General rules for the use of tire chains are as follows:
• Consult your owner's manual to see if tire chains can be used on your vehicle.
• Make sure chains are properly sized for your tire. Proper fit is very important.
• Install as tightly as possible by hand for maximum chain life and performance.
• Pull completely off the road and out of the way of traffic before installing, servicing, or removing tire chains.
• Do not deflate tires to install tire chains. (Tires should be normal inflation.)
• Drive approximately 1/4 mile. Stop and retighten chains. Extra links (depending on chain style) may be cut off or zip tied. Keep chains tight to snug throughout the operation.
• Do not exceed 30 miles per hour. Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Avoid spinning or locking of wheels.
• If chains should fail, stop immediately and repair or remove. Do not drive with a broken tire chain.
• Avoid hitting curbs with tire chains.
• Tire chains are not designed for towing.
