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)

2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

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

2016 Ram 2500

Great quality chains at a great price! I had to get another set of chains for larger tires, this price was comparable to the price I paid for the 17" tires. I have gone through a foot of snow and over thickly covered icy mountain roads with no slipping. I highly recommend the "V" chains for any icy conditions. I'm good to go, just waiting for the snow!

- TC3829

Tire chains are exactly as described. Fast shipping.. got them today and put them on my 285/65 r18 tires.. perfect fit. Tried them out in the snow in the backyard, went through almost 8 inches with no problem in 2 wheel drive... cant wait to get out on the frozen lake and put them to the real test on the ice.

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.

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.

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

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.

Had to use them on a hill on the property. Went on okay, turned the Ram 3500 into a tank.

  • V-Bar Tire Chain Recommendation for 285/70-17 for Off-Road Use
    For a V-Bar tire chain that is designed for your 285/70-17 tire size and is rated for off-road and on-road use the part # TC3829 is a confirmed fit that would work well for you. Then to keep the chains nice and tight on the tire you would want the part # TCMA2. You will need to check the owners manual of your truck to determine tire chain restrictions.

  • V-Bar Tire Chains that Fit 2007 Dodge Ram with Tire Size 295/70-17

  • How to Maintain Correct Tension of Tire Chains
    Since all tire chains fit more than one tire size rubber chain tension adjustors like # TCMA2 can be installed to take up any slack and maintain correct tension so that chains remain in place on the tires. The Titan Ladder Pattern V-Bar Snow Tire Chains # TC3829 you referenced are a confirmed fit for the 285/70-17 tires on your truck. Always check your vehicle owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding use of tire chains.

  • Recommended V-Bar Snow Chains For 305/55R20 Tires
    I have a solution for you but the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC3829 that you were looking at are not confirmed to fit your tires. For 305/55R20 tires you will want to go with Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Links # TC3831. These chains have v-bar links which will give superior traction in deep snow and ice. Adjusters are recommended to ensure a tight fit on the tires and for this I recommend Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster...

  • Titan V-Bar Tire Chains for 275/70-18 Tires on 2017 Toyota Tundra
    For your 275/70-18 tire size, the # TC2828CAM wouldn't be a fit. For a similar V-bar chain set, use # TC3829. For tensioners, I'd recommend # TCMA2. If you click the provided link, you can see a product demonstration video featuring the Titan V-bar chains.

  • Recommendation for Heavy Duty V-Bar Snow Chains for 275/70-18 Tires on 2011 Ford F-350
    According to the owner's manual, Ford doesn't state any prohibitions regarding using snow tires on your truck as long as you're not using 20 inch wheels, so you'll be good to go. Of the two V-bar chains available for your 275/70-18 tires, the # TC3829 uses a heavier 7mm thick chain link, so if heavy duty is what you're looking for, that is what I'd recommend. These chains can be used on or off-road and offer superior bite on icy road surfaces. You might also consider a set of tensioners...

  • Tire Chains Recommended for 285/70-17 Tires
    I have two recommendations, the best option will depend on the type of road surface you typically find yourself on. The Titan V-Bar chains, part # TC3829 feature integrated V-bars that really bite into icy road surfaces. The Titan # TC3229S square link features square chain links that get good traction, but they aren't quite as good on very icy surfaces as the V-bar chains. Both chains can be used on or off road. If you'll only use the chains in deep snow, ice or off road, the V-chains...

  • Finding The Proper Size Tire Chains For My 2005 Ford F-350.
    It all comes down to tire size. standard tire sizes for the stock 2005 Ford F350 are 245/75-17, 265/70-17, 275/65-18 and 275/70-18. If you have one of these sizes 245/75-17, 265/70-17 or 275/65-18 you can use these V-Bar Chains # TC2828CAM if you needed superior traction and the twist link chains # TC2228CAM if you needed a less aggressive chain. If you have this tire size 275/70-18 here are the aggressive twist link chains # TC3829 and the twist link # TC3229CAM for something in the middle....

  • Titan V-Bar Tire Chain Recommendation for 275/70R18 Tires
    There isn't a way to extend the Titan chains part # TC2828 that you have. You would need to order a new set part # TC3829 which is the correct size.
