Cable chains or link type, makes no difference as far as Subaru is concerned re putting them on front wheels - both are a no-no.
Also, State regulations in Calif. make no distinction between the two types, so that is why we use the term interchangeably here. Either type works to comply with regs.....
I am looking for someone with Subaru tech expertise to advise if there is any issues with putting them on the rear only, when required by regulation, such as damage to transmission, etc.. As I said earlier, it makes sense to me from a purely observational standpoint, as there is more room in the rear for clearance and only the brake lines to worry about, etc. if they broke.
