8.3.9. Antisliding chains


Chains have to be established only on forward wheels as well the full-drive a car leg.

Chains of antisliding can be installed only on tires by dimension 195/65 R 15. Installation of chains of antisliding on an emergency wheel for technical reasons is not allowed.

It is necessary to use only close-meshed chains acting no more than on 15 mm (including castle links).

At installation of chains of antisliding it is necessary to take off full-size caps of wheels and decorative rings of disks. For safety reasons wheel bolts have to be protected by special caps.

Before the movement on the site of a way, free from snow, it is necessary to remove antisliding chains. They worsen road performance of the car, increase wear of tires and quickly collapse.
