Caution: If your vehicle has P195/65R15, P205/55R16, P205/50R17, or 225/40R18 size tires, do not use tire chains. They can damage your vehicle because there is not enough clearance.
Tire chains used on a vehicle without the proper amount of clearance can cause damage to the brakes, suspension, or other vehicle parts. The area damaged by the tire chains could cause you to lose control of your vehicle and you or others may be injured in a crash.
Use another type of traction device only if its manufacturer recommends it for use on your vehicle and tire size combination, and road conditions. Follow that manufacturer's instructions. To help avoid damage to your vehicle, drive slowly, readjust, or remove the device if it is contacting your vehicle, and do not spin your vehicle's wheels.
If you do find traction devices that will fit, install them on the front tires.
Notice: If your vehicle has a tire size other than P195/65R15, P205/55R16, P205/50R17 or 225/40R18 size tires, use tire chains only where legal and only when you must. Use only SAE Class S-type chains that are the proper size for your tires. Install them on the front tires and tighten them as tightly as possible with the ends securely fastened. Drive slowly and follow the chain manufacturer's instructions. If you can hear the chains contacting your vehicle, stop and retighten them. If the contact continues, slow down until it stops. Driving too fast or spinning the wheels with chains on will damage your vehicle.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly
