Hi folks,

I'm looking for information on using tire chains or cables with my GTI. I haven't found anything online, and I don't have access to an owner's manual, so could someone fill me in? Is there any restriction on using them with 17" or 18" rims? Anybody have any experience putting them on the 18" rims?

I live in San Francisco and go snowboarding in the Tahoe area. So snow tires are unnecessary, but I'll definitely need chains or cables for Tahoe.

Thanks.

Can anyone believe that I've lived in Canada most of my life and have never seen a car with chains on?

I think they're illegal here... or maybe it's considered "cheating".

Yeah I've never seen them anywhere except Tahoe. Probably because the people who drive up there from warmer climates don't have M+S tires. But California Hwy Patrol requires all cars to carry chains :(
