CR-V tire chains
I have a question for you Honda CR-V owners... I have a '99 with its "real-time 4wd", and the manual clearly states that tire chains should only go on the front wheels. That doesn't sit too well with me, as I would have thought that if you're in a position to actually need 4wd, then you'll need chains on the rear wheels too. But alas the manual predicts all sorts of horrors should you put chains on the rear wheels (end of the world, that kind of thing), and in general seems in denial about the 4wd ability of the vehicle.
So, what do you CR-V owners do? Stick to the front wheels? Put them on all 4 and ignore the manual?
