V-Bar Icebreakers


V-Bar Icebreakers

The V-shaped studs (also known as icebreakers, spikes, or cleats) that are built into these twist-link tire chains bite into ice, providing superior grip for a safer ride on ice-covered roads.


Installation

1. Drape the chain over the tire, making sure that the V-bars are facing out.

2. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

3. Fasten the ends of the chain together.

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


You can use rubber 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 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

Video Transcript for Titan Chain V-Bar Snow Tire Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Titan Chain snow tire chains with the V bar links. These chains come in a number of sizes for a wide variety of applications. Our low carbon steel chains go across our tire horizontally. This provides excellent traction and also grip and braking. These are an SAE Class U chain, so you'll want to use them with vehicles that have no restriction around the wheel well area. They're meant for highway or off road use and it's recommended to use a rubber adjuster to help keep that tension. This one is part number TC0A3.

These Titan chains have a nice V bar pattern. What they've done is taken their standard twist links and they've added on a small angled piece of metal there, that really helps to grip that snow, give you superior traction in both snow and ice. We're here at the passenger side of the vehicle. We've got our chain all laid out. This is just to ensure that we don't have any kinks, any tangles, any twisted things that we're going to have to deal with. We're working tire size 27555R20 and again, these tire chains are made in a wide variety of sizes, so lots of different applications for them.

We'll want to just place the chain up and over our tire. It's important to keep the hook side facing outward. As you can see, we've got a nice smooth back here, and then more of a blunt surface here on the front. We don't want that to be rubbing up against the sidewall, so we'll keep that smooth edge facing in. We want to just work the chain kind of down in front of the tire here in the front. We're just going to roll it forward on it.

We want to make sure you got all the slack you can have right there. We now just want to roll our vehicle forward and we just kind of work our chain over the top of the tire here, kind of get it centered up. Any slack that you might have here in the front, you want to pull towards the back. That's where we're going to be connecting it. All right, come around here to the rear and hook our tag end up there on the larger hook. We'll pull our slack around to the front side here and get it connected as well.

It's important to note which link you use in the rear. We used our second there and we've got a plus or minus one variable, so we can use the third, the second or the first here. It looks like we may be able to get it into the second one there. You want to get it of course, as tight as you can but you also want to be able to function it and operate it, to make it safe. In my case, we just can't get it to go to that second one, so we'll use our first one, connect that in. You bring that catch right down over top of it there, that's going to hold it in place and keep it from backing out. Then we'll bring in our rubber tensioner. You just connect it in to five points around the outside of the tire here. You want to get it as equal as you can, spacing wise, but you certainly don't have to count links or do anything like that. The hooks on this should be facing outward as well, just like on the tire chain itself. You don't want that to be rubbing into your tire, causing any trouble. Just drive a few car lengths forward, make sure we don't have any slack that we need to work out of there, and re-tighten. That will complete today's look at the Titan Chain heavy duty alloy snow tire chains with square links, designed for tires sizes from 15 inches all the way up to 22 inches and offers a thirty mile an hour maximum speed rating. That will complete today's look at the Titan Chain snow tire chains, with the V bar link. .

Great product- easy to put on and helps with icy drive.

2017 Toyota Yaris iA

Wasn’t sure if these v-bar chains would fit Yaris IA. App said not a “fit” but my winter tires are on 15” rims (stock = 16”). Couldn’t get aggressive winter tires for 16” in 2018. Had steel rims from a previous 2012 Yaris. Matched up the circumstances & success. These chains fit the 15” rims & tires just fine. Not a lot of room to spare. Put them thru a test run B-4 an actual “need” situation. Really like the Star Design tensioners.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I’m impressed. These tire chains are the real deal. I looked at various options online, Amazon, etc. I found etrailer. First, the web page is packed with info, tutorials, etc. once I ordered there was continuous communication. I downgraded from a 4x4 to a 4x2, and drive up to Buffalo, NY, from coastal Carolina. These chains are impressive and will provide traction and ease of mind going through the snow belt areas along Lake Erie and parts of the blue ridge mountains. I’ve hit heavy snow on this trip and wished I had a good tire chain. This resolved it. Installing is a breeze be sure to get the tire chain adjusters with them! Excellent service!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I am impressed with the Titan Snow Tire Chains I purchased recently. They appear to be well made and sturdy. They fit my tires and were easy to install. The V-Bar links allow me to drive into the woods with the confidence that I will be able to return home safely.


Comments
Its been almost two years, and I still like the chains. Ive driven into the snowy woods a few times this winter and got home with no problem.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Great chains! Killer grip. They go on quickly and I learned which links to select to put on once and go without readjustment. They didn't keep me unstuck during that one storm last March where we had 4' of wet stuff, but I'm still learning how to deal with that much snow (or maybe I should just wait to use a skid). I'm driving an F350 with LT275/70r18 tires and can (usually) push whatever I want, including uphill 15% grade.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Have not had to use these chains yet, but I did a practice run of hooking them up. They fit nicely and it was not too hard to install them.


Comments
Had to use them on a hill on the property. Went on okay, turned the Ram 3500 into a tank.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


After spending one day of my snowmobile trip digging out my 2008 F-250, I decided to buy chains to get through a mile of unplowed road to our cabin. I bought the TC3831 with V-bar links and chain adjusters TCMA2s so I could tackle the deep snow with ice underneath. The chains were easy to put on and worked excellent on an unimproved road. The heavy 7mm links did a great job of traction and control. I would recommend to anyone that needs to get a truck and trailer to their snowmobile destination. One recommendation is to check your chain tension after spinning the tires.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains fit well and are working great on our Kubota X1120D that we plow snow with. We plow on a 12% grade that gets icy so chains are necessary. The drive is sand and gravel so aggressive chains are fine. Our snow is usually wet and heavy. I would buy these again. etrailer was very helpful with this purchase as it seems this type of chains are hard to come by so the worked to find a supplier that could provide.


Comments
A year later and still working great - 6 inches of wet, heavy snow to plow - no problems with traction with these chains on the Kubota.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


All items arrived in good condition in five days on Colorado mountain area, and were easy to install. The products all appear to be of good quality and should perform as expected when used. for 2017 Ram 2500, no enough clearance on rear tires, but no problem on Front tires clearance. Recommend the V-bar links and chain tighteners used on off-road snow and ice, 4 wheels drive, front ties for 2017 Ram 2500

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains are well built. My 1 ton truck was in 6” deep snow when I chained up. The truck was able to tractor right up A steep hill. The binder is stout steel, not a stamped piece prone to bending. I used rubber tensioners. The combo worked great. All of my use has been off pavement this far. I bought two sets and would do it again.



by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


My spare tire is mounted on a Roadmaster tire carrier (from etrailer) which attaches to the trailer hitch; excellent piece of hardware. That made trial fitting easy. BTW, my '85 F-250 Ford now has a 38 gallon gas tank where the spare tire used to be.

I mark with red paint the outside of the chain to make it easier to see to install. The chains did not come with tie backs so I made some from stainless steel wire. The spring steel tensioners are superior in my opinion to the rubber ones, especially in freezing weather.

Even though the truck is 4x4 with snow tires the law in my state and elsewhere mandates carrying tire chains anyway.

Here is a big tip: when using chains try to drive on the snow, ice or gravel so that wear and tear on the chains is less...and stay under 30 mph.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains make a huge difference. I feel confident on out snowy roads in Northern Idaho. I did break off one cross chain when really pushing them, but otherwise they provide great traction and I'm considering another set for the front tires.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Work great. Easy to put on. Great in the mountains with snow and ice on forest service roads. I put them on a 2019 Dodge Ram Rebel.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Tire chains are exactly as described. Fast shipping.. got them today and put them on my 285/65 r18 tires.. perfect fit. Tried them out in the snow in the backyard, went through almost 8 inches with no problem in 2 wheel drive... cant wait to get out on the frozen lake and put them to the real test on the ice.



by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Great quality chains at a great price!
I
had to get another set of chains for larger tires, this price was comparable to the price I paid for the 17" tires.
I have gone through a foot of snow and over thickly covered icy mountain roads with no slipping. I highly recommend the "V" chains for any icy conditions.

I'm good to go, just waiting for the snow!



by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Chains carried 30day warranty. They broke any few weeks after their warranty expired and didn’t even last a full season. Do not invest your money into these poorly designed chains- too weak for heavy duty trucks. I’m very disappointed and glad they didn’t break anything else like break lines or something.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Amazingly fast shipping! The tracking the company has set up is probably the best there is. I have to keep etrailer in mind and stay away from [another website]...found these chains for the best price here on etrailer!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Tires chains: why did i wait so long? etrailer.com was easy to deal with as usual. My only complaint is that i had to go to another vendor to buy plastic ramps to ease installation. My neighbor has a pair and they are perfect.
I own a second home on a hill in the snow belt of Pennsylvania. After years of plowing, melting snow and ice, sliding off the driveway more times that i can count i stopped plowing the hill and put chains on the four wheel drive parked at the bottom of the driveway. The snow piles up and and truck goes up and down like it is on a dry road. I didn't use the low range once all winter.

After a couple of tries the chains are a breeze to mount. No good for dry roads but magic on snow and ice. Worth twice the price.


Comments
I should have bought these 20 years ago. I haven’t had to mount chains on the front yet! Saved me 5x the price not plowing the road

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


My tire size is not printed on the chain container so I had to search the internet and Titan's product catalog to verify they are the correct size. The chains are the correct size. The container should include my tire size.

Tire chains I have purchased in the past have always included a container suitable for storing them when they are not in use. This set came in a light duty plastic bag, inside a fabric bag. The plastic is likely to fail after the first use of the chains. The fabric bag is a light material which I don't expect to last. The fabric bag also does not include any means of keeping it closed. When I place the chains in the bed of my truck, I anticipate that the chains will spill out of the bag at the first turn I make. Very poor packaging.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


They keep me on the road as much as is reasonable to expect. They are grippier that other chains I’ve used, but also seem to be more finicky to tighten and tore up my mud guards with the v-bars. Using them on a 98 rav4, 2wd. I would probably get something different for my specific vehicle if I had to go back, but these really do grab the road when you need it!

Great product works as described. Keeps us going in the snow back country roads Utah.

Shipping is slower than expected other than that great customer service and love the chains

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Installed one set on rear tires just to be familiar with installation should I ever need them. They fit nicely and are very well made. Tires are 285 70 R18 and they fit snugly with three links dropped.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota Prius with 195/65R15 Tires
