V-Bar Icebreakers


V-Bar Icebreakers

The V-shaped studs (also known as icebreakers, spikes, or cleats) that are built into these twist-link tire chains bite into ice, providing superior grip for a safer ride on ice-covered roads.


Installation

1. Drape the chain over the tire, making sure that the V-bars are facing out.

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

3. Fasten the ends of the chain together.

4. 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.

5. 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

The product is great. The only problem I have is apparently UPS has a difficult time trying to find our address. I had to go over to the neighbors to retrieve my purchase. Not a etrailer problem. I tried my chains on and they fitted great. We will definitely use etrailer again.

Well made product. Had to be back ordered but staff were attentive and the follow through was excellent. The chains are aggressive and appear to be well suited for my needs traveling in remote off road conditions. The only suggestion I have is to include installation instructions for those not mechanically inclined. I would recommend this product.



by:

These chains are as chunky and sturdy as they look. I haven't tested them on snow yet but I think they will be fine. They are reasonably intuitive to fit, but be sure to try them out before you need them!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


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...


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. There can be differences in how a chain will fit on a certain tire size depending on the tire manufacturer. A tire made by Goodyear in a 265 75 R16 size will be slightly different then the same size made by Kenda for example. We always recommend using a set of rubber adjusters with these chains to ensure a snug fit. If your rim size is 14 to 24 then we recommend part # TCMA2

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


These chains work great and look better. We were driving to a trailhead where the road turned into deep hard snow with 1.5 foot deep ruts. We couldn’t proceed because of downed trees. The snow was hard enough that the truck got stuck in 4WD low because it kept digging itself in. Thank goodness I had the chains because once I put them on I was able to grip and turn around with no issue.

Boc arrived wet, see pics. Working w Ellen regarding the chains (maybe) being too long. Have to connect to the next crossover in order for them to be tight enuf to stay on) & yes all cams are shortened. Chain excess would slap against the vehicle

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


For a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic with 4x4 with stock 275/60 R20 tires.
Summary: Good on Rear Tires NOT on Front Tires.
They fit good on the rear tires but I do not recommend for the front tires. Unless I'm installing them wrong there is not enough clearance between the inner front sidewall and suspension components (Steering Knuckle and Upper Control Arm). It would be nice to have on both front and rear axles though.


Comments
Thank you for your review! I saw the problem you mentioned in your review and looked it up in the owners manual for a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Where they talk about the use of tire chains, they only recommend that tire chains be used on the rear axle tires only. Just wanted to pass along what I found out as a reason for TC2828CAM not fitting the front tires. Hopefully this helps!

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. ;)

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Excellent!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


To the unfamiliar don’t wait till your stuck to put the chains on. Some of us are slow learners, just saying. The dual tire chains known as “ triples” are tuff to connect the center chain. However the cam lock tighteners are the way to go. I’m 62 and living in Maine. I’ve used tire chains every winter plowing snow or traveling to my favorite ice fishing spot. These chain are superior because of the v bar cross links and the cam lock tightener. I wish they had been available years ago! Highly recommend but don’t take my word on it. Try them on for your vehicle you won’t regret it!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


I use the chains on my vehicle to plow snow on 7 miles of gravel roads, this year being 4 snowfalls. The installation of the chains are fairly easy to accomplish. I'm confident that the rugged construction will last for years to come.

Chains continue to be rugged enough through multiple days of plowing snow on 7 12 miles of gravel roads.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


Overall it works excellent but the sizing seems a little off I can't tighten it enough, and one of the chain V link sections is defective some of the links point the wrong way. Also, the price went up a lot since I bought it. Despite all this, its worth it to get these, no other chains I have tried are anywhere near as good.


Comments
You mentioned that the chains are not tightening enough and that some of the V links point the wrong way. I wanted to see if it would be possible to send pictures of the chains installed on your tire?

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


I live on an unpaved road 7 miles in high on a mountain which ices up nightly. Winter starts here mid October and ends mid May. These ice chains are needed to get me home a few nights a week during the winter months. They fits as described. I questioned Angela at customer service if these chains wold fit “E” load tires. She told me they would and they do. I like etrailer as my goto accessory store for my HD Sierra, Tundra and Tahoe Z71. The videos are very informative except I haven’t been able to install the chains without moving the vehicle. I need to roll it either forward or back to complete the install. Please see photos.
Thank You for your Professionalism at etrailer

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

    Yes we do offer tire chains that fit the tire size 35x12.50R20 that you have which you can see all of them at the attached link on this page. Our most popular option is the Titan chains part # TC2335 which install easily, provide great traction, are smoother riding due to the diamond pattern, and are priced great.

  • Best Snow Tire Chain for 2016 Polaris Ranger UTV
    I have a couple options for tire chains for your 2016 Polaris Ranger UTV. It depends on what situation you want them for. My personal favorite is the Titan Chain Alloy Tire Chain # TC1545 with its diamond pattern and relatively easy to install design. The diamond pattern has more tire coverage than your traditional ladder style chains, so it is great with maneuvers like sharp turns or quick stops.

  • What Tire Chains Do You Recommend for My 275/70-18 on My 1996 GMC K1500 Sierra?
    I have a great solution for you. From my research on your vehicle, the owner's manual says that you cannot use tire chains on the front tires of your 1996 K1500 GMC Sierra. However, you will still be able to benefit from tire chains that are installed on your rear tires. For great chains for your rear tires that will fit your 275/70-18 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern # TC3829.

For snow and icy conditions, the Titan V-bar chains, part # TC2816CAM features V-shaped studs that really bite into the ice for superior traction. The chain set includes a cam-style tightener, but I'd still recommend using adjusters like part # TCMA2.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 275/60R20 Tires on a 2021 Chevy Tahoe
    We do have the Titan Chain Snow Chains # TC2828CAM which use the V-Bar link for deep snow and ice and they fit the 275/60R20 tires on your 2021 Chevy Tahoe. My only concern is that when I looked up your owner's manual online it specifically stated not to use tire chains on your size tires due to low clearance. This means that using standard chains that wrap around the back side of the tire will come into contact with something on the back side like brake lines or suspension parts. Because...

    I attached a link to a page that has all of the tire chains we offer that fit your tire size of 305/65-18 but I really like the Pewag Starwave chains part # PW94FR which provide great traction, are lighter weight, and will last a very long time.

  • Are There Tire Chains for 315/75-16.5 Tires
    I do have tire chains for 315/75-16.5 tires but they are for skid steer applications, the Titan Chain Skid Steer/Loader Chains part # TCSS14S are what I recommend. These chains have square links so they work great in both snow and on ice. If you have a different application please let me know what that is and I will see if we have a better option for you.
