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.


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

Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Links - 1 Pair - TC3835

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (445 Customer Reviews)

The V-bar studs on these tire chains bite into the ice to give you superior traction, while the ladder-pattern design assists with effective starts and stops. Durable low-carbon steel twist links also offer excellent grip in deep snow.

I bought a pair of twist link (TC3235) for my front tires and V-Bars (TC3835) for my rear tires, so writing a combined review. The V-Bars have more traction but my front end doesn't have as much clearance so I opted for the twist links in the front.  I've now used these offroad 4 times, and once briefly onroad during a major ice storm that left all of our roads with skating rink type ice.  
First - both chains fit 37" x 12.5 R18 tires perfectly.  This is despite the fitment not being listed on etrailer.com and the etrailer CS rep telling me they wouldn't fit.  The Titan catalogue / website does list 37x12.5R18. 
Second - two pair of chains *just* fit in a milwaukee packout "Compact Tool Box" (model No: 48-22-8422).  There isn't a wasted inch of space.  After using them, I dry them in my garage, then douse them in WD-40 before putting them back in the packout.  These chains are made from an alloy that prioritizes strength over corrosion resistance, so surface rust appears pretty quickly on them.  Be warned that lifting all four chains together is heavy.    
Third - They give amazing offroad traction.  The only way you're getting stuck is by getting high-centered.  You will not run out of traction if you have weight on your tires.  However, it is easy to get high centered when using these in the snow if you aren't careful.  Don't spin your tires, or your axles and frame rails will be holding the vehicle while your wheels hang in the air.  
Fourth - I would only recommend using these onroad in very limited circumstances. During an ice storm I had to get a neighbor to the hospital. We live on an extremely steep hill and the roads had 1" of clear ice on them.  With the chains it was like the ice wasn't there.  But the whole truck vibrated a lot.  And it probably prematurely wore the chains.  If I drove faster than ~15-20 mph it really rattled the truck.  (offroad in the snow I'll drive 40+ mph no problem with these.  but driving on hard surfaces causes a lot of vibration).

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I had high hopes for my purchase since there was great reviews. Unfortunately that was not my experience. First issue, only part of order showed up when delivered. Reached out to etrailer to investigate. A few days later they shipped out the other set of chains I ordered. That issue was resolved. Second issue, I knew I would need to trim back the extra links on my chains, I was shocked as to how much I needed to cut off. It included a section of the ladder chain. Which ultimately wasn’t really an issue, I just think it should be clear this is a cut to fit tire chain, not a trim. I double checked the website, the canvas bag, and my tires, this was an appropriate set for those tires. Ultimately I’m very satisfied with the product. Not satisfied with seller/delivery.


Comments
Well that is odd. These chains show a confirmed fit for all models of the Toyota Tundra with the tire sizes 26570-16. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to look into this for you.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


Received it 2 days back and it broke on its very first use within 10 mins of driving. Not sure if this is a design defect or poor quality of material. I tried following instructions very closely so doubt if anything was wrong in the way it was mounted. There was ample clearance in wheel well and it seems the chain just could not take stress.


Comments
I know that these chain are made of a low carbon steel and are strong chains. I am not sure as to what happened with this one however I will have Customer Service reach out to you for assistance.

A link was already rusted when received. Question the quality standards if it is already rusting and made it to the customer.

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

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I ordered the v bar link snow chains because they work. This is my second set on two different size tires. As an long haul trucker , I admit these chains grab and dig into ice and snow, and they install just as easy as all others. But it's the v bar grip that is the difference. Drive slow with common sense and you will know what I'm talking about.

Chain fit well for this application. A bit disappointed it took 15 days for them to arrive.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I’m impressed. These tire chains are the real deal. I looked at various options online, Amazon, etc. I found etrailer. First, the web page is packed with info, tutorials, etc. once I ordered there was continuous communication. I downgraded from a 4x4 to a 4x2, and drive up to Buffalo, NY, from coastal Carolina. These chains are impressive and will provide traction and ease of mind going through the snow belt areas along Lake Erie and parts of the blue ridge mountains. I’ve hit heavy snow on this trip and wished I had a good tire chain. This resolved it. Installing is a breeze be sure to get the tire chain adjusters with them! Excellent service!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


These worked Great. I got them for a job I had on top of a ski run where it was a pretty regular occurance to have a foot or more of snow dropped throughout the day and then just a bunch of mud the next.
These are easy to install, although I recomend a couple practice runs where its warm and dry, and easy to remove.
They took a beating and dug through the deep and the icy stuff to get me up some seriously steep slopes as well as had the bite to help me stop getting down the hill.
I would recomend these over the light weight version to anyone. They hold up better and are eaiser to use plus they work great.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


They will fit a NEW 275/65/18 Goodyear Territory. It is a snug fit. pretty sure I'll need rubber tensioners but not sure. I'll try them on the 245/75/17 full studded Goodyear Winter tires but expect they won't be snug.

These are very heavy duty chains compared to my old 9.50/16.5 chains V bar 35 years ago.




by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


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.

Saved my @$$ last year from being stuck out on the lake ice fishing! Almost had to make an embarrassing call in to get some kind of vehicle with tracks on it to pull me through a monstrous slush hole. Dug down around the tires, wrapped the chains on and turned my truck into a beast!!! Highly recommend if your venturing off the beatin path!

I called etrailer and talked to Joanne. I've never bought tire chains before so I had no clue what to look for. So Joanne talked to me step by step and helped me find the right set of chains for my truck. She even told me the date they would arrive. I got them a day early. I will definitely shop them for any of my needs- and hope I get to talk to Joanne again!:)

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I used these chains on all 4 tires following 16 inches of snow and packed ice on mountain roads while elk hinting. We were forced to abandon camp and drive on treacherous roads to get back to lower elevations. The V-bars provided great traction on ice while navigating very steep and dangerous curves.




by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


The chains and tensioners work great, but the tire sizes listed for the chains were not 100% accurate. The chains required modification before they would fit my ATV tire size correctly. After removing one cross chain and shortening the outside chains, the chains fit perfectly and perform flawlessly in the snow.




by:

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


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

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains


I used these all winter, 6 days a week, up and down 5 miles of ice-covered mountain road. V-bar only way to go. But, nothing saves you on rain-covered ice. Just stay home and wait it out. With this kind of use, lasts only one season before rust takes over.

  • Recommended Snow Chains to Help Plowing Truck with 35x12.5x20 Tires
    I have a solution for you, but the Glacier chains you were looking at are not a confirmed fit on a 35 x 12.5 x 20 tire. I'll also add that there are not going to be any chains that we have available that will protect your wheels/rims with tires this size, so there is no guarantee that a chain isn't going to scratch them if they're not properly secured.

  • What V-Bar Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 35x12.5-20 Tires?
    We have the chains for you! For chains with V-bars on your 35x12.5-20 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires # TC3835CAM. These chains not only come with V-bars; they also come with cam adjusters that make it extremely easy to tighten/fit the chains to your tires. The cams also provide continuous tightening during transport. With the cams, these chains cannot be used for off-roading. For tensioners, I recommend the # TCMA3 to take the headache out...

    The Titan Tire Chains part # TC3835CAM that you referenced have been confirmed as a fit for the tire size 35 x 12.50 x 20 so they would fit and work well. These are a V-bar chain that will do a great job in icy conditions. You will need to check the owners manual of the vehicle you plan to install these on to be sure there are no tire chain restrictions.

    Unfortunately, we don't have that type of information available to us. Even our tire chain manufacturers don't have that type of information on hand. What I can do is provide you a listing of snow chains we offer that fit a 35 x 12.5-15 tire size, which you can see by using the provided link. For deep snow and ice, I'd recommend the # TC3835 from Titan Chain which can be used on or off road. Optional adjusters like # TCMA2 will apply constant tension on the chains for a secure fit.

    Yes we do offer tire chains that fit the tire size 35x12.50R20 that you have which you can see all of them at the attached link on this page. Our most popular option is the Titan chains part # TC2335 which install easily, provide great traction, are smoother riding due to the diamond pattern, and are priced great. If you were looking for a V-bar setup like the chains you mentioned you'd want the # TC3835 instead. V-bar chains do great in icy conditions as they break the ice up well.

  • 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.
