Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Notes on snow chains

WARNING Risk of accident due to incorrect mounting of snow chains
If you have mounted snow chains to the front wheels, the snow chains may drag against the vehicle body or chassis components.

This could cause damage to the vehicle or the tires.

  • Never mount snow chains on the front wheels.
  • Only mount snow chains on the rear wheels in pairs.


NOTE Damage to the wheel trim from mounted snow chains
If snow chains are mounted to steel wheels, the wheel trims can be damaged.
  • Remove the wheel trims of steel wheels before mounting snow chains.

Observe the following notes when using snow chains:

  • Snow chains are only permissible for certain wheel/tire combinations. You can obtain information about this from an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center.
  • For safety reasons, only use snow chains that have been specifically approved for your vehicle by Mercedes-Benz, or snow chains with the same quality standard.
  • If snow chains are installed, the maximum permissible speed is 30 mph (50 km/h).
  • Vehicles with Active Parking Assist: Do not use Active Parking Assist when snow chains are installed.
  • Vehicles with level control: If snow chains are installed, only drive at raised vehicle level.

You can deactivate ESP to pull away. This allows the wheels to spin, achieving an increased driving force.
