Only use traction devices in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow.


Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) must be switched off when using traction devices.


Never exceed 50 km/h (30 mph) when traction devices are fitted.


Never fit traction devices to a temporary-use spare wheel.

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 they do not cause damage to the vehicle. Contact a Dealer/Authorised Repairer for information.

  • The wheels and tyres fitted to this vehicle, must conform to the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer's original equipment. This will help 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.

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

Full chain traction devices, should only be fitted to each rear wheel with these tyre sizes:

  • 205/55R17.

  • 225/50R17.

  • 225/45R18.


Do not fit traction devices to any other tyre size, as this will cause considerable damage to the vehicle.


When using snow chains, select Winter driving mode and switch DSC off. See INVIERNO and DESACTIVACIÓN DEL SISTEMA DSC.
