Topic: Drive Slowly with chains installed on your SUV
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp
Driving in the snow or on ice should always be done at slow speeds, especially when you have tire chains installed. Driving at speeds greater than 25 miles per hour will damage the tire chains. At higher speeds they will break and cause damage to your sport utility vehicle.

Remove your tire chains when the road surface is not icy or snowy. Tire chains will wear out very quickly on a road surface that is merely wet or on dry pavement.

Caution: Tire chains on most vehicles will help shorten the stopping distance should you have to hit the brakes. But keep in mind that your best technique for stopping safely in icy or snowy conditions is to drive slowly to begin with. Also keep in mind that chains on all four wheels will often help you stop even better than with chains intalled on only two.
