Give your dually truck traction in heavy snow with these twist-link chains. Built-in cam tighteners make fitting and tightening the chains a snap. Includes 2 dual-wheel-configured chains (driver's and passenger's side).


Features:

  • Provides traction for your dually truck in deep snow
    • Twist links and twisted cross chains are ideal for deep snow, but affords you some grip on ice too
    • Ladder pattern contributes to excellent traction and stopping power in forward motion
  • Installs easily with integrated, heavy-duty lever
    • Side cams provide effortless tightening - twist cams to pull chain taut around tires
    • Rubber adjusters (sold separately) are recommended for a tight fit
  • Constructed of low-carbon steel for durability
  • Designed for highway use - not intended for off-road applications


Specs:

  • Fits: 22-1/2" - 24-1/2" tires (for exact sizes, see below)
  • Quantity: 2 dual-tire chains (driver's side and passenger's side)
  • 90-Day warranty


Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if chains might affect your ABS/ESP functionality, consult your owner's manual.


These chains are great for giving you extra traction in deep snow. But if you're more likely to see seriously icy conditions, you may want a chain with square or V-bar links that can really bite into the ice for more traction.


Glacier designed these chains specifically for duallies. Some chains on the market stretch to fit over both of the tires on your dual-wheel setup, but these chains have a dividing piece in the center that allows them to fit over each tire individually. This makes it easier to center the chains when you install them. Once you have the chains installed, just twist the built-in cams to easily tension them around your tires.


Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new snow chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer.


We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.


You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. These can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.


Installing Snow Chains

Installing tire chains is easy.


Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground, to make sure there are no twists or kinks.


Cross chain connections should have the prongs facing away from the tire

2. Drape the chain over your dual tires, making sure that the prongs attaching the cross chains to the side chains face away from your sidewalls. Drive forward about half a tire rotation.


Connect chains on the back and front of the tire

3. On the back of the tire, pull the chain tight and hook the ends together. Repeat this on the center chain and the side chain on the front of the tire, then clamp the lever to fasten extra chain links and keep them from flapping as you drive.


Use tool to tighten cams on the sidewall chains

4. Insert the included tool into the cam and twist to tighten the sidewall chain. Twist as many cams as it takes to get a tight fit.



Rubber adjusters ensure a tight fit

5. Drive forward 2-3 vehicle lengths and recheck the chain tension. Tighten any loose cams.


If needed, rubber adjusters (sold separately) can help you get a tight fit. Make sure the hooks on the adjusters face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.


Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chain, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire.


Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

These snow chains are fantastic!
We
use them on all three of our yard trucks.
Easy install, durable and virtually damage to concrete surfaces.
What else can you ask for..




by:

Tire chains are usually pretty generic. What makes these chains outstanding however are the latches. The long lever is easy to use with cold hands and/or gloves. They also make it easier to install the chains after the truck is stuck, which is usually sort of difficult. I hang these chains on all my trucks, and am a repeat customer many times over.




by:

These are good chains. My last set lasted a long time with no broken cross links. I just finally wore them out. I like the lever style latch on the outside rail since it gives a few more options when chaining up after I'm already stuck. :(

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


2017 Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins. These chains were easy to install and fit solidly. They do not have the cam system so you will need bungee cords. I set up 2 rubber bungees per tire and added a hook in the middle. Works perfect. They fit my 285/65/20s with room to spare. I have not used these in the field yet but I grew up using tires chains and these are no different.

Received my order today. I ordered chains for both sides of dually front and back. Today I received ONE chain for ONE side of dually. ONE SINGLE CHAIN. Good work, fix it!!

I know that we ped the ball on this one and we are working to have the missing chain shipped out to you.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Appear to be very high quality.
Install
easily.
Rubber tensioners are unnecessary.
After a quick 50’ roll, loosen cams, readjust hooks and retighten cams: tight enough to work properly, loose enough to settle into their home and squirm (very little) to better suit the terrain.
They were purchased “just in case”, but I have no doubt that they will perform admirably, should the need arise!

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


The people were good to work with. The problem was they sent me the wrong tire chains two times. So after sending the chains back two times I canceled the order. They came with no locking hook ends on the chain.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Had to pull the chains out for the first time last month when my 1991 F-250 got held up on a very slick and steep ice covered road. They fit over my LT215/85R-16 Firestone Winterforce LT E tires very nicely and on the first try with no problems. I have only used chains on smaller cars before this but these installed very easily with the caming links and included tool for tightning. These chains seem to have a good range of adjustment and were also easy to remove. They seem sturdy and well made and of course traction was very solid once they were installed. Highly recommended.


Comments
Great. I put the chains wet in plastic bags for a year and they hardly rusted at all. Installed them on my larger 23585R-16 tires and they do fit that size too.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Although I haven't used them in ice or snow yet, the snow chains appear to be of great quality and are very easy to install. The cam tighteners work nicely and hold the chain on the tire with no slack. Etrailer.com was great to work with. Ordering was easy. They kept me updated via email during the shipping process. They upgraded my free shipping and I received my order in 2 business days instead of 7 as projected originally. I can tell that they care about their customers.


Comments
I got them after the big snowice storm we had here last year. I only had the opportunity to use them one time since getting them and really just went out then to try them out in some slush. I like them and enjoy the fact that they are in the truck at all times. It doesnt snow/ice much here, but Im ready if it does. Its bad to be like this, but I hope it snows this year just so I can use my chains? Ha!I have told others about your company and encouraged them to get chains from you.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Excellent chains on 2005 GMC Sierra. Cam Locks are good but you really need to use a tire bungee or equivalent to pull the chains tighter. I use wire ties for the extra length of chain on the inside and outside firewall. Turns the truck into a total snow beast, I have yet to get stuck and have never used the winch I bought for that purpose.


Comments
Sold the GMC, bought a 2011 Tundra 4.6L DoubleCab. These chains fit a little better on that vehicle. This time the chains are on an all season radial, not snow tires. Makes the truck invincible as a plow machine. I install them on a level garage floor and make very sure they are on super tight.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Perfect fit for my van.

I drive
a 2016 144" 2wd, high top Sprinter van. During the summer it moves a lot of ice cream, via 400lb ice cream carts. During the winter, it moves me to Mammoth. When the conditions are good (for skiing).....road conditions suck...super cold and icy.....395 from Bishop to Mammoth is often closed, and if open...chains or 4x4 snow tires mandatory.

I've purchased other products here...This site consistently provides useful revues and sizing fitment advise...I also took etrailer's recommendation to my regular tire guy to confirm is was a good match- which he confirmed.

*Any Sprinter specific owners reading this.....the stock tires felt super sketchy in icy high sierra without the chains. But with them on, and, since I roll with a 750lb. lift gate weighing down the back end.....back tires chained up.....I felt really safe. I did need to trim a 3-4 links off to stop the inside access chain links banging on the axel (bolt cutters from Mammoth Chevron) after a day of riding around on them to make sure I had correct fit. This level of fitment should be expected.

**I never review things online. I believe the email from etrailer, which led me to this review is the first i've received from them.....maybe 1 year since I bought the chains?....perfect amount of contact.

***Attached is a picture of me at Mammoth, because who wants to see a picture of well fitting chains.

Exactly what I was told they would be. A descent low end chain. Not a disposable like the really cheap ones, but not for anyone who needs a truly durable chain. These are a good choice for the once every two or three years user.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I recently purchased a new Ram 3500 to pull our new Keystone Outback travel trailer. My Tundra just couldn't do the job. We do a lot of national forest camping and trail riding. I have a Diamondback ATV Carrier so we can put both ATVs on the truck, hook up the trailer and go. I've used eTrailer for years and knew right where to go for my additions for the Ram. Air bag suspension and snow/mud chains were my first purchases. I haven't had a chance to chain up yet, but I know they will be fine. Its a shame the set for my Tundra doesn't fit. However, I mounted the air bags right away and immediately went on a 3600 mile round trip, Colorado Springs to Washington DC. They worked flawlessly. The ride was smooth, no porpoising, and no leaks. I recommend eTrailer every chance I get and will always go here first for my truck and trailer parts. They simply can't be beat in price, ease of ordering, quick delivery and their outstanding customer service.

Chains fit well, are heavy duty, and the included tightening tool worked great. Cam tighteners are a must.
I would recommend these to others.
My old truck is now ready for winter.
The front tires chains are PWH221SC.

Chains fit well, are heavy duty, and the included tightener tool worked great. Cam Tighteners are a must. Makes the job of putting the chains on easier.
I bought the dual wheel version chains for the back end as well. We tend to get ice under snow on a gravel lane. These chains should keep me moving.
I would recommend these to others.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


The order was handled very fast, and I got the snow chains in no time.
Those are chains for big vehicle, they are heavy and sturdy.
Comparing to diamond pattern chains that I had perilously, the new chains almost impossible to tangle. It takes just 30 seconds to lay them correctly on the ground.
In my garage I put them as instructed in the video on etrailer web page. But in real life scenario, on highway shoulder, I would probably lay them down on the ground, drive 2-3 feet forward and try to close the chains on top of the wheel (versus crawling on the ground and trying to reach behind the wheel).
The tension system is simple and intuitive. Comparing again to diamond pattern chains, this tension system is much more robust.

The only downside of those chains, they miss caring bag. The bag they where shipped in, has no zipper, and cannot be closed once open.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Great chains! Get them on as tight as possible with all the cams facing out, drive a short way and then tighten the cams where needed. Very easy install and the grip is excellent - got us safely through the snowstorm that just hit Tahoe.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I've looked for weeks for chains to fit my 34x10.5-17 tires but without luck. I even called a few other tire chain folks and they told me they couldn't help me. I then tried another search online and came across etrailer.com. They said they not only had a set of chains but they were in stock and could be shipped out the same day. They arrived in 2 days. I fit them on my truck and they fit perfectly. They are very heavy duty and exactly as etrailer said they would be. These guys are the best and I'll be referring folks to them. Thank you etrailer!!

Everything about this order from browsing the eTrailer web site, to calling and talking to customer service (George), to ordering and receiving the tire chains was excellent. I got what I ordered and the chains fit my vehicle perfect. Thanks to eTrailer for understanding what customer service is all about.

Installed these on both tires and it only took under 30 minutes. Watched a online video and installation went exactly as in the vid. Terrific fit on the 03 Ranger 15" 2 wheel drive vehicle.
Used 5 spoke tighteners and everything is ready to go. Drove a couple of hundred feet down the drive and all went well.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2016 Thor RV Built on Ford E-450 Chassis
    We do have Class S tire chains that will fit your tire size of LT225/75R16 but none that are setup to fit both rear tires at the same time. However we do have a solution. What you can do is install a set of chains on the outside tires and still get great traction in the snow. For that we have the Titan Chains part # TC2319 which will fit your tire size, are pretty easy to install, and will give you great traction. That price is tough to beat on these.
