Tire Chains

Tire chains may be installed on all models except the Sahara and Rubicon. Install chains on rear tires only.

Follow these recommendations to guard against damage and excessive tire and chain wear:

• Use chains on P225/75R16 rear tires only. P255/75R17, P255/70R18, and LT255/75R17 tires do not provide adequate clearance.

• Use SAE class “S” tire chains or traction devices only.

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

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

• Install chains on the rear wheels 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 tire chain manufacturer’s instructions on the method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for use. Always use the lower suggested operating speed of the chain manufacturer if different from the speed recommended by the manufacture.

NOTE: In order to avoid damage to tires, chains, and your vehicle do not drive for a prolonged period on dry pavement. Observe the tire chain manufacturer’s instructions on method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for usage.

Always use the lower suggested operating speed if both the chain manufacturer and vehicle manufacturer suggest a maximum speed. This notice applies to all chain traction devices, including link and cable (radial) chains.
