Because of the upcoming winter seaseon, I was considering buying winter tires and snow chains for my SEL 4motion 2018. Unfortunately the manual specifies that R17 rims/wheels only would be appropriate to install snow chains. But my Atlas comes with R20. Anybody would have an advice regarding chains for my R20 rims. Any experience with chains on this rim size?

Tkm for any advice from Lukastan, Germany

I know nothing about chains.

17" definitely won't fit on the Atlas.
You can go to 18" rims (245/60R18), which I would suggest anyways. I got steel rims for about $75 CAD/each. 20" winter tires are going to cost you more money anyways, and with 18" rims you won't have to worry about dinging your nice rims as much.

TKS. The problem is that I imported the beast to Germany. So I had to go for a specific single permission to be allowed to drive it. And this only allows 20" rims, as I learned yesterday fro the authorities...
