flat surface on the side of the road.
  • Apply the parking brake and position any wheel chocks under the wheels to prevent movement of the vehicle.
  • Fit the chains following the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
  • Move off gently and drive for a few moments, without exceeding 31 mph (50 km/h).
  • Stop the vehicle and check that the snow chains are correctly tightened.
