Snow chains can be used on your Volvo with the following restrictions:

Х Snow chains should be installed on front wheels only. Use only Volvo approved snow chains.
Х If accessory, aftermarket or "custom" tires and wheels are installed and are of a size different than the original tires and wheels, chains in some cases CANNOT be used.

Sufficient clearances between chains and brakes, suspension and body components must be maintained.
Х Some strap-on type chains will interfere with brake components and therefore CANNOT be used.
Х All Wheel Drive models: Snow chains should only be installed on the front wheels.
Х Certain size tires may not allow the assembly of snow chains/traction devices.

Consult your Volvo retailer for additional snow chain information.
