Kia Optima: Tire Chains - Special Driving Conditions - Driving Tips - Kia Optima MS/Magentis 2000-2005 Owners ManualKia Optima: Tire Chains

Mount snow chains on your vehicle when warranted by driving conditions or required by local laws. Make sure the chains are the correct size for your tires. Install them only on the front tires. If metal chains are used, they must be SAE class S. Cable-type traction devices can also be used.

Chain Installation

When installing chains, follow the manufacturers instructions and mount them as tightly as you can. Drive slowly with chains installed. If you hear the chains contacting the body or chassis, stop and tighten them. If they still make contact, slow down until it stops. Remove the chains as soon as you begin driving on cleared roads.
