Dodge Charger 2011-2024 Owner's Manual / SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / TIRES / Snow Traction Devices

Snow traction device must be of proper size for the tire, as recommended by the snow traction device manufacturer.

No other tire sizes are recommended for use with the snow traction device.

Please follow the table below for the recom- mended tire size, axle and snow traction device:

WARNING!

Using tires of different size and type (M+S, Snow) between front and rear axles can cause unpredictable handling. You could lose control and have a collision.

CAUTION!

To avoid damage to your vehicle or tires, observe the following precautions:

  • Because of restricted traction device clearance between tires and other suspension compo- nents, it is important that only traction devices in good condition are used. Broken devices can cause serious damage. Stop the vehicle imme- diately if noise occurs that could indicate device breakage. Remove the damaged parts of the device before further use.
  • Install device as tightly as possible and then retighten after driving about ½ mile (0.8 km). Autosock traction devices do not require retightening.
  • Do not exceed 30 mph (48 km/h).
  • Drive cautiously and avoid severe turns and large bumps, especially with a loaded vehicle.
  • Do not drive for a prolonged period on dry pavement.
  • Observe the traction device manufacturer’s instructions on the method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for use. Always use the suggested operating speed of the device manufacturer’s if it is less than 30 mph (48 km/h).
  • Do not use traction devices on a compact spare tire.
