2007 Honda Pilot. Do I need snow chains on all tires?

I’m taking my brand new 2007 Honda Pilot near Mt. Rainier this weekend to harvest a Christmas tree. The path to the cabin is a less-than-well maintained forest service road. It will be very snowy and very icy. I want to use chains in addition to the VTM-4, but am not sure if I have to use them on all four tires — I have heard conflicting opinions. Please advise ASAP!!

    Since your Honda Pilot has VTM-4 (an all wheel drive mechanism), you are better of putting chains on all four tires because this system will shift quite a bit in this situation to get the best traction and you do not want it to have to select only between two wheels. Do have fun.

    Only need chains on the front wheels. I asked and checked with the manual. Have fun!

    a good set of spiked snow tires will do the job just fine and keep 4wd on and your good to go. dont bother with chains there good and all but a pain in the *** to get on. when you hit pavement you have to take them off fast, it will hurt your tires
