Should 1 Set or 2 Sets of Tire Chains be Used on a 4 Wheel Drive Vehicle


Do you recommend running tire chains front and rear on a 4 wheel drive, or just rear?


Expert Reply:

For the best performance and traction in snowy and icy conditions, I recommend installing tire chains on the front and rear tires. I also recommend checking your owners manual for any restrictions or limitations that the vehicle manufacturer may have on the use of tire chains.

If you choose to use 1 set of chains, you can install them on the front or the rear. They are typically used on the rear wheels, but you can also use them on the front tires for better steering and braking performance.

I have attached two help articles on tire chains for you to check out. If you would like to send me your tire size, I would be happy to provide some specific recommendations or good, better, best options.
