Installation Step 2

2. Connect the yellow and blue cable at the back of the tire.

Installation Step 3

3. Push the cable into place behind the tire and center the cross chains on the tire's tread. Then, on the front side of the tire, join the 2 ends of the yellow side chain using the green hook.

Installation Step 4

4. Feed the silver draw chain with the rubber tensioner through the red channel at the bottom and pull it tight. Then run the tensioner through the red rings. (Note: Depending on your tire size, you might not be able to thread through both rings.) Pull the tensioner across the tire and fasten it to the yellow chain on the opposite side.

Installation Step 5

5. Pull your vehicle forward and retighten the chain.

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.

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, as shown below.

Tire size on sidewall


  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 Alloy Snow Tire Chains Review

Adam: Hi everyone, Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at Titan Chains Alloy Snow Tire Chains. One thing I do like about these tire chains compared to your ladder chains, we don't have any connection to make around back. A lot of the times underneath, we have the climb on the ground, go around back, and then connect it. This way it's just up top here so we don't have to get down in the snow. Because if you're putting snow tire chains on your tires, there's probably going to be snow on the ground.

You don't want to be rolling around in that.We do have some square links that are going to be made of manganese nickel alloy steel, so it's going to help resist rust and corrosion and just keep it from wearing down really quickly. It is SAE S Class certified, so it is going to give you a smooth ride and fit pretty well in your wheel well. It does have a diamond pattern, which is going to give you really good traction for stopping and acceleration.One thing I really do like about these tire chains is it does have a built in tensioner, which a lot of the times you're supposed to get these rubber tensioners that aren't attached to your chains, and I know I would probably lose them. Definitely it being completely attached to the chains is going to be a plus for me, just so you don't lose them. Also, this does have a speed rating of 30 miles an hour so we do suggest not going over that speed.It also comes with a pretty nice carrying case.

It's going to last a little bit longer than those canvas bags, those usually rip over time. This one, it's made of sturdier construction and has a zipper. You're going to keep your chains neat and organized in this case and you're not going to lose them. If you have an all wheel drive or four wheel drive application, all you really have to do is buy two sets. It does come in a pair of two and it's going to be the same exact installation process on both sides.

Let's just go ahead and get to it.The first thing we're going to want to do is lay out our chains and make sure there's no kinks in our links. If that's all looking good we can go ahead and fish this behind our tire. Once we have them back there we can put our hands in our wheel wells, grab both ends, and connect them. While we're back here, we're going to grab these chains and drape them over. We do want to make sure that this straight line here is going to be in the middle of our tire tread.

Once we have that set we can go ahead and take our green hook here to try to get it clipped on this yellow excess of chain.Once we get that and everything's nice and even, one thing I do want to note, you guys can see back in here, there's two different ends. We have the open section with these two pieces of metal. We want that facing away from our tire because we want to have that smooth part up against our rubber just so we don't damage our tires when in use.If all that checks out, you get this green hook connected, and then we can take our tensioning device which is actually built in, which is definitely a plus for me because I misplace stuff all the time, we're going to place it like so and give it a good tug and make sure it's nice and tight. Once we get that, we're going to go ahead and put them through these red loops. Once we do that, we'll come over here and connect them to the yellow part of our chain.Once we have all that set up, we want to make sure and see if it's tight, and if it is, we do recommend rolling over it a couple more times and then coming back out and make sure that tension stays as it is. If it is, we're ready to hit the road.Well everyone, thanks for tuning in and taking a look at our Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains.

They flat out work! Early morning commute after snow storm before the scrapers, they work. Secondary roads that never get scraped, they work. They're a must have in these situations. Easy on and easy off application.

- TC1530

Seem like great chains for the price. Have only tried one on at this point. 195/70R14

I grew up in Alabama and never had to deal with tire chains before. These were much easier than some of the general instructional videos I'd watched online before I found these. I practiced putting them on once in the garage, which took all of ten minutes, before hitting the road up into the Sierras toward Tahoe/Truckee, hoping I wouldn't need them. Of course I did, but I was amazed at how much less miserable the process of putting these on was compared to everyone else on the side of the road that day. My car is not the kind of hulk you expect to just barrel through snow and ice, and of course I proceeded very slowly with the chains on, but proceed we did. Am so, so glad we bought these, and thanks for the great service.

- TC1530

I found them a bit difficult to put on my tires, they almost feel a bit too small. The instructions say to loop the tightener through one or two loops, but I can't even get it through a single loop. I double checked my tire size (195/60/15), and I think that's right for these chains. Anyway, we'll see how they do in snow.

The tire chains are exactly what I wanted. More importantly, the service by etrailer was the best part of this buy. Helpful, always in contact, and they stay in touch until the item has arrived. Thanks

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These tire chains work very well on my 2019 Ford F-250. They were very easy to install and remove, provide excellent traction in snow or on ice, and come in a nice carrying case. In addition to the built-in tensioner, I also added a rubber loop-type tension to keep them tight. The only problem I encountered was during the 2021 winter storm in Texas. I think I was the only person in the Austin area with tire chains, and while I was in a grocery store someone stole both chains from my front tires (luckily, they left them on the rear tires). The first picture is when I first installed the chains (before the ice and then snow) - the second picture is after several days of driving in the snow and ice (and after the front chains were stolen).

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

After reviewing tech info and reviews I purchased Titan Alloy Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link part TC2533 for the 2018 Ram 2500. These are regular duty and a good fit. These chains offer a lot more clearance for the P-Brake cable. They are a cleaver design, have great carrying case and are fairly quick to install. I have not purchased winter tires for this vehicle so the Ram need chains to pull a travel trailer up and down our snow-covered road.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Just completed fit-check of these chains on my two vehicles (2016 Toyota Tundra, P255/70R18, Michelin LTX MS2; 2010 Toyota Sequoia, P275/55R20 111S M+S, Bridgestone Dueler H/L) and all is good! Hardest part of installation was untangling the chains to lay out on the ground (that always is, for me!). Practice makes it easier. Thank you etrailer! Rolling a few revolutions and re-tightening chains IS important. Don't leave that step out. I'm going to add rubber tensioners (old-school, I know) just to be sure. Pics are of the 2010 Sequoia and 2016 Tundra.

Ive only had to use them once in the year Ive had them I live in SoCal, after all!. Easy on, easy off. Work good.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

I really like the ease of installation of this style of chain. The diamond pattern is a smoother ride. They have good grip on thick ice. The manufacturer even included repair links and gloves to use if i wanted to dye my hair. I received my order faster than expected and really liked etrailers detailed order tracking.

Wow!! Installed in minutes and fit snug no chain flopping in fender well like other chains. These are half the weight than my other chains and Titans came with nice carry case as well. Thank you to Christina J for all your help and getting these to me just in time to hit the snow [thumbs up]

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Put these on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 20" factory wheels and tires. Fit is great, install is simple and quick. Probably not the chains you would run on a snow plow truck, but will probably be awesome for the occasional user like me. Fortunately I did not get to use them this winter... Yet.

Used the chains twice this winter. They work great, easier than others that I have had to install on the side of the road. Work well on ice, snow, and mud. Got me out of a jam twice. They are worth the money.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

"etrailer" is fast (no surpirse), we use them a lot. These chains ROCK. They go on SO EASY. The grip is KILLER, not just forward thrust, but the back end stays planted in corners (diamond pattern is why). My '96 F-250 throws serious snow and ice roost with these on. They come off just as easy: Unhook, swing the cable out of the way from behind the back of the tire, back up 3", fling them in the case. If you are really tired of floppy ladder chains and latches, trimming links and cable type chains (that just don't work)? GET THESE CHAINS. I've tested them in axle deep snow, thick ice, they didn't break, the truck flat hooks up and goes. These WORK- PERIOD!

Still roosting snow! Use them several times a week in winter. Good stuff. Getting another pair once these wear out.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Im am very very satisfied with purchasing these chains from etrailer. First their web page was easy to navigate. Second the price was great. Then they were delivered as promised and quick. Once they arrived the quality is great and they came in a very nice carry case. Then I actually put them on in less then 5 minutes each and they went on without moving the truck like it says. so easy I couldn't believe it. I drove several times up and down my driveway without any problems with traction, and it was very slippery without them. I don't plan to use them all the time I plan to use them when I plow my driveway next year but just wanted to get prepared for next year. I put them over all season tires so I saved from getting snow tires for plowing. Great Job Team etrailer !!!

the tire chains worked awesome. I have a home plow on my ford escape and all season tires. without the chains I could have never plowed, went through over one foot of snow without any problem. they are real easy to put on and worked better then my expectations. I did have to purchase new rubber tensioners because I coated the chains and rubber tensioners with dc 10 which made the rubber break down , that was my fault. looking forward to next winter, only to plow instead of snowblow.thanks

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These chains are by far the easiest chains I have ever put on or taken off a truck 10 minutes to put on and five minutes to take off. I am in a wheelchair so getting on the ground is not the easiest thing to do so with these chains taking so little time to put on it is a blessing. No Jack and no running them over to put them on. You may have to drive over them to take them off. Used one set last winter to plow a 6 1/2 mike gravel road and did awesome so I bought a set for the front.

Still running strong. due to my own fault I had to replace 2 links as I spun my tires on bare frozen gravel road . But they are still a amazing chain

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Great product for our 2007 Honda Fit Sport. They fit perfectly. Instructions are very clear and with a little practice we were both able to get these on in 5-10 minutes. We have a cabin in Northern MN with a killer hill that is hard to navigate in winter. With the chains we were able to zip right up without any problems.

Still working great and showing no wear and tear. We used them 12+ times over the past year and they saved us many a time.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Excellent quality, the video instructions helped me fit them in about 10 minutes per axle. Next time will be faster. The storage case is very good. Looking forward to driving in the snow. I drove around for 1/2 mile with no rubbing on a 2020 Sierra 2500HD with LT275/65R20 Goodyears.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These are the first chains I have bought for a car. Bought them in preparation for a trip to Canada this winter and to have just in case this winter around Kansas City. I was worried about how difficult chains would be to install on a Dodge Dart but these were super easy to install, 5 min per tire my first time putting them on. They fit tightly and I can’t wait to try them out in the snow. Customer service was also great with my order. They were delivered several days before they were suposed to and sent me a personal email letting me know they were shipped out early. This was a great touch considering most online orders involve no personal contact from the business. I Will definitely purchase from etrailer again because of the service.

I’ve used them a couple times. Easy to install on the side of the road when needed! Still in great shape. I keep them in my vehicle in the winter.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Received the chains today, and being a little OCD thought I'd put one on a tire in the driveway ( I would rather learn on a non-snow environment than when I have to deal with snow). It isn't as easy as the video shows but I think with experience (which I hope I don't get) it will likely be as simple as the video shows. This is based on installation. I've used chains on a truck before and these were pretty easy to install compared to others.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

As a single Mom I looked a while for chains I felt comfortable installing on my own with my teenage daughter on the hill snowing. I loved all the reviews and installation videos. etrailer.com made it so easy to find what I was looking for and the confidence to purchase. I put these on my car in the driveway today just following the instruction guide that came with my chains and my memory of the video when I purchased....amazing! Easy. Thank you so much! I also love the high quality bag the chains come in to take care of them for years to come. Great price as well. Excellent purchase! Here's hoping next year will be better than all the rain we've had this year and couldn't use! We want to ski! Let us out COVID-19!!!!!

  • Snow Tire Chains for a 2010 Toyota Prius with 195/60-15 Tires
    There are several tire chain options for a 195/60-15 tire size. The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if there are any special requirements for using chains on your 2010 Toyota Prius. Next you want to consider how much you are going to be using chains. For infrequent use or just to have some in the vehicle where legally required I recommend a set of cable type chains such as # PW1030 with rubber adjusters # PW100. I have included...

It looks like you provided both the section width "185" and wheel diameter "14" but not the aspect ratio. I would need this to recommend a fit if the above is not correct.

    The tire sizes you listed are essentially the same. The R in your tire size just means that it has a radial construction. The V-bar chains part # TC1840 that you mentioned do fit your tire size and would do an excellent job in heavy snow and ice. If you needed something that offered a bit better fender well clearance you would want the Titan chains part # TC1530 which also fit. These will install a bit quicker as well and are priced great.
