Snow tires and chains

Snow tires and chains  - Tires, Wheels and Loading - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

WARNING: Snow tires must be the same size, load index, speed rating as those originally provided by Ford. Use of any tire or wheel not recommended by Ford can affect the safety and performance of your vehicle, which could result in an increased risk of loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death.

Additionally, the use of non-recommended tires and wheels could cause steering, suspension, axle or transfer case/power transfer unit failure.

The tires on your vehicle have all-weather treads to provide traction in rain and snow. However, in some climates, you may need to use snow tires and cables.

Note: The suspension insulation and bumpers will help prevent vehicle damage. Do not remove these components from your vehicle when using snow tires and chains.

Follow these guidelines when using snow tires and chains:

Х If possible, avoid fully loading your vehicle.
Х Use only SAE Class S cables or equivalent.
Х Use SAE Class S cables only on the front axle on vehicles equipped with P245/60R18 tires.
Х Do not use tire cables or optional traction devices with P245/50R20 or P265/40R22 tires.
Х Install cables securely, verifying that the cables do not touch any wiring, brake lines or fuel lines.
Х Drive cautiously. If you hear the cables rub or bang against your vehicle, stop and retighten the cables. If this does not work, remove the cables to prevent damage to your vehicle.
Х Do not exceed 30 mph (48 km/h) with tire cables on your vehicle.
Х Remove the tire cables when they are no longer needed. Do not use tire cables on dry roads.
