    Wheels / Suspension FX35 and tire chains

    I have a FX35 2009 AWD, standard vanilla; Wanted to buy and use tire chains or tire cables (class S) on both front and rear.

    The owners manual says: Tire chains must be installed only on the rear
    wheels and not on the front wheels.

    What's the rationale for this limitation? Shall I ignore it or heed it?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    thats because our FX's are rear wheel drive. Unless you have an AWD

    Even with AWD you're only supposed to use one set of chains and on the front? That's strange because most of the power is sent to the rear wheels right?
