Installation

1. Drape the chain over both tires of your dual-tire set-up, making sure that the center chain is between the tires and that the side chain with the lever is on the outside. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

2. Reach around behind the tires and fasten the ends of the chain together.

3. Move back to the front of the tires and fasten the ends of the chain together using the built-in lever.

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 chains, 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

The product that I ordered was back ordered from the Manufacturer. etrailer.com customer service staff kept me informed about the situation and made sure that I received my items prior to the departure on my trip. Customer Service is the most important thing a company can offer on items that are available from several vendors and I have to say the team at etrailer.com is outstanding.

I just got them two days ago, I have not put them on, used them or has it snowed. Although I love etrailers easy to use web site, prices and service I can never understand why they try to rush the review. I cannot imagine it is helpful to anyone for me to say they are bright and shiny and possible would work well if I had a chance to use them.

Super fast delivery of a well packaged heavy set of dual wheel tire chains. Very pleased, I will do business with etrailer again.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I know iron. 17 yrs trucking, mostly doubles across Montana into the Dakotas. Chained up a lot.
Pictures show what you get with this set I bought for my 2005 Tahoe. Heavy gauge chains w/triple cam locks w/long wrench for excellent leverage to get cams tight. Tight cams mean links don't "slap" pavement which causes increased wear. They arrived today so not used yet. However, for my application they will last a lot longer than those cheaper; light gauge, "disposable" chains, use once and throw away after you pay a tow bill.


Comments
No opportunity to use them yet.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


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 Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Needed these chains for a snowboarding trio this December. Installed them in my yard to make sure they fit, and figure out which link worked best. Now that i know what link to use, next time it should only take sbout 10 min to put them on. I really like how they stay away from my wheels so should not scrstch them. My yard was very soft from recent rain and you can see how well the chains dig into the mud. Should be really good on snow/ice.

Good chains!

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I used these on a 2wd open diff F150 with a camper. The traction difference is amazing! I never lost traction! If you’re on a pass that warns “chains or AWD”, don’t go without chains or off road tires. I puttered along at 30 in the unplowed lane watching a clown in an AWD BMW slide everywhere in the plowed slush, holding up traffic.
Anyway, the chains themselves. I’ve used diamond pattern chains with a cable on the inside and fancy nonsense on the outside before. The cable always collects snow, and the multiple connections on the outside is confusing. These ladder chains were easy and simple to put on and take off. I used tensioner bungees also. You will get a bumpy ride, but it smooths out as you speed up. Anyone that claims ladder chains don’t have lateral grip hasn’t used them and doesn’t understand the physics of why chains help.
Great for going up a pass periodically, but not something I’d use daily.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


These chains are amazing! I use them on a 12 passenger van and they install very quickly and easily. I have driven on unplowed roads with 2' snow drifts and have hauled trailers through muddy fields without getting stuck. I highly recommend them.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Good quality. The Cam style is worth any extra money if so required and is the way to go

etrailer was the best price I could fine, they even beat [online]. Shipping was free, what a bargain for a heavy duty set of Light Truck snow chains !


Comments
Great, they are holding up well, easy to put on and take off, the Cam style tighteners are the only way to go ! The Cams take up any slack and tighten the chains to the point where you almost dont need the bungie style chain tighteners, but I use them anyway because I like them tight with no play on my M&S Tires.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I've had very positive experience with this company. Last winter I ordered cable-chains from another provider. They weren't up to the task I needed and one set broke pretty quickly. I then ordered a single set (two tires) of chains from etailer to replace the cable-chain that snapped. The purchasing process was seamless, they arrived quickly and they were of very high quality. They took me through the rest of a challenging winter season.

With another winter now approaching, I just ordered a 2nd set so I can install them on all four tires. I won't bother to try to use the cable-chains.

Good company, good product.

All is good so far. Will be going into a 2nd full season with these changes

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I used it 1 time for roughly 15 miles on I70 in Colorado when required by law and found I had several links broken. I called etrailer about this and they said there was nothing they could do because they sat in my toolbox to long and were out of any warranty timeline.


Comments
These chains do have a 30-day limited warranty time frame. Breakage can happen with the chains if they hit bare pavement or if driven over 25 mph while installed. If you hear or feel anything off like a chain hitting your vehicle, for instance, immediately pull over and address the issue. Also avoid sudden starts and stops, which can cause your wheels to spin or lock up.

I ordered the chains with tensioners, what I got was chains with the welded cross bars on them.Being that a big storm was coming in two days I installed them and went on with my day.


Comments
These chains should definitely have the cam tighteners built into the chains. It sounds like you have received the incorrect set and I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


We had previously purchased chains from etrailer that worked great, but we upsized the wheels/tires of the plow truck and needed larger chains. So we bought these chains and used them to enlarge the four previous chains. The new ones did exactly what we wanted them to do! I have always had great success ordering from etrailer and highly recommend your company. Great service and great value!!

  • Recommended Snow Chains for 255/85-16 Sized Dually Tires with 3/4 Inch Gap Inbetween
    Your 255/85-16 sized tires are each about 10 inches wide. For 20 inches of tire plus roughly 3/4 of an inch in between I recommend a chain that will cover at a least a 21 inch tire. Both the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Dual Tires # TC4231 and # TC4231CAM (with cams) are designed for tires up to 22 inches. So these will both be a great fit. The difference of the two are going to be the cam fasteners of the # TC4231CAM chains. These will make the chains easier to install and tighten....

  • Are Titan Dually Tire Chains # TC4231 Sold in Pairs
    Yes the Titan Tire chains part # TC4231 that you referenced come with a pair of chains, one for each side of your truck's dually rear axle.

  • Dually Snow Chain Recommendation for Tire Size 245/75R17
    For a set of dually chains confirmed to fit your 245/75R17 tires you would want the Titan chains part # TC4231CAM. These are a twist link set of chains that will provide excellent traction. There are no Pewag dually chains or square links confirmed to fit your size in a dually setup, but these chains will fit and work great.

  • How Many Sets of Tire Chains Come with Titan Chain Snow for Dual Tires # TC4231CAM
    The Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Dual Tires # TC4231CAM comes with a set of 2 chains for two dually style rear wheel setups. It does kind of look like 4 sets of chains though for each side has basically two sets connected to make fitting over the dually wheel setup easy. So long story short...you get two sets of chains that cover all four tires on a dually axle.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2015 Ford F-350 Dually
    In regards to using tire chains on a 2015 Ford F-350 Dually, it's always best to use chains on both tires as opposed to just the two outside ones. They will be a bit more challenging to install but the increases grip and traction will be worth it in the long haul. I recommend Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Dual Tires part # TC4231CAM which come with cam tighteners for easy tensioning.

  • Are There Only Snow Tire Chains For Dually 245/70R19.5 and 255/70R22.5 Tires
    There are indeed only snow tire chains and no other type of alternative for dually 245/70R19.5 and 255/70R22.5 tires. So there is going to be a bit of time involved with putting the chains on, but it can be made slightly easier by going with chains that have cam tightening on them already: - 245/70R19.5 Tires: Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Dual Tires # TC4231CAM - 255/70R22.5 Tires: Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Dual Tires # TC4239CAM

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 2005 Ford F-350 Dually 4WD
    For your Ford F-350 dually 4WD, you do not need to use snow tire chains on the front. I cannot access your owner's manual, but most manuals say not to use them on the front tires of a truck. I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Dual Tires - Ladder Pattern - Twist Link - 1 Axle Set # TC4231CAM if you have 245/75-17, 265/70-17, or 275/65-18 size dually tires.

  • Tire Chain Use on Tandem Axle Horse Trailer with Electric Brakes
    If your tandem axle horse trailer has brakes on both axles then ideally you will want to install compatible tire chains on both axles, all four tires. This will do more to avoid the trailer trying to get ahead of you (!) on a slippery road surface. Even if you do not need the chains to slow the trailer they will still help to avoid lateral movement of the trailer on the road. Laws vary by state concerning use of tire chains on trailers. California and Oregon, for example, require chains...

    There are a few different styles of tire chains which have a different benefits. The V-bar chains are really great for icy conditions as they break up ice well. The square link chains are great for deep snow, and twist links are lower profile and rounder so they provide a smoother ride quality. Diamond pattern is also a bit smoother too since the links are angled across the tops of the tire. They also provide great turning traction too since the chain doesn't go perfectly across the top...
