  3. 2WD, mud... chains??

    Off The Beaten Path
    I took my 2006 2WD down dirt roads in badlands and Utah this past summer. All went well until I got caught one morning in a campground 12 miles out after a drenching thunderstorm. Then it was pretty darn sketchy getting out of there. Slick mud about 2 - 3 inches deep and a steep cliff on one...

  6. Tires chains and AWD/stability control system

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I’ll be going up to the mountains where the snow gets fierce. For those AWD EX-L owners using snow chains, are you turning off the stability control system and installing the chains on the front tires? Or leaving the system ON and just going with the chains on the fronts? TYIA

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum but it seemed close so I apologize if I guessed wrong. :) Anyway, I have the subject CR-V and will be going to the mountains soon. While AWD should handle most situations, we are required to least carry chains. As such, I purchased the...

    Hello I have been advised by my Honda dealer that the only snow chains I can use on my Honda CR-V are the Michelin Easygrip range. My tyres are 225 60R 18 and there doesn't appear to be anything within the Easygrip range that corresponds exactly to these dimensions. I did send an e-mail to...
