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. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed by moving the hook to the next link.


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)

I am impressed with the Titan Snow Tire Chains I purchased recently. They appear to be well made and sturdy. They fit my tires and were easy to install. The V-Bar links allow me to drive into the woods with the confidence that I will be able to return home safely.

Its been almost two years, and I still like the chains. Ive driven into the snowy woods a few times this winter and got home with no problem.

Well made, however the rear wheel clearance at the front inner side is questionable. Very close, maybe get a finger between chain and plastic inner fender. But I bought them for emergency use if need when plowing my driveway, and if kept tight may not cause a problem. Will have to check constantly and keep loose ends tied fast to rest of chains. Clearance might not be a problem with lifted vehicles. Am using on a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with oem tire size (but with Bridgestone Dueler AT ).

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I’m impressed. These tire chains are the real deal. I looked at various options online, Amazon, etc. I found etrailer. First, the web page is packed with info, tutorials, etc. once I ordered there was continuous communication. I downgraded from a 4x4 to a 4x2, and drive up to Buffalo, NY, from coastal Carolina. These chains are impressive and will provide traction and ease of mind going through the snow belt areas along Lake Erie and parts of the blue ridge mountains. I’ve hit heavy snow on this trip and wished I had a good tire chain. This resolved it. Installing is a breeze be sure to get the tire chain adjusters with them! Excellent service!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains fit well and are working great on our Kubota X1120D that we plow snow with. We plow on a 12% grade that gets icy so chains are necessary. The drive is sand and gravel so aggressive chains are fine. Our snow is usually wet and heavy. I would buy these again. etrailer was very helpful with this purchase as it seems this type of chains are hard to come by so the worked to find a supplier that could provide.


Comments
A year later and still working great - 6 inches of wet, heavy snow to plow - no problems with traction with these chains on the Kubota.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Excellent chains. Used them extensively this last November getting up and down a snowed over road and snow/iced over rocky trail up the mountain in CO. They didn’t break on the rocks and got great traction on ice, got me out of several miles of 3ft of snow with ice underneath. I highly recommend the steel spring chain tensions. When properly installed you can get these chains nice and tight. I can only run chains on my rear tires due to upper control arm clearance issues (‘08 Tacoma) so I’m giving my second pair to my brother (‘12 f150) for his rear tires.


Comments
Chains are still going strong, I make sure the wash and dry them after each season. Would definitely buy again and I definitely recommend the metal spring tensioners.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Great chains! Killer grip. They go on quickly and I learned which links to select to put on once and go without readjustment. They didn't keep me unstuck during that one storm last March where we had 4' of wet stuff, but I'm still learning how to deal with that much snow (or maybe I should just wait to use a skid). I'm driving an F350 with LT275/70r18 tires and can (usually) push whatever I want, including uphill 15% grade.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


After spending one day of my snowmobile trip digging out my 2008 F-250, I decided to buy chains to get through a mile of unplowed road to our cabin. I bought the TC3831 with V-bar links and chain adjusters TCMA2s so I could tackle the deep snow with ice underneath. The chains were easy to put on and worked excellent on an unimproved road. The heavy 7mm links did a great job of traction and control. I would recommend to anyone that needs to get a truck and trailer to their snowmobile destination. One recommendation is to check your chain tension after spinning the tires.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


My spare tire is mounted on a Roadmaster tire carrier (from etrailer) which attaches to the trailer hitch; excellent piece of hardware. That made trial fitting easy. BTW, my '85 F-250 Ford now has a 38 gallon gas tank where the spare tire used to be. I mark with red paint the outside of the chain to make it easier to see to install. The chains did not come with tie backs so I made some from stainless steel wire. The spring steel tensioners are superior in my opinion to the rubber ones, especially in freezing weather. Even though the truck is 4x4 with snow tires the law in my state and elsewhere mandates carrying tire chains anyway. Here is a big tip: when using chains try to drive on the snow, ice or gravel so that wear and tear on the chains is less...and stay under 30 mph.

Have not had to use these chains yet, but I did a practice run of hooking them up. They fit nicely and it was not too hard to install them.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains are well built. My 1 ton truck was in 6” deep snow when I chained up. The truck was able to tractor right up A steep hill. The binder is stout steel, not a stamped piece prone to bending. I used rubber tensioners. The combo worked great. All of my use has been off pavement this far. I bought two sets and would do it again.

These chains make a huge difference. I feel confident on out snowy roads in Northern Idaho. I did break off one cross chain when really pushing them, but otherwise they provide great traction and I'm considering another set for the front tires.

All items arrived in good condition in five days on Colorado mountain area, and were easy to install. The products all appear to be of good quality and should perform as expected when used. for 2017 Ram 2500, no enough clearance on rear tires, but no problem on Front tires clearance. Recommend the V-bar links and chain tighteners used on off-road snow and ice, 4 wheels drive, front ties for 2017 Ram 2500

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Chains carried 30day warranty. They broke any few weeks after their warranty expired and didn’t even last a full season. Do not invest your money into these poorly designed chains- too weak for heavy duty trucks. I’m very disappointed and glad they didn’t break anything else like break lines or something.

  • Correct Snow Tire Chains for a 1999 Ford F-250
    The correct snow tire chains for a 1999 Ford F-250 will be based on tire size. If you have 235/85-16 tires then the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains part # TC2821 will fit. If you have 215/85-16 tires then you'll need the part # TC2819 instead. If you have a different size please let me know what that is.

  • Best Tire Chain Recommendation for Ice for Jeep Wrangler 245/75-16
    For ice you really want to use V-bar chains as they are designed to break up the ice. Square links are best for deep snow and twist link are for people who want a smoother ride quality. For your tire size of 245/75-16 you would want the Titan chains part # TC2821CAM and you'll have no problem with the ice.

However you can use the Titan # TC2821CAM chains on any 235/80-17 tire, including a dually outside tire. I have also included a link to other chains you could choose from.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 1997 Dodge Ram Pickup
    Tire chains are generally best used on all four tires of 4x4 vehicles so long as the auto maker does not restrict use for any reason. Some tire sizes may affect the fit of chains on a vehicle if clearance in the wheel wells is limited. The best way to start is to check your truck owner's manual for any guidance regarding use of tire chains. I checked the Dodge website but they do not keep manuals for older trucks online; just have a look at your manual. If you can use chains on both front...

  • Titan V-Bar Snow Tire Chains for 245/75-16 Tires
    Although they do offer a fit, the Titan # TC2828 chain you'd looked at won't fit a 245/75-16 tire. I'd recommend either the Titan Snow Tire Chains with V-bar links, part # TC2821 or the same chain with cam tighteners, part # TC2821CAM. The V-bar chains are excellent for deep snow or ice. The V-bars do a great job of biting into slick surfaces for superior traction. Even if you go with the model that features the cam tighteners, it's still a good idea to use a set of tensioners like # TCMA2...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 1993 Ford F-150 With 245/75-16 Tires

Unfortunately, none of our chains that will fit a 245/75-16 tire will also fit a 265/75-16 tire. For the 265/75-16 tires I recommend the Titan # TC2828 ladder chains with v-bar links. For the 245/75-16 tires I recommend the Titan # TC2821CAM also with v-bars.
