Video Transcript for Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cams Installation - 2018 Toyota Tacoma

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota Tacoma we're gonna be test-fitting the Titan chain snow tire chains, part number TC2221. These chains are designed for those deep snow situations. The twist lengths will give you excellent traction in deep snow and adequate traction on ice. It does have a ladder pattern design to it, which is gonna help out with effective starts and stops, and also with the twist links that's gonna limit the jarring while you're driving. Now comparing this to the square link design with other tire chains, those will actually wear more evenly over time and still provide the stability that you're needing with both snow and ice as well.Going behind the tire you can also see it's not gonna interfere with any of the cables or mechanisms on the inside. In fact there's plenty of space in between that and the suspension.

This comes in a quantity of two, has a maximum speed rating of 30 miles per hour when you're using them, and also comes with a convenient carrying bag, so once you take the chains off and have them dried off, you can place them in the back part of your truck and they're ready for next time.Today we're working with tire size 245-75-R16. We went ahead and laid the chain out in front of the tire like you see here to make sure there's no kinks in the lines before we make our install, and we also like to recommend that you wear gloves while you install these. Next we'll take our chain, we'll drape it around our tire as evenly as possible, and now we can go to the inside of the tire and make our first connection.Next we'll take our hook end here and connect it to our link like so, then go back to the front of the tire and make our connection there. We'll take our link end, put our hook through that, bend it back, and that's not quite enough tension that we want, so we'll just go to the next link, and there we go. And next we'll grab a rubber tensioner, which is sold separately, and attach that.All right, we'll be using part number TCMA2 today for our rubber tensioner.

You can find this on etrailer.com. And we'll just go around, and as we do this you'll see it's taking out the tension. And at this point what I'll do is drive a brief distance, double check and make sure the tension's working properly, and then you're gonna be good to go.There you have it for the Titan chain snow tire chains on the 2018 Toyota Tacoma.

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.

Fairly easy to install on the driveway. I hope it’s as easy in the wild. The videos on installing them are excellent.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I've had very positive experience with this company. Last winter I ordered cable-chains from another provider. They weren't up to the task I needed and one set broke pretty quickly. I then ordered a single set (two tires) of chains from etailer to replace the cable-chain that snapped. The purchasing process was seamless, they arrived quickly and they were of very high quality. They took me through the rest of a challenging winter season. With another winter now approaching, I just ordered a 2nd set so I can install them on all four tires. I won't bother to try to use the cable-chains. Good company, good product.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Delivered fast, popped these on to get gamiliare with them and actyally tested them out on a road that was snow packed solid ice, my truck would not spin... i tried to make it, but the chains would not allow it in my situation. Yes chains ride rough.. real rough to be honest, but its better than not making it to your destination. They are heavy ( a big pro) feel like excellent quality and would recommend them to anyone who lives in a state that allows them.


Comments
I have only used them twice since i bought these, how ever they have held up great in storage, not a single spot of rust, or anything. They are still in brand new condition

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Good chains, but were a bit too long for my 2017 Lexus GX, so a few links of chain had to be cut with a bolt cutter. Even with the chain cut, there is a little extra length that needs to be tied up so that it isn’t clunking as you drive. I’ve had plenty of experience installing chains (both cable and regular) and these were the most difficult ones I’ve ever put on. Hopefully this gets a bit easier with practice!

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Needed these chains for a snowboarding trio this December. Installed them in my yard to make sure they fit, and figure out which link worked best. Now that i know what link to use, next time it should only take sbout 10 min to put them on. I really like how they stay away from my wheels so should not scrstch them. My yard was very soft from recent rain and you can see how well the chains dig into the mud. Should be really good on snow/ice.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Chains seem to be made top quality. Only test fit them so far with perfect fit on a 35x12.5 r18 tire. Hopefully I dont have to use them but the security of having them and knowing the quality and fit is great is worth it.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I got the chains on just before a big snowfall. I put them on my plow truck. (Silverdo with a 8’ meyers) what a difference. Plowed up and down my ice and snow covered 1/4 mike drive with lots of curves and hills. Couldnt be happier with the chains. It took me 2 hours to install them. Never had chains before. There is a learning curve. I expect it will take me 1/2 hour next time. The cam tensioner wrench is made of really soft steel and broke within 15 minutes. I would recommend spending the money for a better one. They about as much as a beer at a ballgame.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Delivered quickly and the website video was helpful. I practiced putting these on in the driveway, and they’re very simple to install. I may buy a new bag to hold them in though because they’re heavy, probably 40-50 pounds, and the bag they come in is a little iffy.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


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!


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


These tire chains fit my JLG Boom Lift tires, size 25x7-12, perfectly after I removed two cross links. They were longer than I needed, but worked perfectly fine after I made the adjustments, which was very easy to do! The advice provided by Andrew was perfect! Thank you Andrew and etrailer.com. Also, I received the chains 2 days after I ordered them - super fast shipment!!! Great company to deal with. I would buy from them again!

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Chains don't fit on 245/75/17 like the part details claims!! I had to cut 1 cross section and 6 links on the longer ends for them to fit!


Comments
This product fits tire sizes between 15 to 22 inches. Once you fasten the end of the chains together and use the cams to tighten, you drive forward a little bit then keep tightening the cams as needed. They will still fit a little loose but the good news is that you can get chain adjusters like item # TCMA2

Very easy installation (watch the video on the etrailer website) and excellent fit on a 2010 Tundra. I plan to visit Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana in the winter and most routes have a few mountain passes.

I can say that Ive used the chains intermittently and found them to be durable, well-fitting, and most importantly, very easy to install

Bought for my 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. It is now unstoppable. My Vermont private road is too steep to be classified as a town road, and it went up through 6 inches of snow with icy spots without ever flinching.

Great price and fast delivery! I tried one to check the fit on my tires and it was very good. I like the cam tightening system too! I bought them for a planned cross country trip and you'll never know if it will be snowing in the mountains.

Went through a couple different sets before biting the bullet on these babies. Easy install after very little adjustment. The cam option is definitely the way to go.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


The tire chains arrived fast. Easy to put on. Have used them multiple times up in the mountains...deep snow, ice, and muddy slick clay. Excellent traction. It is great to be the truck that isn't sliding all over and getting stuck.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I have an ‘07 toyota camry tire size 215/60/16 and was able to install the chains on both of the drive tires in less than 7 mins by myself. I could've bought snow cables but based on my research, the camry is not low profile, plus the snow chains have more “bite” traction vs the cables! Etrailer is my go to place for auto accessories!!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Id give a 10 star, but 5 star was the max, extremely pleased with my experience with the purchase.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 235/80R17 Tires on a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
    The chains that I recommend for the 235/80R17 tires on your 2008 Dodge Ram are the Titan Chain twist link snow tire chains part # TC4221 for your dually tires and part # TC2221 for your front tires. These are rated for both on and off road use and they will give you great traction with deep snow without compromising your ride quality too much. These are adequate for ice so if you think you will end up driving on ice you need the square links # TC2524 for your front chains instead. Please...

    According to Titan Chain, the # TC2221CAM are not designed for off-road use due to the composition of the steel used to manufacture the chain links.

For better snow and ice traction for on or off road, the V-bar links used on # TC2821 will really bite into the ice and provide great traction.
