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.


Installation

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.

Some Deadly tire chains!! I highly recommend these bad boys to anyone who enjoys driving in the snow!

OOHH MAN these tire chains are Awesome!!! I mean awesome for idling around off road in hard snow, deep snow, icy snow lol. I recommend them to anyone who enjoys getting from point A to B no stops in between.



by:
2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Just bought them, but so far they look good! No issues with quality control and they look sturdy and well built. The installation videos from the etrailer folks on YouTube are excellent to figure out how to install them!

I'm going to travel from Chicago to Alaska this winter, so we'll see if I get a chance to use them on the Alaska highway. Expect an update sometime soon after the New Year.

Only had to use the chains once but it was pulling a trailer up a icy road and they worked great.



by:
2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

After spending one day of my snowmobile trip digging out my 2008 F-250, I decided to buy chains to get through a mile of unplowed road to our cabin. I bought the TC3831 with V-bar links and chain adjusters TCMA2s so I could tackle the deep snow with ice underneath. The chains were easy to put on and worked excellent on an unimproved road. The heavy 7mm links did a great job of traction and control. I would recommend to anyone that needs to get a truck and trailer to their snowmobile destination. One recommendation is to check your chain tension after spinning the tires.

2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty

First set of chains sent were the wrong part # and way too short.
Second set are are way too long.
I have the ability to alter chains myself but wondering if I should??
Customer service has been great with returns and such.

Oh no! Sounds like we are having a hard time getting the perfect ones for you so far. Lets not alter the chains just yet. I see that our customer service department has concluded that we do not carry a tire chain that will fit your tires. Lets go ahead give them a little while longer to see if the manufacturer themselves has a chain that will fit. I will get your review over to our customer service department and they will be getting in touch with you shortly on the matter.

Chains were easy to install. I went for a more rugged chain with the cleats, but now wish I got the ones without the cleats for the sake of the roads these may drive on.

by:
GMC Terrain

excellent quality and good price. I've had these over a year now and use the chains occasionally when off-roading with friends in deep snow and/or icy conditions. These have helped me thru terrain that would have been impassable without chains. Highly recommend these for anyone with 35" tires that needs to get thru the roughest winter terrain.



by:

I purchased these tire chains from etrailer due to their amazing customer service. they arrived quickly and are very heavy duty. They do not have the cam chain tensioners, which is why i bought these. I will be using these for off road and did not want a cam that could possibly loosen. I have already cut them to length. they came packaged really well. thanks again etrailer......

Prompt delivery from etrailer. Received them today after ordering just a few days ago. Haven’t used them yet but they appear to be well made. Have a trip to Colorado planned in a week or so, so maybe I’ll get a chance to put them to work.



by:

Haven't used my chains yet but did a kind of "dry" fit. They look like they should work on my 285/75-r18 Toyo open country ATII's. Customer service was great and shipping was fast and prompt. Look forward to dealing with these folks again.

They are heavy duty sized chains!! Have not test fitted yet. Disappointed there is no reusable bag as mentioned in the description. The sack they came in had to be cut open making it not reusable anymore.

    Although none of the fit options we offer for the 35/12.5-18 tire size are cables, we do offer several choices of tire chains. The most versatile set we offer for your size is the # TC3831 from Titan Chain. This chain set is designed for use on or off road, and would be an excellent choice for deep snow and icy conditions. I'd also recommend a set of adjusters, part # TCMA2 which will do a great job of keeping the chains tightly in place on your tires.

  • Can I Use Snow chains for 2016 Ford F-250 with 20 Wheels?
    There are some options for snow chains that will fit the tires on your 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but according to the owner's manual, you should not use snow chains with 20" wheels. Normally, this is for clearance issues. If the fit of the tires within the wheel well is too tight, it could cause issues with turning clearance, damage your wheel wells or make contact with other parts of your truck if there is too much slack in the chains.

    I can definitely help! For a great pair of tire chains for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK with 35/12.5-18 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires # TC3831CAM.

  • On and Off Road Tire Chains for LT295/65R20 Tires
    I did some checking and for 295/65-20 tires you can use sizes 3231 or 3831. For the 3231 size I recommend # TC3231SHD which can be used for both on-road and off-road applications. For the 3831 size I recommend # TC3831 which also can be used for both on-road and off-road applications. There are a lot of tire sizes in between the compatible sizes listed for these tire chains that just don't show up. But resources have indicated that these 2 sizes will work with your tires.

    For "off road" chains that fit your 275/65-20 sized tire you can use the Pewag # PWE32315 ladder style chains with steel square links. Additionally you could use Titan # TC3831 chains. These will also be suitable for deep snow.. You will want to check your vehicles owners manual or with your Ford Dealership for vehicle specific instructions to see if it is safe to use snow tire chains on your Ford F-250.

  • What Off-Road Tire Chains with V-Bars do You Recommend for a 35x12.5-17 Tire?
    While we do have some great off-road tire chains with V-bar studs, we do not have any that also have cam tighteners like the # PWH2821SC. This is because all tire chains with cam tighteners are not rated for off-road use due to the construction. However, the lack of cam tighteners will not affect the fitment of the chains as long as the chains are properly tightened. For a great set of V-bar off road chains that fit your 35/12.5-17 tires, I strongly recommend using the Titan Chain Snow...
