As I can't fit diamond chains to the front wheels (due to clearance problems), what about if I were to fit the diamond chains to the back wheels. (the car is a Volvo XC60 AWD) as I don't have the same clearance problems on the rear wheels.
I know chains are supposed to go on the front wheels (but if they don't fit)
Still looking for a solution.
I reckon you've found the the solution.
Mac check in your owners manual, my guess would be that it states that chains can not be fitted to the front wheels. As long as is doesn't state that they can't also be fitted to the rear then you are sweet. There is no law about fitting to front wheels on 4wd. (or none that I know of).
Always check the manual as some state front only, some rear only and some you must fit to all 4 wheels!!!
