Hyundai i-30: Winter driving / Tyre chains

Hyundai i30 (PD) 2018-2021 Owner's Manual / Driving your vehicle / Winter driving / Tyre chains

Hyundai i30. Tyre chains

Since the sidewalls of radial tyres are thinner than other types of tyres, they may be damaged by mounting some types of tyre chains on them. Therefore, the use of snow tyres is recommended instead of tyre chains.

Do not mount tyre chains on vehicles equipped with aluminium wheels; if unavoidable use a wire or fabric type snow chain. If tyre chains must be used, use genuine HYUNDAI parts and install the tyre chain after reviewing the instructions provided with the tyre chains. Damage to your vehicle caused by improper tyre chain use is not covered by your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty.

WARNING

The use of tyre chains may adversely affect vehicle handling:

  • Drive less than 20 mph (30 km/h) or the chain manufacturer’s recommended speed limit, whichever is lower.
  • Drive carefully and avoid bumps, holes, sharp turns, and other road hazards, which may cause the vehicle to bounce.
  • Avoid sharp turns or locked wheel braking.

Information

  • Install tyre chains on the front tyres. It should be noted that installing tyre chains on the tyres will provide a greater driving force, but will not prevent side skids.
  • Do not install studded tyres without first checking local and municipal regulations for possible restrictions against their use.

Chain Installation

When installing tyre chains, follow the manufacturer's instructions and mount them as tightly possible. Drive slowly (less than 20 mph (30 km/h)) 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 the noise stops. Remove the tyre chains as soon as you begin driving on cleared roads.

When mounting snow chains, park the vehicle on level ground away from traffic. Turn on the vehicle Hazard Warning Flasher and place a triangular emergency warning device behind the vehicle (if available). Always place the vehicle in P (Park), apply the parking brake and turn off the engine before installing snow chains.

NOTICE

If your vehicle has 225/40ZR18 size tyres do not use tyre chain; they can damage your vehicle (wheel, suspension and body).

NOTICE

When using tyre chains:

  • Wrong size chains or improperly installed chains can damage your vehicle's brake lines, suspension, body and wheels.
  • Use SAE “S” class or wire chains.
  • If you hear noise caused by chains contacting the body, retighten the chain to prevent contact with the vehicle body.
  • To prevent body damage, retighten the chains after driving 0.3~0.6 miles (0.5~1.0 km).
  • Do not use tyre chains on vehicles equipped with aluminium wheels. If unavoidable, use a wire type chain.
  • Use wire chains less than 12 mm (0.47 in) wide to prevent damage to the chain’s connection.
