  • Link thickness: 0.177" (4.5 mm)
  • Maximum speed rating: 30 mph
  • Quantity: 2 tire chains
  • 30-Day limited warranty


Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large, aftermarket tires - may require Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearances

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself.

Installation

Installation Step 1

1. Drape the chain over the tire, making sure that the side chain with the lever is on the outside. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)


Installation Step 2

2. Reach around behind the tire and fasten the ends of the chain together.


Installation Step 3

3. Move back to the front of the tire and fasten the ends of the chain together using the built-in lever.


Installation Step 4

4. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed by moving the hook to the next link.


You can use rubber or chain adjusters (sold separately) to increase the tension on the chains for a tighter fit.


How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

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


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

Video Transcript for Titan Chain Twist Link Tire Chains Review - 2016 Toyota Camry

Today on our 2016 Toyota Camry we're going to be test fitting the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains, part number TC1138. Today we're working with tire size 205-65-R16. This particular set of tire chains has a ladder pattern to it, and they have these twist links here which will form cross chains, which gives you very good traction on snow, and adequate traction on ice. The ladder pattern design will assist you with effective starts and stops, and these chains are very easy to install and adjust if needed. These are SAE Class S chains as well, and that means they work well with vehicles with limited wheel well clearance. These chains are made from a low carbon steel, and when everything is said and done they come with a convenient carrying case so once you're finished you take them off the tire, you put them back, and into your trunk for the next time. Before we install these chains onto our tires it's always a good idea to lay them out in front of them just to make sure you work out any kinks in the lines, and to make sure that they're facing the right direction.

For example with our chains here you want to make sure the portion with the bend where you have the edges here is facing away from the tire. We'll start by draping our tire chains over the tire, trying to keep them even on both sides, and then we'll actually turn the tire all the way to the right to make it a little bit easier to make our connections in the rear. We'll take our two ends, the hooks and the chain links, and we'll go as far as we can in securing those. Then we'll turn the tire back towards the front and make our connections in the front. Hook it through our link, bring it back if we can, if not just go to a closer link. There we go.

Then hook it back on to itself like so. Titan Chains also recommend that you use rubber tensioners to assist with having that tight grip around the tire. Today we're using part number TCMA2. Now you do want to make sure when we attach these rubber tensioners that the hooks are facing away from the tire as well. We'll just work our way around and we're ready to hit the road. Now after you initially install these chains drive for just a short distance, and then double check and make sure that the tensioning device and the tension itself is where it needs to be.

There you have it for the Titan Chain Snow Tite Chains, part number TC1138 on our 2016 Toyota Camry.

Sorry this is not a product review, as we haven't had snow since I got the chains. But it is comforting to know they are in my trunk. I did want to say that I had excellent experience with etrailer. The communication and support was stellar, and the product arrived very well packed on the day that was quoted. 328199

Planning on a trip very soon. I found that I should have snow chains for our safety. I checked etrailer.com and not ony found what I need, but at a very good price. I ordered and hoped it would arrive in time. Low and behold, not only was it a quick delivery, but was way faster than I thought it would take. etrailer.com has never let me down anytime I have needed them. I highly recommend them. 473547

I have not actually had the opportunity to put on and use my new snow chains yet. But, I am happy with the shipping process, although they had arrived one day later than the date that was suggested by UPS. I'm sure that my snow chains will work just fine when I need to use them for the first time. No ice on our local area roads right now... 334322

I bought tire chains for the new Chevy truck that I just bought. I purchased the chains for piece of mind, just in case I ever needed to continue down the muddy/snowy road. To this date, I have only installed the chains once. While in the garage to make sure they fit. 607069

Can't really talk about the actual performance of the chain in action since it is 100 degrees outside right now. Bought these to prepare for next winter. I have recently changed cars and tire sizes from my old chain set. However, I can talk about the process. Ordering was easy and shipping was swift. I assume these chains will be perfect. You may assume the same if I don't come back in Jan 2019 and say differently. The pricing was the very lowest and half price of everyone else. Even if I had to use these as parts for other chains it was worth the price for parts alone. Get one before they figure out the price is too low. 522370

This set is being used on front tires of a 31 hp tractor for snow plowing. Another two pair I use on my Tundra while working on steep, slippery logging roads. The locking cams are absolutely great. No more worries about having a chain come and tear off a brake line. 590015

Did not fit 275/60R20 as listed on the internet website. The outside chain required two extra chain links to secure the chains. The chains appeared very durable and worked on a short test run tearing up the grass in my yard. 561586

Good price so bought two pairs for 1999 4X4 F-350. Put them on and they fit, the cams are great Idea for snugging up chains. Do not have to rely on rubber tensioners that get old brittle when finally need to use them. Have not run them in snow yet but look like will be fine. Notice that these chains also cover a wide range of tires sizes, in case want to go up a tire size from stock they will fit. 331012

Haven't tried out the product so I can't comment on how they work however they did arrive on time. The bag they come in for storage isn't really what I expected and is of poor quality. The bag is more like a sack with no way to seal it and no handles. Not impressed in the bag which is supposed to be used for storage. 463160

I got the chains quickly. Boy are they heavy. Very good service from Shawn B. She sent a video showing how to put them on. I set up the tire, wrapping the chains on the driver's side. All worked well until I tried to close the cam locks. One was too tight and would not slide over the chain link. I took it to my workbench and filed the slot so it would clear the link. Also, these eat into bare asphalt, so watch what you are doing in your driveway. I am from Illinois where chains are not allowed. The reason that I have them is to meet a requirement in the western National Parks. Hopefully I will not have to use them, but am glad to have them if they are needed. 326052

Not sure these chains would last on a Ford F250 diesel. They are really designed for light weight subcompact passenger car. We shall see .... I am not planning to carry any significant weight on the snow so they should hold up a few seasons. The price is awesome! 590890


Comments

Since the tire chains are made for a 265/75-16 wheel they should hold up on the Ford. Most trucks do have a larger tire on them but since you are not putting any extra weight in the back I do not see you having an issue with the chains.

Good chains for the price. Used them about 6 X with out a problem. Be sure to get the rubber tensioners as they help a lot. Just a note and I'm pretty sure the e-trailer review said something about it but they are only good up to about 15 MPH not that you need to go that much faster but on a several mile trek back to the cabin it would be nice to do 30 or so..... the fact that they do their job is reason enough for four stars. If they would just install themselves.... bwahahaha 340694

Thanks for your review, Joe! Great news! Per the manufacturer, these chains are rated for 30 mph.

I made a mistake and had to order 2 pairs and they called to verify this was correct, they did not want to bill my twice by mistake. I received my chains in the mail via UPS less than 5 days after I ordered them, despite it being the holiday season! Great customer service and look forward to doing business in the future! 320405

Yesterday was the second time I've used my chains. Half of the rungs broke on one side on one of the chains. Today (third time using them), one rung broke on the other chain. The first time I used them (last year) they held up very well for the most part. They were very easy to put on. The only problem I had at that time was that the triangle shaped piece (that holds the swan shaped connector in place) bends very easily and can't be disconnected after that. 463079

A Bag of Chains is better that a Sack of Coal for Christmas. Seriously, if it's slick outside from snow or ice, one bag of tire chains will get me home safely. With a rear wheel drive pickup, I would need 10 bags of coal to get a grip. I'm glad they came in a heavy duty canvas bag which takes up less room than a plastic box- that might not last a season. Also, etrailer.com had an easy-to-use tire size guide to match to the right products, and a good selection of products to choose from. Mainly, these chains give me the confidence to be the backcountry when the weather report is sketchy. 325459

Funny that you should write, were expecting snow tomorrow, so I put the chains back in the truck. Sorry, nothing else to report.

I had some concerns about the chains fitting my vehicle, 2015 Ram 1500 with P275/60R20. I couldn't find any information from Dodge, nor my dealer, but Etrailer.com just happen to have a video showing 3 options for my exact truck. I tried them on to make sure they fit, and they fit pretty snug and look like they will do just fine. I haven't tested them in the snow, but I will write a follow up review once that happens. 233458

This is the 3rd set of chains I've bought from eTrailer, the first 2 sets were for my work truck and this most recent purchase was for my personal truck. I work as a delivery driver and bought the first set of chains because i don't have a lot of say which snowy/icy roads i deliver to. Being a work truck the first set of chains got abused a bit so when they finally failed it wasn't unexpected, but up until that point they were nothing short of perfect. So far the 2nd set for my work truck is going strong (with a bit more effort not to abuse them as much). This 3rd set is for my personal truck and more for peace-of-mind than anything else, i doubt they will see more than extremely rare use but i have no doubts that they will work as well as i expect them to. I have not yet taken advantage of the "customer service" from eTrailer since every single thing I've ordered has been received and worked exactly as expected. Communication regarding my order and shipping has always been excellent and even better than i expected. Shipping has been super fast and I've received my products days before i thought i would. ***the picture included isn't exactly the best but you can see the chains and conditions that day (that truck is about the worst vehicle for driving in winter conditions)... also those chains are a different size but they are the same chains. 336478

Very happy with etrailer web site, ordering, support, notification and product. Easy to follow instructions included in product. Purchased chains for our Honda Odyssey with P235/60R18 tires. Chains easy to install. After a couple fit tests I found I needed to cut the tire perimeter circumferential main chains back to the link holding the last cross tire chain (note: I did not cut the link holding the last cross chain, I cut the next link closer to the chain end thus making the link holding the cross chain the last link. I also cut the last cross tire cross chain at the two links where they attach to the main circumferential front and back chains. This was no big deal as I have a pair of bolt cutters and this is not the first time I have had to fit chains to my tire. Once cut and fitted drove up and down the driveway accumulating several yards driven. I found you will need to retighten after my test which was easy. Have yet to give them the real test in snow. 238347

Ask the Experts about this Titan Chain Tire Chains

Do you have a question about this Tire Chain?


  • How Fast Can you Go with Tire Chains Installed
  • With the Titan Chains like the # TC1138 installed we typically recommend a speed rating of between 30-35 miles per hour as the maximum speed. There are no chains that will allow you to travel faster than that. Also, if you are in snowy enough conditions to call for chains you probably shouldn't be going faster than 30-35 MPH even with the extra traction that chains provide.

  • Tire Chain Availability for Tire Sizes 245/40R18 and 255/60/R17
  • Yes we can help you get setup with tire chains for both vehicles but the sizes of the tires are different enough that one set isn't going to fit both. For the 245/40R18 the # TC1138 that you referenced is a fit and would work well. For a similar set that fits the 255/60R17 we have the part # TC3010 which is a confirmed fit. Be sure to check the owners manual of both vehicles to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Can Snow Tire Chains for 2004 Chevy Venture be Used to Get Out of Mud
  • You can use any method you like to get you out of mud though there are a couple of things to note. The first is that you will need chains that have an off-road designation and the other is that you need to follow the guidelines for using chains that is in the owner's manual of your 2004 Venture which states you should use Class S chains on the front tires only. There is one chain that fits the bill on the size 215/70-15 or 215/70-15 tires that are common to '04 Ventures, the Titan Chain...

  • Tire Chains that Will Fit 225/60-16 and 225/60-17 Tires on a 2000 and 2013 Subaru Outback
  • The Thule tire chains will not fit both tire sizes but you could use the Glacier chains # PWPLC1138. They do fit 225/60-16 and 225/60-17 tires. You can also use Titan chains # TC1138. For these chains I recommend adding the rubber adjusters, # TCMA2. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manuals for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have included some video links and a link to our help article on tire chains for you to the right.

  • Class S Tire Chains For 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I did some research on your 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon and found that only Class S tire chains are to be used, and they are only to be used on the front tires. Tire chains are size specific so you will want to know the tire size before choosing tire chains for your Outback. From our fit guide I found that there are 3 typical tire sizes on the Outback so I will give a recommendation based on that. The tire sizes are 205/50-17, 225/55-17, and 225/60-16. If you have a tire size that...

  • Recommended Snow Chains for a 1998 Chevy Astro Van
  • If you have the 215/75-15 size tires on your 1998 Chevrolet Astro then I recommend using the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXP570 because they are easy to install and feature square links in a diamond pattern for great traction. For a more cost-effective option I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC1138 which uses twist links in a ladder pattern. These aren't quite as easy to install but they will get the job done. Attached is a review video of the...

  • Comparing Titan Tire Chains TC1254 and TC1138 for Use on 2015 Toyota Camry
  • Titan Tire Chain Sets # TC1254 and # TC1138 differ in certain construction features and in the tire sizes they will fit. Chain set # TC1254 has links that are 5.3mm thick and that fit 14- to 16-inch tires. Chain set # TC1138 uses thinner 4.5mm links that make it suitable on vehicles with 14- to 19-inch tires that require this special low-profile S-Class type chain.
