How fast should you drive with chains on your tires?

Its important to know that you need the correct size chains for your tires. If they are properly adjusted well fitted chains. You should be able to travel up to 40mph depending on road conditions. Keep in mind the average speed you drive with chains is consistent with how long they will last. I tend to keep it under 30mph. As a general guideline, 30mph on properly tightened and adjusted chains should be max. If the conditions are bad enough to warrant the use of chains you should anticipate a slow rate of travel and not be in a hurry or try to 'push' the boundaries of what is safe or prudent. This is true for 'cables' as well as 'chains'
