  • Quantity: 2 tire chains
  • 30-Day limited warranty


Installation

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

2. Fasten the ends of the chain together.

3. Use the cam tensioning devices that are built into the side chain to tighten. Do this by inserting the flat end of the included wrench into the slot on each cam and twisting it.

4. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed.


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 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 used it 1 time for roughly 15 miles on I70 in Colorado when required by law and found I had several links broken. I called etrailer about this and they said there was nothing they could do because they sat in my toolbox to long and were out of any warranty timeline.


Comments
These chains do have a 30-day limited warranty time frame. Breakage can happen with the chains if they hit bare pavement or if driven over 25 mph while installed. If you hear or feel anything off like a chain hitting your vehicle, for instance, immediately pull over and address the issue. Also avoid sudden starts and stops, which can cause your wheels to spin or lock up.

Fantastic product. I'm extremely happy with thrn.




by:

Bought these for the just in case. I was living in Salt Lake City and was going to test them last winter up. The snow season was so lacking that I never had a chance to test them.




by:

I bought these prior to crossing the mountains last December, anticipating that the pass between Oregon and California would be choked with ice and snow. It never happened and when we did run into severe ice in New Mexico, I survived with 4 wheel drive. I feel though, that the quality of the chains, albeit it, some what heavy, would have workaday advertised.




by:

Great product, great price. I'm using them on my truck for plowing my driveway. Very good grip. Install was easy once I figured out the CAM adjusters.




by:
2010 Volvo Cross Country

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.




by:

These chains are better than I expected. However, I have been satisfied with everything I have bought from etrailer. There customer service is top notch as well!

Successful test installation and removed 3 unnecessary links on each side.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I know iron. 17 yrs trucking, mostly doubles across Montana into the Dakotas. Chained up a lot.
Pictures show what you get with this set I bought for my 2005 Tahoe. Heavy gauge chains w/triple cam locks w/long wrench for excellent leverage to get cams tight. Tight cams mean links don't "slap" pavement which causes increased wear. They arrived today so not used yet. However, for my application they will last a lot longer than those cheaper; light gauge, "disposable" chains, use once and throw away after you pay a tow bill.


Comments
No opportunity to use them yet.

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.

Good chains!

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I used these on a 2wd open diff F150 with a camper. The traction difference is amazing! I never lost traction! If you’re on a pass that warns “chains or AWD”, don’t go without chains or off road tires. I puttered along at 30 in the unplowed lane watching a clown in an AWD BMW slide everywhere in the plowed slush, holding up traffic.
Anyway, the chains themselves. I’ve used diamond pattern chains with a cable on the inside and fancy nonsense on the outside before. The cable always collects snow, and the multiple connections on the outside is confusing. These ladder chains were easy and simple to put on and take off. I used tensioner bungees also. You will get a bumpy ride, but it smooths out as you speed up. Anyone that claims ladder chains don’t have lateral grip hasn’t used them and doesn’t understand the physics of why chains help.
Great for going up a pass periodically, but not something I’d use daily.

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.

All is good so far. Will be going into a 2nd full season with these changes

These chains worked perfectly . Used them on my Tacoma and was able to drive some snow and ice covered non-plowed state forest roads without issue. They were easy to install and remove.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


We had previously purchased chains from etrailer that worked great, but we upsized the wheels/tires of the plow truck and needed larger chains. So we bought these chains and used them to enlarge the four previous chains. The new ones did exactly what we wanted them to do! I have always had great success ordering from etrailer and highly recommend your company. Great service and great value!!

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

They look to be some pretty durable chains. Bummer they didn’t come with the reusable canvas bags, but that’s not really make-it or break it for me. I can find a box at [online] to fit in my truck. Fast shipping time too!

These chains do come with a canvas bag. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

  • Off Road Tire Chains for 1989 Chevy Suburban
    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 on and off road use, the Titan # TC2221 twist link chains would be a better choice. 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. Also recommended are adjusters like # TCOA2 which will keep the chains tightly in place on the tire. The chains...

  • Off-Road Rated Snow Tire Chains Recommendations for a 1999 Ford F-350 Dually
    The Titan Tire Chains, # TC2221CAM, that you have referenced would be a good choice for your 1999 Ford F-350 Dually. The best place to put tire chains is on the main drive wheels. If your truck is 4-wheel drive, the main drive wheels are more than likely the rear wheels. You can still put them on the front as well, but installation on the main drive wheels is where they will be most effective. You should also use the # PW105 rubber tensioners.

  • Should Excess Chain Links be Cut Off of Titan Tire Chains
    Titan recommends removing excessive links from their chains to prevent damage like you mentioned. There wouldn't be a reliable way to clip them out of the way either as there would be a chance it would come undone and beat up your vehicle. We have a tool that's designed to cut off the links with the part # TCRP2S.

  • Troubleshooting Tire Chain Loose Ends or Improper Fit
    The Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cams - Ladder Pattern - Twist Links - 1 Pair # TC2221CAM if being used on the correct tire sizes should not have loose ends. The cam tighteners should remove any slack that would be an issue. Your option is to trim the cross chain links to shorten and then use the Titan Chain Cross Chain Repair Link - 0.25" Thick - Qty 1 # TC250CCRL to replace the removed link(s) and hold the chain together. You likely will need the Titan Chain Repair Pliers for Light...
