Traction devices approved by the vehicle manufacturer may be used to improve traction in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow.

If it becomes necessary to fit traction devices, the following points must be observed:

  • Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices should be used on the vehicle. Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices have been tested to make sure that devices do not cause damage to the vehicle. Contact a retailer/authorised repairer for information.

  • The wheels and tyres fitted to the vehicle must conform to the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer's original equipment. This helps to enhance the performance of the traction devices. See INDICACIONES DE LOS NEUMÁTICOS.

  • Do not fit a traction device to a temporary-use spare wheel.

  • Always read, understand, and follow the traction device manufacturer's instructions. Pay particular attention to the maximum speed and fitting instructions.

  • Fit traction devices in pairs, on the same axle.

  • Avoid tyre and/or vehicle damage by removing the traction devices as soon as the conditions allow.

  • Full chain traction devices can be fitted only to 225/55 R17 tyres.
