Video Transcript for Titan Chain Diamond Alloy Snow Tire Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Titan Diamond Alloy snow tire chains, part number TC1553. This style of tire chain accommodates a wide variety of tire sizes. Please see our website for more details. These tire chains are designed to fit around manufacturer wheel sizes with highway treads. They're made of a strong heavy duty Manganese alloy which is super strong and durable. The small design of the square links is going to help to accommodate vehicles with minimal clearance. They have a rubber tensioner already included with the tire chain so that you won't need a separate rubber tensioner to fully secure the chains to the tire. They are self-tensioning so they will be super snug and tight to your tire without having to get out and make any adjustments. Now this style of tire chain goes around the tire vertically and horizontally, completely covering the tire to give you the most traction possible.

It grips really well in light snow and also in ice. We'll begin our installation by first laying the tire chains flat out on the ground to undo any kinks or tangles. This is going to ensure that the tire chain will fit correctly around our tire. Now we'll go ahead and start with the yellow end of the cable, which will feed back behind the inside of our tire. We'll then bring the two ends together up at the 12:00 position and hook the male and female end of the chain together. This will allow us to drape the tire chain over the tire. After it's centered we'll go ahead, and at the 12:00 position, connect the green hook with the yellow link. We'll still work the tire chain around the tire still making sure that it is centered. With that done, we'll insert the grey chain into the red tensioner and pull it tight. You can see that the chain will fit into the slot of the tensioner which is going to lock in a position. We'll then insert the chain with the rubber tensioner through the two red loops. We'll then pull it tight and secure it at the opposite end of the chain.

This is going to clench all of the sides together. Now that the tire chain is installed, we'll go ahead and head out in the snow and show you how it performs. And with that, that'll complete today's review of the Titan Diamond Alloy snow tire chains part number TC1553. .

Ford F-250 Super Duty

I bought a set for my F250 Super Duty and another set for my Fifth Wheel Trailer. Arrived in good shape and the carry case is awesome, made it very easy for storage when not in use. Followed the install direction and very easy installed without having to drive over them like my older set. Very pleased with this product.

- TC2517

The stiff inner cable and a rubber tensioner makes instalation easy when I practiced putting them on. The carrying case is nice to keep everything ready until use. The chains are made for a few tire sizes, so I only used one of two tensioning loops attached to the chains. Etrailer's shipping was lightning fast and arrived before promised arrival date. Very happy with the transaction and chains. Hope I dont have to use them but glad to have them.

2018 Toyota Highlander

Great product and excellent service. I originally ordered a chain from Konig and chose expedited shipping because I needed them to arrive in time for an upcoming trip to the Sierras. It was on a Sunday afternoon and within an hour I received a call from someone at etrailer letting me know that the product I had ordered was on back order and suggested this Titan model which was in stock (and less expensive!). They shipped the next day and I received them in time. I did use them on my 2018 Highlander on the trip. They installed easily, fit well and the traction was excellent even when driving up hills on local Tahoe roads in a major snowstorm. Highly recommended.

- TC2517

Great product and fantastic service too. I have only tried on the chains and have not driven in them yet but the case and quality of the items were very good and they were very cheap too. After my order they contacted me because the items were still on route to their warehouse and could not be distributed however they kept me in the loop all the way and provided a tracking number too. They came in just over a week so considering that they had a delay on receiving the item at their end and it had to cross east to west coast plus free delivery thrown in I was very impressed with the service I received. Apologies but can't comment on the actual chains as I haven't used them in anger yet however they were really easy to fit without the instructions, takes about a minute and all the different parts are colour coded. The Alloy chains are rust preventative but they feel heavy duty with a good all round pattern for extra forward and leeway grip, not a tacky or cheap feeling product, the case is pretty heavy when packed away so quite happy so far. Hope this helps.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These tire chains work very well on my 2019 Ford F-250. They were very easy to install and remove, provide excellent traction in snow or on ice, and come in a nice carrying case. In addition to the built-in tensioner, I also added a rubber loop-type tension to keep them tight. The only problem I encountered was during the 2021 winter storm in Texas. I think I was the only person in the Austin area with tire chains, and while I was in a grocery store someone stole both chains from my front tires (luckily, they left them on the rear tires). The first picture is when I first installed the chains (before the ice and then snow) - the second picture is after several days of driving in the snow and ice (and after the front chains were stolen).

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

After reviewing tech info and reviews I purchased Titan Alloy Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link part TC2533 for the 2018 Ram 2500. These are regular duty and a good fit. These chains offer a lot more clearance for the P-Brake cable. They are a cleaver design, have great carrying case and are fairly quick to install. I have not purchased winter tires for this vehicle so the Ram need chains to pull a travel trailer up and down our snow-covered road.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Just completed fit-check of these chains on my two vehicles (2016 Toyota Tundra, P255/70R18, Michelin LTX MS2; 2010 Toyota Sequoia, P275/55R20 111S M+S, Bridgestone Dueler H/L) and all is good! Hardest part of installation was untangling the chains to lay out on the ground (that always is, for me!). Practice makes it easier. Thank you etrailer! Rolling a few revolutions and re-tightening chains IS important. Don't leave that step out. I'm going to add rubber tensioners (old-school, I know) just to be sure. Pics are of the 2010 Sequoia and 2016 Tundra.

Ive only had to use them once in the year Ive had them I live in SoCal, after all!. Easy on, easy off. Work good.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Chains fit perfectly and installed in minutes. Rubber chain adjusters are a great accessory. Thanks to Kimberly in customer support for getting the right chains and recommending the adjusters. I'm very happy with the purchase and support from e-trailer and will be purchasing from them again.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

I really like the ease of installation of this style of chain. The diamond pattern is a smoother ride. They have good grip on thick ice. The manufacturer even included repair links and gloves to use if i wanted to dye my hair. I received my order faster than expected and really liked etrailers detailed order tracking.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Wow!! Installed in minutes and fit snug no chain flopping in fender well like other chains. These are half the weight than my other chains and Titans came with nice carry case as well. Thank you to Christina J for all your help and getting these to me just in time to hit the snow [thumbs up]

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

"etrailer" is fast (no surpirse), we use them a lot. These chains ROCK. They go on SO EASY. The grip is KILLER, not just forward thrust, but the back end stays planted in corners (diamond pattern is why). My '96 F-250 throws serious snow and ice roost with these on. They come off just as easy: Unhook, swing the cable out of the way from behind the back of the tire, back up 3", fling them in the case. If you are really tired of floppy ladder chains and latches, trimming links and cable type chains (that just don't work)? GET THESE CHAINS. I've tested them in axle deep snow, thick ice, they didn't break, the truck flat hooks up and goes. These WORK- PERIOD!

Still roosting snow! Use them several times a week in winter. Good stuff. Getting another pair once these wear out.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Im am very very satisfied with purchasing these chains from etrailer. First their web page was easy to navigate. Second the price was great. Then they were delivered as promised and quick. Once they arrived the quality is great and they came in a very nice carry case. Then I actually put them on in less then 5 minutes each and they went on without moving the truck like it says. so easy I couldn't believe it. I drove several times up and down my driveway without any problems with traction, and it was very slippery without them. I don't plan to use them all the time I plan to use them when I plow my driveway next year but just wanted to get prepared for next year. I put them over all season tires so I saved from getting snow tires for plowing. Great Job Team etrailer !!!

the tire chains worked awesome. I have a home plow on my ford escape and all season tires. without the chains I could have never plowed, went through over one foot of snow without any problem. they are real easy to put on and worked better then my expectations. I did have to purchase new rubber tensioners because I coated the chains and rubber tensioners with dc 10 which made the rubber break down , that was my fault. looking forward to next winter, only to plow instead of snowblow.thanks

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Put these on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 20" factory wheels and tires. Fit is great, install is simple and quick. Probably not the chains you would run on a snow plow truck, but will probably be awesome for the occasional user like me. Fortunately I did not get to use them this winter... Yet.

Used the chains twice this winter. They work great, easier than others that I have had to install on the side of the road. Work well on ice, snow, and mud. Got me out of a jam twice. They are worth the money.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These are the first chains I have bought for a car. Bought them in preparation for a trip to Canada this winter and to have just in case this winter around Kansas City. I was worried about how difficult chains would be to install on a Dodge Dart but these were super easy to install, 5 min per tire my first time putting them on. They fit tightly and I can’t wait to try them out in the snow. Customer service was also great with my order. They were delivered several days before they were suposed to and sent me a personal email letting me know they were shipped out early. This was a great touch considering most online orders involve no personal contact from the business. I Will definitely purchase from etrailer again because of the service.

I’ve used them a couple times. Easy to install on the side of the road when needed! Still in great shape. I keep them in my vehicle in the winter.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Great product for our 2007 Honda Fit Sport. They fit perfectly. Instructions are very clear and with a little practice we were both able to get these on in 5-10 minutes. We have a cabin in Northern MN with a killer hill that is hard to navigate in winter. With the chains we were able to zip right up without any problems.

Still working great and showing no wear and tear. We used them 12+ times over the past year and they saved us many a time.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These chains are great and a perfect fit for our two suburbans. I transferred them to the Bucket Boss cable case and the fit in there perfectly with room to spare. This keeps each chain separated and free of entanglement in the original case. I had been using the Z cables but there is a little more work in storing and maintaining. As well, I felt that the cables were more prone to breaking so I am happy to have found these chains to replace them.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

These chains are by far the easiest chains I have ever put on or taken off a truck 10 minutes to put on and five minutes to take off. I am in a wheelchair so getting on the ground is not the easiest thing to do so with these chains taking so little time to put on it is a blessing. No Jack and no running them over to put them on. You may have to drive over them to take them off. Used one set last winter to plow a 6 1/2 mike gravel road and did awesome so I bought a set for the front.

Still running strong. due to my own fault I had to replace 2 links as I spun my tires on bare frozen gravel road . But they are still a amazing chain

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

I woke to an unusual 7- 12 in's. of wet heavy snow... Power out all over and needed to help friends get winter storm supplies, cooking stove propane, water, ice for coolers etc... After going over the Sierra's about a year previously with my son in a different vehicle and having to chain up, I got to see how relatively easy they went on and how they got us over the mountain. I live in the valley so this kind of purchase was something I thought would only come in handy in mountain travel something I usually wouldn't do. I decided to purchase a set of Titan Alloy Snow Tire Chains and adjusters just to be prepared as you never know what’s coming... I'm glad I made the purchase! Maneuvering around in the approx. 8 inches was simple and when I needed to go through deeper piles they got me there without a problem. Grown up in a snow country and having put on traditional chains these were so less complicated to install. Driving below or no more than the recommended speed made drive in a difficult situation easier.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

I bought these snow chains for an up coming ski trip to Colorado during Christmas time. Etrailer was a great resource in trying to decide what type of snow chain to purchase, especially for a South Texan. The video demonstration and previous review is what sold me on the type/brand. I tested them to ensure they fit properly and had them installed in a jiffy. Let's hope I never have to use them!

Great. I ended up needing them to park in the driveway at the place where we stayed. It was a little tough installing them in -9F temperature in the dark. I recommend gloves.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

Excellent quality, the video instructions helped me fit them in about 10 minutes per axle. Next time will be faster. The storage case is very good. Looking forward to driving in the snow. I drove around for 1/2 mile with no rubbing on a 2020 Sierra 2500HD with LT275/65R20 Goodyears.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

I got the chains and tired them on tonight and they seem big. With the tension all the way tight there was still slop in the chain system. It definitely seems like they could tighten more. The instructions show a few inches of available tension when the chains are on plus I had to loop the bungee cord around another section of chain to get any tightness. It just does not seem like the proper fit and may cause issue when in use. Is there a smaller size or another tire chain that would better fit a 275/65R18 tire???

It does not look like the chains are too large for the tire. I recommend Rubber Tire Chain Adjusters par t# TCMA2 to tighten up the fit.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains

As a single Mom I looked a while for chains I felt comfortable installing on my own with my teenage daughter on the hill snowing. I loved all the reviews and installation videos. etrailer.com made it so easy to find what I was looking for and the confidence to purchase. I put these on my car in the driveway today just following the instruction guide that came with my chains and my memory of the video when I purchased....amazing! Easy. Thank you so much! I also love the high quality bag the chains come in to take care of them for years to come. Great price as well. Excellent purchase! Here's hoping next year will be better than all the rain we've had this year and couldn't use! We want to ski! Let us out COVID-19!!!!!
