Volvo XC90: Wheels and tires / Snow chains

Using snow chains and/or snow tires can help improve traction in winter driving conditions.

Volvo does not recommend use of snow chains on wheel dimensions larger than 19 inches

WARNING

Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent snow chains that are suitable for the vehicle model and the tire and wheel sizes. Only one-sided snow chains are permitted.

If uncertain about snow chains, Volvo recommends contacting an authorized Volvo workshop. Use of the wrong snow chains could cause serious damage to the vehicle and result in an accident.

CAUTION

Snow chains can be used on the vehicle, with the following restrictions:

  • Always follow the manufacturer's installation instructions carefully. Install chains as tightly as possible and retighten periodically.
  • Only put snow chains on the front wheels (also applies to all-wheel drive vehicles).
  • If accessory, aftermarket or "custom" tires and wheels with different dimensions than the original tires and wheels are used, snow chains in some cases may NOT be used. Sufficient distance between the chains and brakes, suspension and body components must be maintained.

Check local regulations regarding the use of snow chains before installing.

Never exceed the snow chain manufacturer's specified maximum speed limit. Under no circumstances should you exceed 50 km/h (30 mph).

Avoid bumps, holes or sharp turns when driving with snow chains.

Avoid driving on surfaces without snow as this wears out both the snow chains and the tires.

The handling of the vehicle can be adversely affected when driving with chains. Avoid fast or sharp turns as well as locked wheel braking.

Some types of strap-on chains affect brake components and therefore must NOT be used.

Consult a Volvo retailer for more information about snow chains.
