Snow chains

Use of snow chains should be in compliance with local regulations.

Snow chains should only be applied to the driving wheels (front wheels). We recommend using Lineaccessori Fiat snow chains.

Check the tension of the chains after driving some ten metres.

IMPORTANT Snow chains cannot be fitted to the space-saver spare wheel. So, if a front (drive) wheel is punctured and chains are needed, a rear wheel should be fitted to the front of the vehicle and the spare wheel should be fitted to the rear. This way with two normal drive wheels, snow chains can be fitted to them to solve an emergency.

IMPORTANT Use only reduced clearance snow chains with maximum projection off wheel equal to 12 mm.

Keep your speed down when snow chains are fitted. Do not exceed 50 km/h. Avoid potholes, steps and pavements and avoid also to drive for long distances on roads not covered with snow to prevent damaging the car and the roadbed.
