Snow chains

Mercedes-Benz G-Class / Mercedes-Benz G-Class Owners Manual / Wheels and tires / Winter operation / Snow chains

Information about the use of snow chain compatible AMG winter tires is applicable for AMG tires. Use of snow chains is only permissible with these tires.

On some tire sizes there is not enough space for snow chains. To avoid damage to the vehicle or tires, observe the "Wheel and tire combinations" section under "Tires and wheels".

If snow chains are mounted on the front wheels, the snow chains could grind against the bodywork or components of the chassis. This could result in damage to the vehicle or the tires.

For safety reasons, Mercedes-Benz recommends that you only use snow chains that have been specially approved for your vehicle by Mercedes-Benz, or are of a corresponding standard of quality.

R Only use snow chains when driving on roads completely covered by snow. Remove the snow chains as soon as possible when you are no longer driving on snow-covered roads.

Х Local regulations may restrict the use of snow chains. Observe the relevant regulations when mounting snow chains.

Х Do not exceed the maximum permissible speed of 30 mph (50 km/h).

If you intend to mount snow chains, please bear the following points in mind: Х Snow chains cannot be mounted on all wheel/tire combinations .

Х Mount snow chains only in pairs and only on the rear wheels. Observe the manufacturer's mounting instructions.

You may wish to deactivate ESPЃ when pulling away with snow chains installed. This way you can allow the wheels to spin in a controlled manner, achieving an increased driving force (cutting action).
