Installation

Installation Step 1

1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.


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

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

I have had these chains before on a front wheel drive Honda Accord (front and rear) and that car went everywhere. These will go on an AWD Subaru that is already pretty good in the snow. Now I can go anywhere I need to with confidence.

Good service, carry chains for my car trailer, easy to install.

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!!!!!

I ordered the Titan Alloy Snow Chains- Diamond Pattern for a 215/60R16 tire. The case listed a dozen or more tire sizes these chains should fit. One of the sizes listed was for the 215/60R16. I know that chains are not custom made for just one size. However it wasn't even close. These were way to big. I had to remove several links on both chains in order for the tightening mechanism to work. Normally I would have sent them back, but I need them for the next few days. I expected a better out-of-the-box fit for that price. Will see how they work in the snow.

Roger R. was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I can't thank him enough for his help in determining the type of chains and accessories I will need to have with me for my trips through the Rockies. I will refer friends and family to your company. His customer service gets an A++!

We drive 3/4 ton trucks and live in a rural area where the roads are not paved and winter can be vicious. These chains worked and were easy on and easy off...they also still look brand new after a nasty winter in the Sierra Mountains of N. NV. Couldn't be happier.




by:

Amazing customer service! The product came much faster than expected because etrailer upgraded my shipping speed to 3-5 days compared to their 5-7day shipping at no extra cost! I’m happy with my new set of chains and will definitely shop here more often. Absolutely recommend!!!




by:

I needed chains for three vehicles. I've used these chains in the past and knew they were the ones I wanted. They are easy to put on and provide great traction. I ordered them from etrailer because etrailer had the best price, but I was very impressed with etrailer's service, particularly their proactive communication.




by:

The chains are very easy to put on - my 14 year-old-son put them on by himself.
We had a less than typical use for them - they were put on the wheels of a grain auger so that it could be moved around the farm in the winter, and the chains provided truly excellent traction.




by:

Great set of chains. I used them on my fifth wheel and they were great.




by:

Product came with a nice carrying case and instructions were very simple. Customer service is excellent, they even shipped it sooner than expected. Can't say I want to use the chains...but if I do, I am sure I will be fine since I am prepared.

Great product and amazing price with quick delivery! Over satisfied.. yeah, that’s me

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


These chains were amazing! I was a bit hesitant to go with chains over cables due to the car's manual saying to use cables, but after talking to Bob at etrailer, and watching the install videos, I went with them (on all four tires) and am glad I did! We went up to Yosemite for the New Year, and it snowed the day we drove in. We got through the gate into the park without needing chains, but once inside, the roads started to get covered, and though we have AWD, we don't have snow tires and the chains seemed like the best option. We pulled over and had the chains on all four tires within about 20 minutes. The car ran like a tank through the snow (and later, ice-covered roads) and I'm really happy we went with the chains rather than cables. After putting on the chains, we drove about 100 yards to check and tighten them. They were actually pretty tight - only had to tighten one. They really really came in handy driving through the Yosemite Valley, and the email responses I got from Bob prior to buying these showed me great customer service. The shipping speed was top notch as well, and overall, I'm happy that we went with etrailer to get these chains for our snow-covered trip to Yosemite.


Comments
After a year of owning these chains, still couldnt be happier. Weve moved from CA to the east coast and though we havent yet had the need to put the chains on, we keep them in the car just in case. Having the peace of mind that I can stop and put them on quickly if needed makes me happy, and I still am very glad that I was able to get these from eTrailer with guidance from Bob

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


They seem like good chains, but they don't seem to fit my 2021 Toyota Sienna AWD tires like it said they should (235/65/17). The tensioner chain is too short for me to pull tension on adjacent yellow chains and I am worried this will negatively impact the chains stability on my tires. I can barely get the rubber tensioner through the first red ring after pulling and readjusting several times. This is my first time using snow tire chains... Would someone with experience be able to let me know if this is OK or if I should buy some different chains?


Comments
I wanted to let you know that I had also reached out to the manufacturer about the tire chains. They advised that the installation looked good to them and the way the chain set up is fine. If you have to use them then it is possible, they will loosen up with use.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Chain tire set was received several days before the date indicated in the order. My tire size 275/65-20 was not listed on the label of the TC2335 chain set received, even though it was indicated to be good for my tire size by Etrailer. I test fitted the chains in accordance with the etrailer video and it fit just fine as you can see in the attached photo. These chains should do well for our National Park trip in a few months.


Comments
Often the tire chain bags will not list every size that they will fit. Many will have a long list of sizes.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


I have no previous experience with vehicle tire chains. I ordered and received these Titan chains from etrailer in a very timely manner. The only reason for my 4 of 5 stars is that I have yet to use them. I took pictures after installing on a rear tire of my 2006 GMC Sierra 1500. LT 265/70-17. These Titan chains seem to fit very well. Etrailer's installation video helped make my 1st attempt easy and successful. Thank you etrailer!

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Great service, tracking, and follow up. Chains showed up a day early too. I ordered the Diamond chains for 265/70R17 KO'2 tires. Fit good, easy to install. Note in image that I put my tires up on blocks to install. This works quite nicely, especially with the edge lugs on the tires to get things lined up and properly fit. Much easier, cleaner, and warmer to fit chains in the garage or driveway before crawling around on ice, snow, and slush with cold hands etc...

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Jessica was very helpful selecting which chains to purchase. They fit well, the price was very competitive and arrived quickly. I had to deliver some material to a mountain location and needed to go down a couple of steep inclines. I put chains on all four tires of my truck and one axle on the trailer. I didn't have any slipping or sliding on an icy snow-packed road.

Chains are easy to install and worked well. Removal took a little longer than installation but now I have some practice.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Waited a year to write this review. These chains are amazing!!!! I have a 2WD truck and love my winter sports (I know I know). Anyways, just got back from a week in Mammoth Lakes CA, Mammoth is currently experiencing some of the most snow for the season that they've had for awhile. These chains stayed on my truck for all 5 days there. Through powder, packed snow, ice, etc. These chains DELIVERED!!!!!!!! I am so happy with them that my friends who have 4wd that were on the trip asked about them and are ordering the same ones for their trucks as well! I couldn't be more happy with the purchase.

See what our Experts say about this Titan Chain Tire Chains

  • Which Tires Should Snow Chains Be Installed On
    When using chains they should at least go on the main drive wheels of the vehicle. You can put chains on the other, non-drive wheel tires for greater traction, turning, and braking. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have included some links covering tire chains for you as well. If you could tell me the vehicle and tire size I can make some recommendations.

  • What is the Driving Speed Limit When Using Tire Chains
    Any vehicle that uses any brand and type of tire chain should be operated at reduced speeds. If road conditions merit use of chains then they also merit reduced driving speeds, typically 30-mph for most vehicles and most chains. The two linked articles on tire chains will give you plenty of good information as a starting point. Before choosing any tire chains for use on your Mini Cooper, you'll want to refer to your vehicle owner's manual. Many passenger vehicles require special low-profile...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used On Trailer Tires?
    Some states do require tire chains on trailers especially for braked axles. They're commonly called drag chains in this application. As long as you have the internal clearance needed for the chains, you can use them on trailer tires. The Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern # TC1545 are my recommendation for your 205/75R15 tires. They are high-quality manganese nickel alloy steel and the color-coding makes installation easy. These chains require 15mm of internal clearance...

    For your tire size of 205/75-15 the correct Titan tire chain you'd want is the part # TC1545. The # TC1540 wouldn't fit properly as it is designed for a smaller tire diameter.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta TDI with 205/65R16
    For an emergency set of snow chains the # PW1038 that you referenced would be a great choice for you to help in a bind as these will fit rims that are from 15-18 inches in diameter. A better option if you plan to drive in snowy conditions would be a full set of chains like the # TC1545 that has been confirmed to fit your tire size. The emergency chains will help you if you get stuck but won't help you much once you get moving. The # TC1545 will help you navigate the snow much better as...

    I have a couple options for tire chains for your 2016 Polaris Ranger UTV. It depends on what situation you want them for. My personal favorite is the Titan Chain Alloy Tire Chain # TC1545 with its diamond pattern and relatively easy to install design. The diamond pattern has more tire coverage than your traditional ladder style chains, so it is great with maneuvers like sharp turns or quick stops.
