Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if they might affect your ABS/EPS functionality, consult your owner's manual.


These Titan Chain ladder-pattern chains are great winter weather chains for your truck. The rounded twist links provide traction in deep snow - and some traction on ice - and they give you a smoother ride than traditional square links. If you're more likely to see seriously icy conditions where you live, you may instead want a chain with square or V-bar links that can really bite into the ice for more traction.


Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer. You'll also need to know how much clearance is in your wheel well, which you can determine by measuring from your tire tread to the sidewall of the wheel well.


We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.


You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. These chains can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.


Installing Snow Chains

Installing these chains is simple.


Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks.


Drape chains over tire.

2. Drape the chains over your tires, making sure that the prongs attaching the cross chains to the side chains face away from your sidewalls.


Connect the chain behind the tire

3. On the back of the tire, pull the chain tight and hook the ends together.


Hook chain in front and secure with lever

4. Repeat this on the side chain on the front of the tire, then clamp the lever to fasten extra chain links and keep them from flapping as you drive.


Attach optional tensioners

5. Drive forward 2-3 vehicle lengths and recheck the chain tension. Rubber adjusters (sold separately) can be used to help give you a tight fit. Make sure the hooks on the adjusters face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.


Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

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.


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

2021 Ram 1500

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!

Great service. Very fast delivery. Also bought a trailer hitch recently also had excellent service.



by:

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.



by:

used them once last year. most likely drove on them to long. one of the chains broke. Have not need them for this year yet.

Quality products that etrailer stands behind, fast delivery and the best customer service out there. These chains work excellent in snow, slush & ice on my F150. 4 chains make a huge difference over just 2, for getting through the nasty stuff without getting stuck. Well worth the investment, and nice storage bag.

My order of tire chains came quickly and the quality is good. Thank you,

Wonderful to have the chains. Easy to put on and off. I’ve lived in a heavy snow area. 2 to 4 feet. They get lots of use.



by:

Good quality product. Received shipping updates from the company and the chains arrived quickly.



by:

I’m giving this 4 stars because was not able to used them and the roads were clear from the snow. They did fit well and was easy when I practiced putting them on. As for the company, the customer service is great and if you do need chains this is the place to order from. Thanks!!



by:

Outstanding service - I called and asked to have part of the order shipped early since I was leaving on a trip and needed snow chains, they shipped the chains the next day. I will certainly use this site for any future purchases.

Thanks a lot man

Great chains perfect fit on my 2018 f-150. Super fast delivery . Just a dry fit to make sure before hunting season.



by:

Fantastic customer service. Ordered on a Friday afternoon, received by Tuesday, left to a snowy camp on Thursday. Chains did not list my tire size on the bag but included them on the website. Tried the sizing before I left home and they fit perfectly. Received almost 2 feet of snow and chained the fronts and backs in order to pull a 30' trailer up a nasty forest road. Chains were easy to put on and worked like a dream. Totally recommended, especially for the price.

Product arrived as promised. Titan chains are just what we needed. We won't be using these until October/November here in the high country so a little too early to provide a review on the quality.

I bought tire chains for the new Chevy truck that I just bought. I purchased the chains for piece of mind, just in case I ever needed to continue down the muddy/snowy road. To this date, I have only installed the chains once. While in the garage to make sure they fit.

Had a problem with order contacted e-trailer. The problem was fixed that easy. Labels for return worked perfect. Thank you all for your quick response.



by:

Product is exactly as advertised and customer support is the best!



by:

They give me awesome traction grip ice better than I would have expected. My 4 wheel drive went out on my truck while I was out ice fishing and I had the chains with and I walked right out of my predicament in 2 wheel drive with the chains on when I feel I would have struggled in 4 wheel drive with no chains.



by:
2020 Chevrolet Colorado

These are really good-quality chains. I dinged them one star because I ended up cutting three links (could have cut four) off both the inside and outside. With the TCMA2 rubber adjusters (that I also purchased) the chains seem reasonably snug and should work fine, but they could be a little smaller for my 255 65 17 tires.

2015 Ford Expedition

Put them on to check fit, they fit grea t!!!!!



by:

When I need them, these chains work great. Easy to get on and off and provide excellent traction. I also found E trailer to provide great service, placing, receiving the order and following up to be sure product meets expectations.

5 stars for price and service. Very rapid order processing and delivery. Correct product delivered in a very timely manner. I would advise anyone in the market for the products that this company carries to seriously consider purchasing from etrailer.com

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 245/70-19.5 Tires on a 2012 Ford F-250
    The tire chains that I recommend using for the 245/70-19.5 tires on your 2012 Ford F-250 are the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cams # TC2228CAM because they are fairly easy to install and feature twist links for great traction. Since clearance is likely the issue and why Ford doesn't recommend using them with the larger wheels you may consider using cables instead as they tend to have a lower clearance.

    The use of chains on your 2018 Ford F-150 with 275/55-20 tires is slightly complicated. The tire size isn't one that requires special chains approved by Ford, but Ford does give you some parameters. The Class S parameter is recommended by all manufacturers now days because everyone is concerned about liability based on more limited clearances from the inside sidewall of the tire to the vehicle itself. These margins are shrinking over the years which makes the manufacturer want to pass...

    We have a few great options for the tire size of 265/60R18 for tire chains. If you plan to be in ice you will want a V-bar setup like the part # TC2828CAM as the V-bars do a great job breaking up the ice. If you are wanting a smoother ride quality the twist link part # TC2228CAM is the correct chain to use. For deep snow the square link part # TC2228SCAM would be best.

  • What is the Chain Thickness for Titan Tire Chains # TC2228SCAM
    On Titan tire chains # TC2228SCAM you are looking at chain links that are approximately 0.19 to 0.25 inches thick so less than a 1/4 of an inch. The chains are made of manganese nickel alloy so they are very durable and the square links offer the best traction. It looks like your 2012 Ram 2500 has 5 possible stock tire options. To determine if these chains will fit I will need to know the tire size.
