Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large, aftermarket tires - may require Class S chains.


SAE Class S Clearances

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself.


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 Diagonal Alloy Cable Snow Tire Chains Review

Colin: Hey, everyone. It's Colin here at etrailer 00:00:01, and today we're going to take a look at Titan Chains' line of diagonal cable snow tire chains. Now, these are going to be available for a wide variety. size tires. So just make sure you enter your year, make, model, and our website's fit guide, and then enter your tire size to lead you to the set that's going to best fit your tire. Usually, your tire size can be found around the perimeter of your tire.

For instance, on our truck right here, it is written right here, 275/55R20. First, makes sure you get all the information before you go online and look.Now, cable chains are going to be a really nice low profile set of chains you can throw on your tires, gives you a little bit extra traction through any lighter snow and ice so that you can stay on the road and stay safe out there. Now, these cable chains, like I said, low-profile, you're not going to really feel them too much while you're driving. It really prevents you from having to get one of those bigger sets of steel chains where you have these really big links across your tire, which could provide a rougher ride. You don't really want to have to use those for any lighter snow and ice.

So if you live in an area where you're not going to experience a ton of it, this is going to be a really great set for you.Now, on the flip side of that, if you live in an area where you're really getting a lot of snow and ice year round and it really piles up, you're probably going to want to invest in something a little bit more heavy duty, a little bit more durable. These cable chains we're really designed for use a couple of times a year just to give you a little bit extra traction. So if you're getting your chains out multiple times a week throughout the winter, go ahead and try and invest in a more durable set.Now, these cable chains are going to have a diagonal ladder pattern that's going to give you a much smoother ride, like I said. So you're not going to feel like you're driving over a lot of little speed bumps like you might feel when you're driving with a set of ladder pattern chains. You're not going to feel these near as much.

Now, we have a really rugged wire making our cross chains, and then we have these alloy steel rollers right here that are wrapped around the wire that help give you the traction you need through any of that lighter snow and ice.The chains do come with a set of rubber adjusters. You're going to have one for each cable tire chain. Now, these are something that you want to use every single time that you get your cable chains out because you're going to pull down on your chains. Make sure they stay snug against your tire to give you the tracking that you need. If, for some reason, you haven't to misplace one of these, or maybe it just happens to wear down over time and break, there is a replacement set you can get to make sure you can keep using your snow tire chains.Now, the chains are going to be SAE Class S certified, meaning they're going to be perfect for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance.

Obviously, we don't have that problem right now with our truck. But if you got a crossover SUV or a sedan where it's really tight under there, it's not a lot of space, these chains are going to be a lot easier for you to install and they're going to be more compatible with it. These chains are also going to meet Department of Transportation needs in all 50 States.The chains do have a speed rating of 30 miles per hour, so just make sure you're being safe out there. They do come in a quantity of two and they do come with this nice carrying bag which is going to make for very easy storage when they're not in use. One thing I do want to point out is that you want to make sure you're installing them on the correct side of your vehicle. So if you have a rear wheel drive vehicle like our truck, you want to make sure you install them on the back wheels. If you have a front wheel drive vehicle, make sure you install them on the front wheels. Now with that being said, if you have a vehicle where you have all wheel drive or four wheel drive and you want to have a set for both sets of tires, then go ahead and just use the same part number, as long as you have that same tire size on the front of the back.Now, when you first get your set of chains, I'd always recommend getting them out and just practicing using them, getting them installed a couple of times on your tire and taking them off, putting them back on. Get the feel for them so that when you find yourself in a situation where you're out in the elements and you need to put them on, you're going to know exactly what you're doing. So I'll walk you through that process right now.Now, first thing you want to do is lay out your cable chain flat and you want to make sure that everything's all right with it. There's no kinks or twists. There's no breaks in any of the wire links. Once you've seen that, what we're going to do is slide it behind our tire. And then we're going to mark this as a halfway point. So we're going to have this wire coming out of the backside of our tire and this side coming out of the front side.One thing I do want to point out is that you can see that this says tire side on the backside. Says it right here, as well. That's letting you know that this side of these brackets should be making contact with your tire. So it should be facing up when you install them. So what we're going to do is take the backside of each of our cables, bring it up behind, and then make that connection right there, just like that. And we'll let that sit behind our tire, and we'll grab ahold of our cable chains and drape it around the top and sides of our tire upfront. Go ahead and make our connection right there. Now, we'll head to the bottom and do the same thing.Now we're ready for our rubber tensioner. We're just going to hook that on. I'm going to grab the one across from it and go straight down. We'll go side to side on them. And just like that, it's going to get a little tight. That's okay. Want to make sure you install these right so that your cable chains stay snug against your tire. You also would probably want to go ahead and move it around, make sure that it's as even as possible around your cable chain.You can see our chains are very snug on our tire, so now we just need to repeat this process for the other side. Once you've got both sets installed, go ahead and drive forward a bit and then stop and get out and just double check. Make sure there's no adjustments needed to be made. From there, you're going to be ready to hit the road.Well, thank you all for watching. But that's going to do it for our look at Titan Chains line of alloy cable snow tire chains.

Chains fit perfectly for my tires. Pretty easy to put on, just need a little elbow grease to get the bottom chain latched. It was hard for me to stretch the bands enough on my own and needed my husband to stretch the bands to hold the chains tight.




by:

The bungee attachment really keeps the chains tight to the tires.




by:

Nice bag and adjusters included . The chains themselves seem to be of high quality materials. E-trailer is amazing ordered on Wednesday and at my door on Friday absolutely awesome especially considering it’s December. Highly recommend and will definitely be using them again.We will see how they hold up haven’t been able to use yet that’s the only reason for 4 stars.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


These chains were a lifesaver! Our ski trip to Mt. Hood Meadows was only possible because of these chains. Oregon has strict chain laws, but rental car companies will not rent you chains. Because we were to arrive in Oregon the day after Christmas, when no tire stores would be open, I had to figure out an alternate plan. After lots of research to determine which rental car make/model we were likely to get and the most common tire sizes on those vehicles, I purchased these light and portable chains and we brought them with us from the East coast. Other reviewers indicated these chains were easy to install & remove, and we can confirm they are! The folks at etrailer were really helpful when I emailed. And the website is extremely user-friendly, with videos showing installation and a quick and easy way to determine the most likely tire sizes on a vehicle. Thank you etrailer for making our holiday ski trip possible!

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Haven't used tire cables yet … but … did install one to check the fit and look. And the thing fit perfectly on my 2019 F150 with 245/70r17 tires. Even look pretty good too! I especially like that the cables can be put on as the truck sets - no need to lay them out and back over them. And the carrying bag is nice - keeps everything together and able to be stored under a seat, in the bed, or wherever. I thought about getting chains with v-bars … but didn't think I needed anything that aggressive - so the tire cables ought to do just fine in deeper snow, packed snow and maybe even on ice.


Comments
Great accessory for winter driving! I had to use the cables while hunting in the western mountains of Maine in mid November- and they gave my F150 2WD the traction it needed to navigate some logging roads caked with snow and ice. Highly recommend them for on-road vehicles. And, was able to install them without moving the truck!

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


It is such a hassle to buy cable chains in a store and you are never quite sure they will fit. Buying them from etrailer was super easy and the quality is much better.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


The set of Cable Chains I bought were clearly used or returns.
The spider tighteners had use marks on them and the cables themselves had clearly been tried out, or on, and just thrown into the carry bag with the twisty-ties thrown in the bottom.
Bummed me out some, but I didn’t have time to complain at the time as I got them just in time to drive back up to Alaska.
When I got back to Alaska I sent off a review.
Y’all can do better. I believed I’d bought something new, not a retread.

I apologize for the state of your items. Customer Service will be reaching out.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Solid product. I used these chains while traveling in Wyoming and Colorado back country roads on my 2018 XLT Ford Sport 4 x 4. Easy on off. Having storage bags is great. You will not go wrong with these chains

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


They are a rather snug fit on my Honda CRV 235/60R18 tires but worked beautifully on my very icy hillside 1/3 mile driveway. Easy to put on. Very happy to have them.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


These were mounted on a 2017 Fiat 500 Sport. Last February we drove from Quartzsite Arizona thru Santa Fe New Mexico to Denver, Boulder, and then spent 3 weeks in Aspen Colorado before heading west back to Quartzsite. In Aspen it snowed nearly every day and I put the chains on and removed the chains multiple times. By the third cycle I had the installation wired and could install them on the side of the road in a raging blizzard in less than 5-6 minutes - with gloves on. Great product that worked incredibly well. We could have never done the trip without them.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Chains arrived just a few days late due to supply issues but one day prior to a Seattle snowstorm! The advice I received from etrailer was invaluable. I will be purchasing a trailer hitch for my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek next year. Way to go etrailer!




by:

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Received chains much earlier than I expected. etrailer is great to work with. Got notice when they shipped and confirmation when I received them. Watched their installation video and was able to install my chains easily. They fit perfectly and looking forward to hitting the mountain snow!

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Fortunately, I have yet to have used this product! However it arrived in a timely fashion, in fact in a very sturdy box and inside was a bag that held the Snow tire chains, nicely assembled. I'm hoping in the next few days to practice the initial installation to see they operate. In a couple of weeks I am going to Vermont and chances are I will be able to put these snow tire chains to the test




by:

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Shipping was quick and communication was great from purchase to delivery. The cable chains install quick and easy in one step without having to move your vehicle at all. Fit is perfect and snug for my 255/70R18 tires.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Easy on, easy on, seem like a great product. Haven’t tested them on the road, but they seem durable and would have plenty of bite. And as always, the installation video and customer service from etrailer was spectacular.

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Package arrived quickly and order looks great. Haven't had a chance to try the snow chains yet.




by:

Review from a similar V-Track Cable in Tire Chains


Chains easily installed, and stored in zippered bag. As our shipping address must have been used previously by our son’s Boy Scout troop, the chain’s box arrived to great confusion as no ex-Scouts knew what as ordered by “the old man”. Got it though, thanks.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Titan Diagonal Alloy Snow Cables arrived a day early. I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but I'm sure they will meet my needs. I plan to use them on my 2011 Prius when the roads are snow covered/icy. I'll have piece of mind knowing they're in the car if I need them.
