Note: These chains are not intended to be put on commercial vehicles like plows, forklifts, or tow trucks.


Installation

1. Drape the chain over the tire (or both tires of a dual-tire setup), making sure that the center chain is between the tires and that the side chain with the lever is on the outside. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

2. Reach around behind the tire(s) and fasten the ends of the chain together.

3. Move back to the front of the tire(s) and fasten the ends of the chain together using the built-in lever.

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 chains, 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

Video Transcript for Titan Chain Wide Base and Dual Tires Snow Tire Chains Review

Adam: What's going on, everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the line of Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains. So these chains are going to be for your wide-based tires or even some of your dual tires. These are going to have a low carbon construction, going to be extra hard, and they are going to wear away relatively evenly. It is going to take quite a bit, a couple of seasons, to start noticing that wear. But these twist links are going to get a really good traction, but it's also going to be a little bit smoother than some of those big, chunky square links that you may see.As you can tell here, it is a ladder-pattern style, so it isn't going to be as smooth as some of the less aggressive chains.

But we're looking for the best grip, and these are going to give you pretty much one of the better grips of the more aggressive style chain. But we're still going to get a decent ride, so it's definitely the best of both worlds in my opinion. We don't have any cam tensioners on this style chain, which some people like them, some people don't. Some people have been saying that sometimes they actually come undone whenever it's more thick, harder, icy snow, just because it kind of runs in and then undoes the cams. And also if you guys have the tool and you guys lose it, that might not necessarily be good.

So we won't have that issue here, but we will have to make sure and find our rubber tensioner, which we are going to need with these chains. But that's just one little thing. It's the same as just having to keep track of your cam tensioner tool.It does come in a canvas bag, not necessarily the best bag, but it definitely gets the job done. They both fit in there. That's pretty much what we're looking for.

But these don't necessarily wear. They don't really keep up over time, so after a while you might see them rip a little bit so you might have to go ahead and grab another bag. But they do come in a set of two. So for your two-wheel applications, you guys can just go ahead and grab one. But if you want to put them on all four of your tires, you can just go ahead and grab two.

We do not want to exceed 30 miles an hour, and that's pretty much it.Here's a rubber tensioner. This is what they look like. They're just on our website. If you guys just scroll down on the webpage, it should be in the related parts. It does not come with the kit, but it is a one-stop shop so you don't really have to go anywhere else. All we really need to do is just make sure that the hook is going to be facing the outside of our wheel. And then we just want to do our best to be as symmetrical as we can. This is just going to evenly distribute all of that force throughout the tensioner, which is just going to help it keep it nice and tight. But once we get all that hooked up, we do recommend rolling over them a couple of times, coming back out and then checking and make sure it's still nice and tight. If it is, ready to hit the road. Well, everyone, that just about does it for a look at the line of Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Delivered fast, popped these on to get gamiliare with them and actyally tested them out on a road that was snow packed solid ice, my truck would not spin... i tried to make it, but the chains would not allow it in my situation. Yes chains ride rough.. real rough to be honest, but its better than not making it to your destination. They are heavy ( a big pro) feel like excellent quality and would recommend them to anyone who lives in a state that allows them.


Comments
I have only used them twice since i bought these, how ever they have held up great in storage, not a single spot of rust, or anything. They are still in brand new condition

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I've had very positive experience with this company. Last winter I ordered cable-chains from another provider. They weren't up to the task I needed and one set broke pretty quickly. I then ordered a single set (two tires) of chains from etailer to replace the cable-chain that snapped. The purchasing process was seamless, they arrived quickly and they were of very high quality. They took me through the rest of a challenging winter season. With another winter now approaching, I just ordered a 2nd set so I can install them on all four tires. I won't bother to try to use the cable-chains. Good company, good product.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Good chains, but were a bit too long for my 2017 Lexus GX, so a few links of chain had to be cut with a bolt cutter. Even with the chain cut, there is a little extra length that needs to be tied up so that it isn’t clunking as you drive. I’ve had plenty of experience installing chains (both cable and regular) and these were the most difficult ones I’ve ever put on. Hopefully this gets a bit easier with practice!

Chains seem to be made top quality. Only test fit them so far with perfect fit on a 35x12.5 r18 tire. Hopefully I dont have to use them but the security of having them and knowing the quality and fit is great is worth it.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Needed these chains for a snowboarding trio this December. Installed them in my yard to make sure they fit, and figure out which link worked best. Now that i know what link to use, next time it should only take sbout 10 min to put them on. I really like how they stay away from my wheels so should not scrstch them. My yard was very soft from recent rain and you can see how well the chains dig into the mud. Should be really good on snow/ice.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I got the chains on just before a big snowfall. I put them on my plow truck. (Silverdo with a 8’ meyers) what a difference. Plowed up and down my ice and snow covered 1/4 mike drive with lots of curves and hills. Couldnt be happier with the chains. It took me 2 hours to install them. Never had chains before. There is a learning curve. I expect it will take me 1/2 hour next time. The cam tensioner wrench is made of really soft steel and broke within 15 minutes. I would recommend spending the money for a better one. They about as much as a beer at a ballgame.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


This is the 3rd set of chains I've bought from eTrailer, the first 2 sets were for my work truck and this most recent purchase was for my personal truck. I work as a delivery driver and bought the first set of chains because i don't have a lot of say which snowy/icy roads i deliver to. Being a work truck the first set of chains got abused a bit so when they finally failed it wasn't unexpected, but up until that point they were nothing short of perfect. So far the 2nd set for my work truck is going strong (with a bit more effort not to abuse them as much). This 3rd set is for my personal truck and more for peace-of-mind than anything else, i doubt they will see more than extremely rare use but i have no doubts that they will work as well as i expect them to. I have not yet taken advantage of the "customer service" from eTrailer since every single thing I've ordered has been received and worked exactly as expected. Communication regarding my order and shipping has always been excellent and even better than i expected. Shipping has been super fast and I've received my products days before i thought i would. ***the picture included isn't exactly the best but you can see the chains and conditions that day (that truck is about the worst vehicle for driving in winter conditions)... also those chains are a different size but they are the same chains.

I had some concerns about the chains fitting my vehicle, 2015 Ram 1500 with P275/60R20. I couldn't find any information from Dodge, nor my dealer, but Etrailer.com just happen to have a video showing 3 options for my exact truck. I tried them on to make sure they fit, and they fit pretty snug and look like they will do just fine. I haven't tested them in the snow, but I will write a follow up review once that happens.

These tire chains fit my JLG Boom Lift tires, size 25x7-12, perfectly after I removed two cross links. They were longer than I needed, but worked perfectly fine after I made the adjustments, which was very easy to do! The advice provided by Andrew was perfect! Thank you Andrew and etrailer.com. Also, I received the chains 2 days after I ordered them - super fast shipment!!! Great company to deal with. I would buy from them again!

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Delivered quickly and the website video was helpful. I practiced putting these on in the driveway, and they’re very simple to install. I may buy a new bag to hold them in though because they’re heavy, probably 40-50 pounds, and the bag they come in is a little iffy.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Not sure these chains would last on a Ford F250 diesel. They are really designed for light weight subcompact passenger car. We shall see .... I am not planning to carry any significant weight on the snow so they should hold up a few seasons. The price is awesome!


Comments
Since the tire chains are made for a 265/75-16 wheel they should hold up on the Ford. Most trucks do have a larger tire on them but since you are not putting any extra weight in the back I do not see you having an issue with the chains.

Very easy installation (watch the video on the etrailer website) and excellent fit on a 2010 Tundra. I plan to visit Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana in the winter and most routes have a few mountain passes.

I can say that Ive used the chains intermittently and found them to be durable, well-fitting, and most importantly, very easy to install

Bought for my 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. It is now unstoppable. My Vermont private road is too steep to be classified as a town road, and it went up through 6 inches of snow with icy spots without ever flinching.

Great price and fast delivery! I tried one to check the fit on my tires and it was very good. I like the cam tightening system too! I bought them for a planned cross country trip and you'll never know if it will be snowing in the mountains.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


The tire chains arrived fast. Easy to put on. Have used them multiple times up in the mountains...deep snow, ice, and muddy slick clay. Excellent traction. It is great to be the truck that isn't sliding all over and getting stuck.

I have an ‘07 toyota camry tire size 215/60/16 and was able to install the chains on both of the drive tires in less than 7 mins by myself. I could've bought snow cables but based on my research, the camry is not low profile, plus the snow chains have more “bite” traction vs the cables! Etrailer is my go to place for auto accessories!!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Id give a 10 star, but 5 star was the max, extremely pleased with my experience with the purchase.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


A Bag of Chains is better that a Sack of Coal for Christmas. Seriously, if it's slick outside from snow or ice, one bag of tire chains will get me home safely. With a rear wheel drive pickup, I would need 10 bags of coal to get a grip. I'm glad they came in a heavy duty canvas bag which takes up less room than a plastic box- that might not last a season. Also, etrailer.com had an easy-to-use tire size guide to match to the right products, and a good selection of products to choose from. Mainly, these chains give me the confidence to be the backcountry when the weather report is sketchy.


Comments
Funny that you should write, were expecting snow tomorrow, so I put the chains back in the truck. Sorry, nothing else to report.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Fantastic customer service. Ordered on a Friday afternoon, received by Tuesday, left to a snowy camp on Thursday. Chains did not list my tire size on the bag but included them on the website. Tried the sizing before I left home and they fit perfectly. Received almost 2 feet of snow and chained the fronts and backs in order to pull a 30' trailer up a nasty forest road. Chains were easy to put on and worked like a dream. Totally recommended, especially for the price.

Cam lock is a must. These are not your father's tire chains. I ordered these from etrailer because I knew I would get the right fit for my vehical and a quality product. Their customer service is excellent. Note: the fit of tire chains is everything. If it is to tight it will be nearly impossible to install. Too loose, you may throw a chain ripping out your brake lines, destroying your CV joints and other suspension parts. Plus having to find the chain some where back down the road if it is not wrapped around your suspension and then reinstall it on the road. So size is everything and please use chain tensions.
