Um as a new Subaru owned who used to Own a Ford Focus and goes to the MTN. to Board several times a year I have Never Personally seen a Suby stopped and forced to put on chains. They are usually waved through.

And Also when I bought my Suby back in March they told me this same thing, Tire Chains on rear only. The Salesman said it is in the User Manuel If I forget.
