New Subie owner (05' OBW XT), what's the deal with snow chains for Subarus? I've read and heard differing opinions (diamond chains versus Z-style cable chains)? Front wheel application only? Any input?

On an AWD best is to put them on all four, I run dedicated studded snows and have not used chains since.
Just be sure you have plenty of clearance between the tires and springs struts. If they are too loose, not put on correctly, or come off you can do a lot damage to your car.
