Land Rover Discovery Owners & Service Manuals

Land Rover Discovery: Using snow chains

  • Only use traction devices in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow.
  • Never exceed 50 km/h (30 mph) when traction devices are fitted.
  • Never fit traction devices to a temporary use spare wheel.

Land Rover approved traction devices may be used to improve traction on compacted snow in heavy snow conditions. They should not be used in off-road conditions.

If it becomes necessary to fit traction devices, the following points must be observed:

  • Only Land Rover approved traction devices should be used on the vehicle.

    Only Land Rover approved traction devices have been tested to make sure they do not cause damage to the vehicle. Contact a Retailer/Authorised Repairer for information.

  • The wheels and tyres fitted must conform to the specifications of the vehicle's original equipment.
  • For the 17, 18, 19 and 20 inch diameter wheels, only half chains can be fitted.
  • Fit traction devices in pairs on the front axle only.
  • Always read, understand and follow the traction device manufacturer's instructions. Pay particular attention to the maximum speed and fitting instructions.
  • Avoid tyre/vehicle damage, by removing the traction devices as soon as the conditions allow.
