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. 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

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

Far from road friendly. They are very aggressive and have great traction even on just ice.

I got a new set of tire chains for my Toyota Tundra. They were as advertised and delivered on time. I honestly haven't put them on yet, but I was very impressed with the quality. I am almost hoping that the weather gets really nasty for my upcoming hunting trip.

These are the best. Easy application and excellent traction.

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


Had some trouble at first, the set was too large for my tires. I was able to remove one of the cleats and shorten the diameter... All is well now, hope I never have to use them, but nice to know I can.

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


They are nice chains, and they arrived very quickly, so I'll give 1 star for that despite the fact they don't come with a reuseable bag. But the other 4 stars come off because they don't actually fit the tire sizes they indicate they fit. My tires are 265/75-16 on a 2006 Chevy 2500HD. I installed the chains, using the closest link available for the inside and outside catch, then cycled all four cams, and the chains are still too loose. In fact, I could cycle the cams by hand, and didn't even need to use the special tool, that's how loose they are. You can clearly see in the included picture how much slack there is at the keeper since it's hanging lose instead of taunt against the tire like is should be. You can also see that it is connected to the closest link, and that all four cams are tightened. You can even make out the tire size. This isn't an installation problem, or an operator error. This is a "they don't fit what they say they fit" problem. I tried calling etrailer for assistance, but other than verify I had the correct chains for my tire size, all they could do was suggest I get the rubber bungee cord things.

So now I have the outside rubber things coming to try and take up the slack if I actually need to use them during my trip next week. Tire chains specified for a given tire size range should fit. These don't, but I don't have enough time to change them out and have no confidence anything else I ordered would fit better anyway. Later when I have time, I'll remove one of the laterals so I can tighten the chains more, but for $150 I would expect a product that fits. Buyer beware...


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. There can be differences in how a chain will fit on a certain tire size depending on the tire manufacturer. A tire made by Goodyear in a 265 75 R16 size will be slightly different then the same size made by Kenda for example. We always recommend using a set of rubber adjusters with these chains to ensure a snug fit. If your rim size is 14 to 24 then we recommend part # TCMA2

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


Had to use these chains once last season: a cautionary story
User-friendly and intuitive - incredibly easy to use despite the snow coming down, my lack of preparation, and my vehicle being partially off the road.
Efficacy and design - 2wd vehicle in Northern VT…no problem, cut right through the rapidly accumulating snow and lack of road treatment with ease. Barely lost any paint around the fenders despite not having straps to tighten chains around wheels.
10/10, would buy again, glad I still have them for this season, and I should probably check to make sure I’m better prepared…

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


I am pleased with the purchase. May I suggest your install video for this type of chain make note that in some cases, after the draping of the chains over the tires that it can be necessary to drive forward to be able to link the remaining chain to each side. Also, do this for all tires at once, then drive forward. The video shows installer just reaching around the inside/outside of tire and making connections. This was not possible in my case. (265x60x18) You may wish to make note of changing your tire chains to the tire on opposite side, after some use, to ensure equal wear. I am no expert. I just derived info from web to ensure I knew what I was doing in the event I have a problem.

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


These chains work great and look better. We were driving to a trailhead where the road turned into deep hard snow with 1.5 foot deep ruts. We couldn’t proceed because of downed trees. The snow was hard enough that the truck got stuck in 4WD low because it kept digging itself in. Thank goodness I had the chains because once I put them on I was able to grip and turn around with no issue.

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


Boc arrived wet, see pics. Working w Ellen regarding the chains (maybe) being too long. Have to connect to the next crossover in order for them to be tight enuf to stay on) & yes all cams are shortened. Chain excess would slap against the vehicle

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


2 words, Heavy Duty. I haven't gotten to use them yet and hope I never will. But preparing for a hunt, I knew I better have some that fit my truck. I have had chains for all of my rigs before and no stranger to having to chain up. And these appear like they will not disappoint should I have to throw iron.




by:

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


I purchased a set of these chains before last winter and used them to get into my hunting camp in snowy and icy conditions. They went on easy and with the cams, fit very tight. I didn't even use the tensioners that I purchased with them. I purchased another pair this year to have for the front if I ever needed them (it's pretty remote where I use them). Great product and great customer service!

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.


Comments
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!

The tire chains look great and fit nicely. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that no storage box is included.

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


Just got my chains in the mail the other day, very fast shipping and delivery was excellent.
I used the chains for the first time today on my NEW truck and one of the links broke causing one of the cleated ladders to come apart and scratch up the paint on my quarter panel around the wheel well. This all happened in about the first 10 feet that my truck moved and the very first time these chains had been used.
I am happy with the service I have received in the past from etrailer and this time has been no different. Just disappointed in the quality of these chains.

Chains arrived on time, fitted well and got us up a snowy hill on our mountain property with ease.

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


The chains were with excellent quality but after several attempts they would not properly tighten on the tire. I watched the video numerous times and followed the directions but still no fit. I could turn the cams with my hand and some of the chain hooks on the ladders would not seat properly against the side of the tire. I ordered a set without the cams just like chains that I have had success with in the past.

Went on easy, in a practice install. Have not used in the snow yet.

  • Titan Tire Chain Recommendation for a Tire Size 35 x 12.50 x 20
    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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for Tire Size 35x12-20
    For your tire size of 35x12.50/20 I have three similar options for you to consider. The part # TC3835CAM which has V-bar links that help break up ice and is designed for icy conditions. The part # TC3235CAM which has twist links which will provide a smoother ride quality but won't be quite as effective in deep snow as the square link chains part # TC3235SCAM which is the option to go with for deep snow.

    We do have the exact snow tire chains you need, though the Titan Chain snow tire chains you mentioned are not a fit for your 35x12.5R20 tires. Instead, the correct fit for that size tires are the following: - Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TC3835CAM These are the same chains as the ones you asked about, but fit wider tires like yours. They have v-bar studs on the end which ensure the best grip on snow or ice, and have a ladder...

  • Availability of Titan V-Bar Snow Chains for 35x12.5x15 Jeep Tires
    We do indeed offer Titan V-Bar tire chains that fit 35x12.5x15 tires. You'll want part # TC3835CAM, which is sold by the pair. In order to get chains for all 4 wheels, you'll need to order two sets of chains. The chains feature built-in cam lighteners, but rubber adjusters like part # TCMA2 (sold in pairs) would be a good idea as well.

  • Titan Snow Chains for 35x12.5R20 Tires
    I do have what you need however the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams # TC3831CAM referenced in your question are a bit too small for your 35x12.5R20 tires. For the same style Titan chains that will fit your tires you just need the part # TC3835CAM instead. These are confirmed to fit your tires and the V-bar design will provide excellent traction in the snow and ice. Two tire chains are included. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

    I spoke with my contact at Titan Chain and he did say that the Titan Snow Tire Chains # TC3835CAM referenced in your question will physically fit and work on your 12x16.5 size skid steer tires. He said the only potential issue with using low-carbon steel chains like these with skid steer tires is the amount of force tires like these will put on them, especially when making turns.
