Chain fitting instructions Passenger cars

Passenger cars: Always on the drive axle

4x4 all-terrain vehicles:
Please note the instructions in your manual.

All chains are suitable for front- and rear wheel drive. Please refer to the manufacturer’s instructions in your vehicle operating manual. We recommend the bracket chain „Profi“, which does not require accessing the wheel arch, for narrow wheel arches with limited clearance particularly in rear wheel drive cars.

Chain with rim protection


      Field of application:

  • For front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles
  • Suitable for small, mid-range and luxury class vehicles

      Quality description / handling:

  • Tyre contact area 12 mm / Strength of chain link 3.5 mm
  • Ottinger stand mounting system / Colour-coded locking points for quick, easy stand assembly
  • With ice-free quick release
  • Rim guard - thermoplastic elements protect the alloy wheel rims from damage and scratches


  • D-profile crosspieces with ice edge from wear-resistant OSS special steel
  • With additional grip links for improved propulsion and braking force
  • Meshed chain net, durable and wear-resistant

Rim protection technology

The position of the snow chain on the tire changes, according to the driving behaviour (see picture 2 + 3). Therefore it is possible, that snow chains, which have no contact first with the rim after mounting, could also damage the rim later (see picture 1 + 4). Ottinger snow chains with rim protection, which have thermoplastic protection elements and distance device, protect your rim against damages through the snow chain at every driving behaviour and keep also the design of the wheels/rims
