Dodge Nitro: Tire chains
Use вЂњClass SвЂќ chains or other traction aids that meet SAE Type вЂњSвЂќ specifications.
NOTE: Chains must be the proper size for the vehicle as recommended by the chain manufacturer.
To avoid damage to your vehicle, tires or chains,
observe the following precautions:
вЂў Because of limited chain clearance between tires and other suspension components, it is important that only chains in good condition are used. Broken chains can cause serious vehicle damage. Stop the vehicle immediately if noise occurs that could suggest chain breakage. Remove the damaged parts of the chain before further use.
вЂў Install chains as tightly as possible and then retighten after driving about 1/2 mile (0.8 km).
вЂў Do not exceed 45 mph (72 km/h).
вЂў Drive cautiously and avoid severe turns and large bumps, especially with a loaded vehicle.
вЂў Do not drive for a prolonged period on dry pavement.
вЂў Observe the tire chain manufacturerвЂ™s instructions on method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for usage. Always use the lower suggested operating speed of the chain manufacturer if different than the speed recommended by the manufacturer.
These cautions apply to all chain traction devices, including link and cable (radial) chains. Tire chain use is permitted only on the rear tires.
NOTE: The use of class вЂњSвЂќ chains is permitted with P235/65R17 and P225/75R16 tires.
CAUTION: Do not use tire chains on vehicles equipped with tires other than P235/65R17 and P225/75R16 tires. There may not be adequate clearance for the chains and you are risking structural or body damage to your vehicle.
