How to correctly fit snow chains on your vehicle
- Correct fitting chains must always be carried during the official snow season in any alpine area; note that four-wheel drive vehicles are not exempt from this rule in the Victorian National Parks.
- Chains must be fitted at the designated chain fitting bays or when directed by resort staff
- Chains should be fitted in pairs as follows: Front wheel drive – fit on front wheels Rear wheel drive – fit on rear wheel drive Four-wheel drive – fit on front wheels
What is the correct axle position of snow chains on 4-wheel drive vehicles?
A four-wheel drive with all 4 wheels engaged should have the chains at least fitted to the front wheels to assist both with steering and traction. The only exception to the fitting of chains to the front wheels is when the vehicle manufacturer specifically states in the owner’s manual that snow chains can only be fitted to the rear wheels because of under body or suspension clearance requirements.
