Snow chains

Only certain fine-link snow chains have been tested by BMW, classified as safe for use and recommended. Consult your service center for more information.

BMW X5: use only in pairs on the rear wheels, equipped with tires of the following size:

▷ 255/55 R 18
▷ 255/50 R 19

Observe the manufacturer's instructions when mounting snow chains. Do not exceed a speed of 30 mph/50 km/h when using snow chains.
