Tire size on sidewall

Video Transcript for Titan Twist Link Tire Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Titan Chains Snow Tire Chains, part number TC2228. These Titan chains are designed for light and heavy duty trucks. It features round twist links to form cross chains, so it's going to provide you with excellent traction and limited jarring. It also features a ladder pattern, so it's going to be great for starts and stops. The links themselves are 5.5 millimeters thick, and they're designed to fit wheels between 15 and 22 inches. See etrailer.com for your exact tire size. They're made out of a low carbon steel construction, so they're going to be strong and durable. It has a maximum speed rating of 30 mph, and they come in a quantity of 2.

Let's go ahead and show you how easy they are to install. To being our test fit, I've gone ahead and laid the chain out. It's a good idea to make sure there's not twist, kinks, or any tangles in it. You also want to be sure that the hooks here, the open side is facing up. Our tire is going to be on the opposite side here, and one last thing, the lever needs to be on the outside of our tire. Now, let's go ahead and drape our chain over our tire. Now, we want to be sure that it's even on both sides, so we can take our hand here, feel around to the back side and make sure that it's even.

Then, we can finish draping our chain around our tire and connect the back first. On the back side of the tire here, what we want to do is take our hook here and our excess links here and hook them together. Now, we don't want to hook too many together because then we won't be able to connect the front side evenly. Looks like we can actually go with the fourth link here. Now, let's do the other side. Here on the front, we're going to do the same thing, only this time, we've got a lever that's going to allow us to tighten up and then hook it into the keeper here. Put it into the notch there, and then bring it back and put it on the keeper.

Now, we can repeat the same process for the other side. Once you get both sides done, the manufacturer does recommend using a rubber adjuster, and this is just going to help keep the chain tight around our tire while we're on the road. You can pick up 2 with part number TCMA2. To install them, be sure that the hook is facing away from our tire. We'll hook the top. Then, we'll go directly across, and then just work our way around.

Now, it is a good idea to drive a short distance, stop, get out, see if you need to make any adjustments or connect more links. That's going to complete our look at the Titan Snow Tire Chains, part number TC2228.

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. 284956

Did not fit 275/60R20 as listed on the internet website. The outside chain required two extra chain links to secure the chains. The chains appeared very durable and worked on a short test run tearing up the grass in my yard. 561586

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. 607069

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. 745167

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. 735351

Review from a similar Titan Chain Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains

Great product at a great price! I put them on during a winter storm this year and had absolutely no problem driving in some very bad roads. It was something else seeing 4×4 trucks stuck while I was driving by them no problem. 601560

This product has helped me through some tough weather. I have a 2 wheel drive that o drive past 4 wheel drive trucks with when I have these on in storms. It helps 1000 in bad weather.

Review from a similar Titan Chain Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains

I have not actually had the opportunity to put on and use my new snow chains yet. But, I am happy with the shipping process, although they had arrived one day later than the date that was suggested by UPS. I'm sure that my snow chains will work just fine when I need to use them for the first time. No ice on our local area roads right now... 334322

Review from a similar Titan Chain Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains

Great product and even better customer service. I was extremely impressed by the service and fast delivery. The tire chains fit perfectly as stated for my tire size. The cams work great and came with the tool. I really like the weight of these chain and quality. These chain will live in my truck for the winter as a precaution as I do a lot of winter mountain driving and sometimes venture up old logging roads to get further into the backcountry. Hope I don’t have to use them but if I do I know I have a quality product on hand! 587647

    If you are just looking for a pair of cost-effective tire chains for your 275/60-20 size tires then I recommend using the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC2228. These chains use twist links in a ladder pattern which will get the job done and meet law requirements as they are rated for on and off road applications.

    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...
