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
BMW X6: use only in pairs on rear wheels of size 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.

Do not initialize the Flat Tire Monitor if snow chains are mounted; otherwise, the instrument might issue an incorrect reading.

When driving with snow chains, it can be beneficial to temporarily activate DTC
