V-Bar Icebreakers

V-Bar Icebreakers

These chains are outstanding in serious winter weather conditions because the V-bar studs can bust through intense ice and packed snow. So, you'll be able to get to work and back home again even in the toughest weather. You can also use them if you ever go off-roading and end up in a mud-digging situation. These chains are going to help give your vehicle purchase to pull out and keep moving.


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 chain over the tire, ensuring that the V-bar studs face away from the tire.


Make connections

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

4. Insert the included tool into the cam and twist to tighten the sidewall chain. Twist as many cams as it takes to get a tight fit.


Attach optional tensioners

5. Drive forward 2-3 vehicle lengths and recheck the chain tension. Tighten any loose cams. If needed, 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

Video Transcript for Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cams Review

Adam: Hi everyone. Adam, etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Titan chain, snow tyre chains. So this does have a V bar style link, which is going to be the more aggressive style of your snow tyre chains. This is going to wear down a little bit more than some of your square shaped links, but it is going to give you superior traction to all of those. It may be a little rougher ride, but this is definitely going to get you out of those snowy or icy situations.

So this is going to be a ladder-pattern style tyre chain. Also, it is going to be made of a low carbon steel construction. It's going to last a decently long time and resist against rust and corrosion. Whenever you have these on, it's probably going to be soft on the roads. So having a nice, solid metal is definitely going to help it wear away.So, these do come in a pack of two, which have a decently sturdy canvas bag.

So for your all wheel drive and four wheel drive applications, you can just grab two sets on etrailer.com and it's going to be the same exact installation process on all four of your tyres. So the first thing we're going to want to do is lay out our chains and make sure there's no kinks in our links. Also, something to note, we want to make sure that the V-Bar is going to be facing out away from our tyre, and the open end here is going to be facing out as well. Once all that's done, we can try to grab the middle of our chains and drape them over our tyre.We'll make sure we get it nice and even. So now that we're back here, we're going to take our spare links here and our hook.

We're going to find a chain. I want to do the second closest, and then we're going to go around front and complete the connection. So around front, we're going to take our metal portion here, put it through a link and bend it over like so, it connects it to our spare link here. Now we can take our cam tensioner tool, put it into place and rotate this around to get that desired tightness.We don't have to do all of them, but I am going to do two here. We do have about four on this kit.

That should be pretty tight. So these cams did do a pretty good job at getting these chains nice and tight. And I only use two of them. There's two more that I could tighten down if we needed to get a little bit tighter, but if you want that added security and comfort, you can go on etrailer.com and purchase some of these rubber tensioners. And all you really need to do is just have the hooks facing out away from your tyres and then go on a diamond or star-pattern just across from each other to get them installed. That's something that you would like to have with your tyre chains. They don't come with them, but, we do sell them here at etrailer.com. Well, everyone, thanks for tuning in and taking a look at Titan chain, snow tyre chains..

Best tire chains that I ever owned . Easy to put on the tires and they stay put.



by:

I do snow plowing with a 1 ton truck. These Titan Chains allow me to plow deep snow up grades and even when there is a thick layer of ice under the snow. The V grips really dig into the snow, ice and gravel. On paved and cement surfaces they will scar the surface, but under adverse conditions they get the job done!



by:

The chains bite into hard packed snow. Was able to move an 8k trailer that probably would not have been possible otherwise. The connecting link is great. The cam wrench has a little to be desired, a tee style would provide more control for easier tightening. I had to choke these chains up to the tightest link for my stock tires, I wonder if they will be loose as the tires wear. The chains seemed very loose after removing the spider straps. They made the ride very rough at 5mph, these are definitely for off road.



by:

I like the chains very much. Excellent design. Easy to install and with the cam tighteners they didn’t loosen up. I recently delivered lumber on an ice covered dirt road (very steep hill!) and never spun a wheel.



by:

These are the best chains, hands down. I live off grid in an area where people constantly lose their vehicles or get them stuck. I need these half of the year and I've never been stuck, even with multiple feet of snow and ice. For most people I don't think you'll ever need replacement parts but for people like me they're easy to repair, diagnose, tighten etc. It's worth noting that you need some grip strength to tighten the cams, I haven't had issues but if you're a woman I'd recommend the "T" shape cam tightener etrailer sells so you can torque it better. It's important to note that these work great with even super knobby tires, so don't shy away if you need this style of chain.

I can't recommend these enough, if you're a road traveler this is not the product for you but if you're on the farm, using this for a plow truck on an icy dirt road, going up snowy hills, going offroad in the snow, are camping in snowy wilderness etc this is for you. Just make sure you don't spin, because you can easily snap cross bars this way.

etrailer is fantastic, as an aside and has been super helpful.



by:

Nice chains for my plow truck. This truck doesn't go on the road - I only use it as a yard truck. Chains were easy to install. I picked up the Titan multiarm tire chain adjusters for light truck (3/4 ton). Drove with the new set up on. They will work fine - I will not get stuck. The higher profile.of the chain cleats causes the vehicle to rumble as its driven, but I can live with that. As usual, great customer support.



by:

Ok, new to chains here. These came extremely fast over the Christmas holiday. I have a cabin in north central PA on top of a mountain. Two weeks ago I came up the mountain and it had snowed during my stay. It was absolutely terrifying going back down the dirt road, I had zero traction, took me an hour to go 2 miles, a neighbor had plowed, but it was like sledding in my vehicle. Up this week with chains with v bar, night and day, it's like driving on road with no snow, no sliding, complete control, what an amazing difference, absolutely recommend these chains. I ordered for 265/60/18 but also have a truck that is 265/75/16 that these are rated to fit, they do, but will need the spider bungee as they are sort of loose on the 16 rim.



by:

Tried chains yesterday, fit like suede glove. Cam locks definitely worth the price. Used them as on 18 wheeler years ago and won't ever go back to rubber tensioner! 2 day delivery and free shipping just icing on cake.



by:

Chains grab the road good but the tensioners bend easily if not applied correctly.



by:

Rarely use chains but these work great. Got stuck in a snow storm in Flagstaff early March. There was about 18 inches of snow over rutted ice. While you do have to commit to putting these on and you will be wet and/or dirty, there will be no issue getting through. The cam system works great at achieving a good fit the first setting but the second setting leaves no question they're in place to stay. We have a RWD E350 with 285/75/R16's and drove by many 4x4 vehicles that couldn't get out of the rutted ice and compacted snow. The V bars really cut in for that extra traction. Can't recommend enough if you need that extra performance in extreme conditions.



by:

The chains were very easy to put on and adjust for tightness. I have a 2023 Ford F150 lariat and the clearance on the back tires is enough that they can be used on the back. I am not sure they would clear the front. Highly recommend.



by:

I was amazed with the quickness in receiving the order. Because of the age of the truck there a question about sizing the snow chains. I spoke to a representative and he recommended the size of chains to oder and I did.
They fit like a glove.
Thank you for your fine service.



by:

When I got them I installed one to see how much was involved in putting them on. I am 74 year old. It took me to tries but it was very hard. I would estimate about 15 to 20 minutes to put a set on. They tighten up good.



by:

I freaking love these chains! Easy enough to put on and tighten. A little rough riding on the road, but offroad they are awesome! I highly recommend these chains!



by:

Needed some individual adjustments (shortening, removing one cross-link) to my tires (no complain). After that, fitted very tight and performed above expectations on an unplowed section of road from the highway to my lake cabin.



by:

Just got my chains in the mail the other day, very fast shipping and delivery was excellent.
I used the chains for the first time today on my NEW truck and one of the links broke causing one of the cleated ladders to come apart and scratch up the paint on my quarter panel around the wheel well. This all happened in about the first 10 feet that my truck moved and the very first time these chains had been used.
I am happy with the service I have received in the past from etrailer and this time has been no different. Just disappointed in the quality of these chains.



by:

There is a mistake here. The third item shipped to me was the t-bar can tensioner tool. It's to small to properly engage the cams.



by:

Great heavy duty chain. My dad is a truck driver and says these are just like the ones they use on their rigs. I have a 1990 C2500 so it doesn't do well in the snow at all. Now I can safely get to work in the early mornings before the plow comes through!



by:

They looked like a nice set of chains, but have to rate a 1 star due to my experience. A customer service rep confirmed via chat that these chains would fit my tires (265 70 R16), but they were too small.



by:

I just tried the chains out yesterday for the first time. My first impression is that they are a really nice set of chains.

I did have to remove some length for my tires (265/70r16), I cut 4 links, basically removing the last step of the ladder on each chain. Before that there was too much extra chain in the way, it made it harder to get the chains on and I would have had to bungee everything down so it wouldn't wrack my fender. That much was perfect for my tires and I still have room for adjustment. I could add the extra length back on for bigger tires with a set of connecting links.

It is great that they have 4 cams on each tire for getting any slack out, really leaves you a lot of adjustment. These things always have to be rolled over a few times and tightened down again. The main hook on the outside is nice and long, the chains are sturdy and the stainless coating or whatever it is seems very tough. I took them up and down the gravel road a bit and didn't notice any wear at all afterward. Didn't need bungees, hit 45mph and felt smooth. Trolled around in the snow a bit and even without any weight in the back of my truck I could climb a decent grade in ~8 inches of snow.



by:

Just put the 4821 dually chains with cams on my truck and I'm impressed with the ease of installation. Tested them out on an icy hill and snow on top too...AWESOME CHAINS! They look as though they'll hold up well.
Thank you Nicole R. at etrailer for your assistance. ;)



by:

They are nice chains, and they arrived very quickly, so I'll give 1 star for that despite the fact they don't come with a reuseable bag. But the other 4 stars come off because they don't actually fit the tire sizes they indicate they fit. My tires are 265/75-16 on a 2006 Chevy 2500HD. I installed the chains, using the closest link available for the inside and outside catch, then cycled all four cams, and the chains are still too loose. In fact, I could cycle the cams by hand, and didn't even need to use the special tool, that's how loose they are. You can clearly see in the included picture how much slack there is at the keeper since it's hanging lose instead of taunt against the tire like is should be. You can also see that it is connected to the closest link, and that all four cams are tightened. You can even make out the tire size. This isn't an installation problem, or an operator error. This is a "they don't fit what they say they fit" problem. I tried calling etrailer for assistance, but other than verify I had the correct chains for my tire size, all they could do was suggest I get the rubber bungee cord things.

So now I have the outside rubber things coming to try and take up the slack if I actually need to use them during my trip next week. Tire chains specified for a given tire size range should fit. These don't, but I don't have enough time to change them out and have no confidence anything else I ordered would fit better anyway. Later when I have time, I'll remove one of the laterals so I can tighten the chains more, but for $150 I would expect a product that fits. Buyer beware...

My brother has a pair of older chains (no Vbar)and they seem to work pretty good in the deep snow on a lake. So I decided to buy a set and tried these....and the very first time using them they were put to the test. Needless to say, I was extremely impressed with how well they worked. Installation for the first time was easy. Having the Cam tighteners is a must have....simply tighten them up and your good to go. No adjusting or tweaking the chains to get them right. The Vbars kept on "eating" into the snow and ice. Basically, as long as the vehicle is not hung up on snow and ice, they will keep chugging along and keep you moving. Even helped pull another truck off the lake that got stuck going through the hardpack of a snowmobile trail (Which if anybody knows, is hard to drive on when you're breaking through the hardpack). The first day of use was as much if not the most harsh use they will get and they worked excellent. No signs of any chain breaking. I would definitely recommend these chains.



by:

I have used chains in the past without tightening cams and aways struggled with getting the chain tight enough.

These chains with the cams are a joy to use. The went on easily and tightened up with out a problem.

I used these chains with all weather tires and had no difficulties while plowing 18 inches of heavy wet snow. Prior to using the chains I was getting stuck in the same snow.

We'll worth the money and etrailer provided great service.



by:

These universal chains fit my 18 inch tires well.
