Tire Chains (Traction Devices)

Use of traction devices require sufficient tire-to-body clearance. Follow these recommendations to guard against damage.

• Install on Rear Tires Only
• Due to limited clearance, use SAE class “S” low profile cables or traction devices only. Security Chain Company (SCC) Super Z6 #SZ 441 cables or equivalent are recommended.

Using tires of different size and type (M+S, Snow) between front and rear axles can cause unpredictable handling. You could lose control and have a collision.

To avoid damage to your vehicle or tires, observe the following precautions:

• Because of restricted traction device clearance between tires and other suspension components, it is important that only traction devices in good condition are used. Broken devices can cause serious damage. Stop the vehicle immediately if noise occurs that could indicate device breakage. Remove the damaged parts of the device before further use.

• Install device as tightly as possible and then retighten after driving about 1⁄2 mile (0.8 km).

• Do not exceed 30 mph (48 km/h).

• Drive cautiously and avoid severe turns and large bumps, especially with a loaded vehicle.

• Do not drive for prolonged period on dry pavement.

• Observe the traction device manufacturer’s instructions on the method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for use. Always use the suggested operating speed of the device manufacturer’s if it is less than 30 mph (48 km/h).

• Do not use traction devices on a compact spare tire.
