Learn2 Install and Remove Snow Chains (continued)
Step 6: Start out slow...

     
  • Get back in the car and warm yourself up. You did it! Assuming you followed all the directions above (in order) you now have snow chains on your car and are ready to go. Start out slowly to give the chains a moment to adjust themselves evenly on your tires.

  • Listen carefully as you go. If you hear any banging or repetitive knocking, stop the car. Get out and investigate any loose ends which could be banging the underbody of the car. Check the clips and make sure the chainsare still attached at both inside and outside strands.

  • When everything checks out, proceed cautiously. If you've bothered to install chains in the first place, you're admitting that the driving conditions are hazardous. Never exceed 40 miles per hour when driving with snow chains. Give yourself at least twice the distance as usual between your car and the car in front of you. Anticipate your stops, corners, and turns--avoid making sudden movements.
