This answer was rated:

I just purchased snow chains for my 2007 XL7. The manual says to not use any snow chains due to lack of clearance. The vendor told me the chains are fine for clearance if installed on the rear tires. What do you think?
good evening my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you.

the vendor wanted to make a sale.

using the chains will damage the car and the tires. the manual is correct. I would return the chains to your vendor.

I suggest a winter style tire for your car versus the chains.
