Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Snow Chains

Snow Chins, Assembly and Replacing

Snow chains may be mounted only on the drive wheels.
If the vehicle has AWD, then snow chains may be used on the front wheels only.
Snow chains are not possible with all wheel/tire combinations. Corresponding notes can be found in the vehicle parts certificate table.
If no special snow chain type is specified, a snow chain with small chain links can be used. Only chains which do not stand up more than 15 mm, including chain lock, may be applied on tire tread and inner sides.
With some models and certain wheel/tire combinations, only snow chains with small chain links can be used. Corresponding notes can be found in the vehicle parts certificate table.
The Legally Permitted Maximum Speed When Driving With Snow Chains is 50 km/h (31.06 mph).
Remove the snow chains before driving on snow-free roads. It does not make sense to leave them on because the handling characteristics become worse. During this, the tires are stressed unnecessarily and the chain wear is particularly high.
