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.


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


  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

Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Links - 1 Pair - TC2828

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (354 Customer Reviews)

The V-bar studs on these tire chains bite into the ice to give you superior traction, while the ladder-pattern design assists with effective starts and stops. Durable low-carbon steel twist links also offer excellent grip in deep snow.


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!

1985 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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.


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.

2012 Ram 3500

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.


My order arrived on time and complete! Ordering was very easy! Nice to be able to talk to a real person! Thanks Jaime B. Herb

2019 Ford F-150

Amazingly fast shipping! The tracking the company has set up is probably the best there is. I have to keep etrailer in mind and stay away from [another website]...found these chains for the best price here on etrailer!

2017 GMC Sierra 1500

My tire size is not printed on the chain container so I had to search the internet and Titan's product catalog to verify they are the correct size. The chains are the correct size. The container should include my tire size.

Tire chains I have purchased in the past have always included a container suitable for storing them when they are not in use. This set came in a light duty plastic bag, inside a fabric bag. The plastic is likely to fail after the first use of the chains. The fabric bag is a light material which I don't expect to last. The fabric bag also does not include any means of keeping it closed. When I place the chains in the bed of my truck, I anticipate that the chains will spill out of the bag at the first turn I make. Very poor packaging.


Luckily have not had to use them yet but I did put them on to check the fit and they fit perfectly.

2012 Ford F-150

worked okay on my 2012 ford F150. close fit to rear shocks on rear wheels. not able to use on front wheels ( no clearance).


Excellent set of chains fit well great follow up from company.


Perfect fit for my Superduty plow truck. Makes a huge difference during the wet, heavy snow and sleet season up here in the Arrowhead!

Toyota Tacoma

I ordered Titan snow chains (TC2828) for my 2021Toyota Tacoma. I was blow away with customer service and the two day delivery. I will be a life time shopper from this day forward. The Titan snow are very well made and very durable, very impressed with this company. I appreciate when a company works hard for your business.


Great product works as described. Keeps us going in the snow back country roads Utah.

Shipping is slower than expected other than that great customer service and love the chains

2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

Order was what I ordered and was delivered on time, I received a tracking number soon after ordering I have purchased items from this company before and it is nice to get good service.

2010 Dodge Ram Pickup

I haven't put these chains to use yet but they seem to be as good as a set of semi truck tire chains and stout. Should do good for breaking threw deep snow and cutting threw ice.

Toyota Tundra

They worked great all winter. We live at the bottom of a steep hill and it becomes a sheet of ice. With the v-bar chains on the back of my 4wd Tundra I rarely had to use 4wd. Where I live it is all 25mph and gravel roads, but the chains where loud at that speed. I never had them work loose, but in the 3 months I had them on I did have to retighten them about 8 times.


Can’t say enough about these guys, even though delivery took tad longer than expected communication from etrailer team was on point from start to finish.

Thanks to etrailer team i know me and my family are safe no matter what weather conditions we have to go through.


I know they are good but I didn't have to use them last winter.


Awesome chains. Going on 2nd seasonal bought for all 4 tires. With these on I can make it to my log cabin during the fiercest weather.


Good service and really nice products

Fits really good ,work very well very good service

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Great service! I was able to find exactly what I as looking for and the ordering process was easy. The product arrived earlier than expected and I couldn't be more pleased with eTrailer and their fine professional staff. Thank You!


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.

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.
Mason - 07/06/2020

2016 Ford F-150

Received the snow chains exactly what I wanted. Thank you James for sending me the right ones.


Works great, I used them several times this past winter.


Better safe than sorry, great instructional video on putting on. Having a few additional links when attaching I am looking into adding a chain link connector instead of cutting the links that are not needed, keeping from potential hazard while driving.

  • Would Glacier Tire Chain TC2828 Fit Tire Size of 285/35R22 on Tesla Model X
    I checked with Glacier and the chains part # TC2828 are a fit for the tire size 285/35R22 of your Tesla. You will need to check with Tesla by either checking the owners manual or checking with Tesla to see if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Comparing Twist Link and V-Bar Style Tire Chains
    Twist link chains offer excellent traction in deep snow and some are even rated for mud. They provide decent traction on ice, and since they have rounded edges ride quality isn't too bad. V-Bar chains are similar but have better grip on ice. For your Ram 3500 with tires sized 275/55/20 a twist link chain would be the Titan Chain # TC2228CAM. These also come with cams for a desired tight fit. For V-bar chains you can use the Titan Chain # TC2828 chains. These can be used on or off road.

  • Tire Chain that Fits Tire Size 275/55-20
    The tire size you mentioned is compatible with the tire chains # TC2828 but that is only a fit for the actual tire size and does not guarantee clearance on the vehicle. Since your manual recommends no tire chains for that size I would recommend contacting a GM dealer in an area that requires tire chains and ask what they recommend you do to be compliant with tire chain laws and not damage the vehicle. Most likely they will say a Class S compatible chain like the part # TC2533 would be okay...

You can get the chains with the cams included with the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link - 1 Pair # TC2828CAM instead of adding the Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster for Heavy Trucks - 1 Pair # TCMA3.

    You are correct that cams are not generally made for off-road-use chains as the rough terrain increases the likelihood that they can come undone. When comparing the two Titan chains for your 265/75R16 tires, part # TC2828 and part # TC2828CAM, they are both great chains that have almost all of the same qualities (save for the cams). If you plan on travelling off-road, then go with the # TC2828. If you don't, then go with the # TC2828CAM since the cams make it much easier to get a tight...

    The best tire chains for your family trips to the California mountains are, as you suspected, the V-bar style chains.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Titan Chain Tire Chain Link Dimension for use on a 2014 Dodge Ram Pickup
    Technically these chains classify under the S Class because the widest part of the link on the tire chain will stick out .554 inches from the tires edge. See attached photo. I measured the overall width of the chain and found it to be 16 inches. I would use these dimensions to determine if the # TC2828CAM chains will work for your Ram. I have linked the above mentioned product to this page for your purchasing convenience.

  • Will Snow Chains On Just the Rear Axle of 2015 Chevy Tahoe Help Get Around in Snow and Ice
    Tire chains add quite a bit of overall size to a wheel and tire.

That would be why the owners manual of your vehicle states not to use them. Running chains on just the drive axle of your vehicle will help you still though.
