Just got my P8 (love it) with 20” wheels and was curious if anyone has driven in the snow with chains yet? I read in the Volvo owners manual that Volvo doesn’t recommended using chains on wheels larger than 18”. However, Volvo lists and sells chains for my P8 with 20” wheels. Additionally, my dealer had me sign a document that I would not use snow chains on the vehicle, but they sell the snow chains for my vehicle. A bit confusing, any insight here?

Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing situation?

You would imagine using official Volvo chains (and that nifty pad thingy) would not void anything and yet … here you are being told that.

Perhaps write to big Volvo and see what they say.

I've had vehicles say "no chains" but traction devices with cables are allowed -- lower profile, less chance of whipping from centrifugal forces, etc.

I did look on Volvo's accessory site and it looks like what they offer has actual chains. So, this is interesting/odd.
