Hello guys,
Need a bit of advice on chains. Going to Lake Tahoe and I'm wondering what axle is best to install chains. My guess is front axle is better but after reading a bit, the advice is to check with the manufacturer. Also does it makes a difference having chains in both axles? Thanks in advance

I’ve driven a bunch with chains, you really only want them if the road is a sheet of ice.

Manual recommends rear tires. You also need s-type chains. Not enough clearance otherwise. A few weeks ago I drove a few miles chained up front and damage but I didn’t like it. Seems like lots of stuff is real close up front and liable to get damaged..
