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. Use the cam tensioning devices that are built into the side chain to tighten. Do this by inserting the flat end of the included wrench into the slot on each cam and twisting it.

5. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed.

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 w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link - 1 Pair - TC3829CAM

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (437 Customer Reviews)

The V-bar studs on these chains bite into ice to give you superior traction. The ladder pattern assists with starts and stops. Low-carbon steel twist links are great in deep snow. Cam tighteners let you quickly adjust the fit for simple installation.

Granted, I have not actually tried these chains out on the snow/ice yet. I have put the chains on my tires to check for fit and to see how easy or difficult they would be when the time comes, and they fit great and went on very easily. With the cam system I was able to tighten the chains very snug to the tire and without the need of bungee cords, bc there was no slack in the chains. Chains look to be made from great material....exactly what I was needing!

- TC3829CAM

I have used chains in the past without tightening cams and aways struggled with getting the chain tight enough. These chains with the cams are a joy to use. The went on easily and tightened up with out a problem. I used these chains with all weather tires and had no difficulties while plowing 18 inches of heavy wet snow. Prior to using the chains I was getting stuck in the same snow. We'll worth the money and etrailer provided great service.

I just received the chains. etrailer was very helpful over the phone helping me select chains that were right for my truck, and the right for the type of terrain I am going to use them on. Shipping was quick, I did 5-7 day and they moved it to 3-5 for free. The chains fit my truck really well. I have not tried them off the road yet, but they look very aggressive so not concerned. They are really east to install, took me less than 5 minutes and you can put them on without actually moving the truck. This is also a plus.

- TC3829CAM

The service was exceptional. ordered on Monday and the were delivered to Maine on Thursday. Very prompt. As far as fit, I can't tell you yet. I ordered the correct size for my tires, so I assume they are ok. I will try them on before it snows. I really like the way you track your product. From the order to the delivery and every hand that touches the order. I guess that way, everyone is held accountable. Good business practice. Thank you

- TC3829CAM

I installed the chains and my truck to discover that they are at least three links too long. I have the correct size according to the bag they came in. So I guess I will saw off the additional links. These chains don't look as heavy as I hoped and they are made in China.

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

Great set of chains for the price, fitted them on the new truck and they fit nice and tight with plenty of room for adjustments. Haven't used these yet on ice but I have the same set but smaller for my Yukon and they worked great. The V bar bites down well with only mild ride change. I have these for trips to Tahoe and keep them in the truck as a "just in case". Hopefully I won't have to pull them out but if I do I know this pattern works well and will get me home.

Pontiac Montana

Bought and installed on old 1978 Chevy 4x4 Camper Special for Montana winters. 4x4 needs added traction traveling off property in Kootenai Mountains. This old pick-up is used to get supplies and haul firewood. Chains were an enormous aid in Snow, Ice, and Mud that make traveling sometimes treacherous. These chains are superior to old ones; and truly seize the road. Love 4 Wheeling.

2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

Bought these for my 2014 Ram 2500. Product looks to be quality hardware. I only gave four stars as I have not road tested yet. I'm sure these chains will bite into any ice and snow without much effort. I will find out soon.

- TC3829CAM

Have not towed with it yet. However I will be using in next week towing a car dolly on a 3,000 mile round trip. Not a real test of this product because it's superbly built. Well worth the price.

exactly as listed and fit perfect. the cams make these the easiest chains I have ever installed.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

For a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic with 4x4 with stock 275/60 R20 tires. Summary: Good on Rear Tires NOT on Front Tires. They fit good on the rear tires but I do not recommend for the front tires. Unless I'm installing them wrong there is not enough clearance between the inner front sidewall and suspension components (Steering Knuckle and Upper Control Arm). It would be nice to have on both front and rear axles though.

Thank you for your review! I saw the problem you mentioned in your review and looked it up in the owners manual for a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Where they talk about the use of tire chains, they only recommend that tire chains be used on the rear axle tires only. Just wanted to pass along what I found out as a reason for TC2828CAM not fitting the front tires. Hopefully this helps!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

Good morning, I have used your tire chains for years. Always loved them. Today I tried them on my new Ford Ranger. (Bought New for that truck) Backs fit great, fronts not at all. I guess I will have to contact customer service to return them.

Sorry to hear that. Customer Service will be in contact with you.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

They are great chains but you have to, have to, have to, I can’t express it enough, buy the rubber bungee cord hooks to make it tighter and keep the chains on, I tried without it at first and any speed over 8mph and they might fall off, I have a 2018 F150 and with both products I can drive up to 35 to 40 mph without any issues even though I think that speed is not recommended, I just wanted to see what would happen. It’s a Texan thing, I’ve used these in Colorado and New Mexico and are perfect

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

Just put the 4821 dually chains with cams on my truck and I'm impressed with the ease of installation. Tested them out on an icy hill and snow on top too...AWESOME CHAINS! They look as though they'll hold up well. Thank you Nicole R. at etrailer for your assistance. ;)

These vbar chains are awesome. I dont need 4X4 most of the time.
Charlie - 01/26/2019

Ive put over 50 miles on mine. I will buy another set when these wear out. I use mine when I plow.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

I live on an unpaved road 7 miles in high on a mountain which ices up nightly. Winter starts here mid October and ends mid May. These ice chains are needed to get me home a few nights a week during the winter months. They fits as described. I questioned Angela at customer service if these chains wold fit “E” load tires. She told me they would and they do. I like etrailer as my goto accessory store for my HD Sierra, Tundra and Tahoe Z71. The videos are very informative except I haven’t been able to install the chains without moving the vehicle. I need to roll it either forward or back to complete the install. Please see photos. Thank You for your Professionalism at etrailer

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

I bought 2 sets of these chains and love them! In 2 feet of snow the truck was un- stoppable on the lake with just the set on the back. I didn't have enough room between the tire and front bumper to put them on the front. They were very easy to install and with the cam adjusters they tighten up very well! Ice Fishing season was over and I hooked my 6,000# ice shack up and to be safe we used 2 trucks together with these chains and plowed our way through 2 feet of pretty wet snow and ice. Very impressed with the traction that they give you.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

Chains are perfect, mounted and tested, getting my snowplow ready for winter. I only had to cut a few links off of the ends for a perfect fit, I made sure the v-bars were all pointing out. I am anxious for our first snowfall. I am happy with all of my purchases from e-trailer

Perfect!! I wish I had bought these years ago. Hills and tight spots are not a problem anymore!

  • 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...

  • V-Bar Tire Chains for a 2012 Ram 2500 with 285/70-17 Tires
    The Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains part # TC3829CAM are a fit for a 2012 Ram 2500 with 285/70-17 tires and have the v-bar construction with cams you are looking for. In fact, these are the only tire chains that fit your tire size and have both the v-bar construction with cams. Please note, the owner's manual only states to use tire chains on the rear two tires due to limited clearance between the inside of tire and brake lines etc. If you wanted to use tire chains on the front two tires...

  • Determining Correct Tire Chains For 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty W/ Load Range E Tires
    I was able to find in the owner's manual for your 2019 Ford F-350 that as long as you do not have 20" wheels you will be able to use Class S snow chains on your truck, even if they have an E load rating. Since the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires # TC3829CAM you were looking at are not Class S chains, you will need to use a different chain. Class S chains are lower profile for vehicles that have limited clearance between the tires and suspension and or body components. Since...

  • Best Snow Chains for Deep Snow and Ice for a Tire Size 285/70/17
    I would recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC3829CAM.

They also will do very well in deep snow as that is what they are designed for. Check out the review video to the right that I attached for more info.

  • Adding Links to Tire Chains and Recommended Tire Chains for 2017 Subaru Outback
    Depending on the type of tire chains you have, you may be able to add a few links on the inside to better fit your wider tires. As long as you have the proper tools and make sure the added width and links don't interfere with the truck's brake line, this should work just fine. Please note though that making any alterations like this will likely void the warranty on the chains. With that being said, since it sounds like you have been using these chains for a while, it may be time for...

  • Recommended Titan V-bar Link Tire Chains for 35x12.5x17 Tires
    For a Titan Chain V-bar link snow chain set for your 35x12.5x17 tires, I would indeed recommend a larger size than the # TC3829CAM chains you'd looked at. I'd recommend the same chain in a larger size, available as part # TC3831CAM which is a confirmed fit for your tire size. The V-bar links provide excellent traction on snow or ice. The chains do include the cams used for tightening the chain to the tire, but a set of rubber adjusters like part # TCOA2 would be a good investment to...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Nissan Titan with LT275/75R18 Tires
    For off-road chains to fit your tire size of LT275/75R18 there aren't any that are Class S compatible. The Titan Chains part # TC3829CAM would be great but the link thickness would be too large to be Class S compatible. The only tire chains we have for your tire size that are Class S compatible are actually cables like the part # PW2114V. These will certainly help in emergency situations, but they won't work as great as the Titan chains I mentioned earlier.

    You will need a different set of chains for your 285/75R17 than the set you used for your 265/70R17 tires.

  • V-Bar Tire Chain Recommendation for a 35x12.5x17 Tire

  • Titan Tire Chains for a 1996 Toyota Tacoma with 32x11.5-15 Tires
    Tire chains # TC3835CAM are just a little too large for your 32x11.5-15 tires but we do have chain options that will fit. For your tire size you would need # TC3829CAM. Normally I would say to consult the vehicle owner's manual on the use of tire chains. But since this is a non-stock tire size you may need to speak with Toyota or a dealer directly.

If you do not have dually tires I recommend part # TC3829CAM. These are tire chains with cam tighteners like the TC3229CAM used for dual tires. I also recommend installing tensioners to make sure the chains stay securely fastened. The tensioners I recommend are part # TCMA2.
