Honda Fit: Winter Tires

If driving on snowy or frozen roads, mount all season marked “M+S” tires, snow tires, or tire chains; reduce speed; and maintain sufficient distance between vehicles when driving.

Be particularly careful when operating the steering wheel or brakes to prevent skidding.

Use tire chains, snow tires, or all season tires when necessary or according to the law.

When mounting, refer to the following points.

For winter tires:

• Select the size and load ranges that are the same as the original tires.

• Mount the tires to all four wheels.

For tire chains:

• Install them on the front tires only.

• Because your vehicle has limited tire clearance, we strongly recommend using the chains listed below:

Models with 175/65R15 tires

Cable-type: SCC Radial Chain SC1026

Models with 185/55R16 tir

Cable-type: SCC Radial Chain SC1030

• Follow the chain manufacturer’s instruction when installing. Mount them as tightly as you can.

• Check that the chains do not touch the brake lines or suspension.

• Drive slowly.

WARNING
Using the wrong chains, or not properly installing chains, can damage the brake lines and cause a crash in which you can be seriously injured or killed.

Follow all instructions in this owner’s manual regarding the selection and use of tire chains.

NOTICE

Traction devices that are the wrong size or improperly installed can damage your vehicle’s brake lines, suspension, body, and wheels. Stop driving if they are hitting any part of the vehicle.

When tire chains are mounted, follow the chain manufacturer’s instructions regarding vehicle operational limits.

If your vehicle is equipped with summer tires, be aware that these tires are not designed for winter driving conditions. For more information, contact a dealer.
