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 both tires of your dual-tire setup, making sure that the center chain is between the tires and that the V-bars are facing out. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

2. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution.

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

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



by:

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.

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

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).

These are first rate quality HD tire chains. They're a good fit on my tires. As suggested, I practiced putting them on for first time in dry weather. From watching video instructions, I was able to attach and adjust chains w/out issue. I tightened them with three 15 " rubber bungees. Haven't had to use them yet.



by:

The chains work as expected. Got me out of the mud twice (2wd pickup). Don't spin and dig holes before applying or you won't be able to stretch the chain around the sunken in tire. I needed to jack it up once to get the chains on then they worked like a charm. I have not used in snow or on road.



by:

Never owned tire chain so I'm not an expert but they are easy to install. Note I did this in my dry driveway. I hope I never need to uses them but if I do I think they will work fine. Thanks etrailer for the awesome service you provided.



by:

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.



by:

Chains worked great on my 2014 1500 chevy. Used on a late season elk hunt. Easy to take on and off by myself. Had a bunch of refreeze on top of deep snow, and these kept my tires on the trail and not sliding off the mountain.



by:

Great chains when you need the traction!



by:

We just finished two years of full-time travel around the US. I bought two sets of chains and they fit snuggly, as expected, on my LT 275/65 R18 tires. I also bought two types of chain binders to keep them tight and positioned correctly in different conditions. So, that's 4 chain & spring binders AND 4 rubber binders ... just in case. I mounted them all to test the fit and practice my skills and drove 4 mi. on a dirt road. All went well. As we zig zag around the US it's a smart move to carry these chains and binders with us. Many states in the west have highways and roads that mandate use of chains. I'm glad I didn't need to use them last year but I'm confident we're ready if need be. Thanks to etrailer for great documentation and Fabulous customer service!



by:

I bought these because they claim to be durable enough to be used off-road. The first time I used them off-road (albeit a very difficult trail), they broke and proceeded to rip my emergency brake line off of my rear driver side before I had noticed they broke. Not exactly the best experience I've had with chains.



by:

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.



by:

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



by:

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



by:

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!



by:

Excellent chains. Used them extensively this last November getting up and down a snowed over road and snow/iced over rocky trail up the mountain in CO. They didn’t break on the rocks and got great traction on ice, got me out of several miles of 3ft of snow with ice underneath. I highly recommend the steel spring chain tensions. When properly installed you can get these chains nice and tight. I can only run chains on my rear tires due to upper control arm clearance issues (‘08 Tacoma) so I’m giving my second pair to my brother (‘12 f150) for his rear tires.



by:

Got them for a hunt in colorado in November 2023
Easy to put on and good fit for tires



by:

I am impressed with the Titan Snow Tire Chains I purchased recently. They appear to be well made and sturdy. They fit my tires and were easy to install. The V-Bar links allow me to drive into the woods with the confidence that I will be able to return home safely.



by:

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



by:

Great customer service. I was able to get the tire chains I needed, they arrived on time and they fit perfectly on my tires. Great experience here...



by:

These chains fit well and are working great on our Kubota X1120D that we plow snow with. We plow on a 12% grade that gets icy so chains are necessary. The drive is sand and gravel so aggressive chains are fine. Our snow is usually wet and heavy. I would buy these again. etrailer was very helpful with this purchase as it seems this type of chains are hard to come by so the worked to find a supplier that could provide.



by:

The chains fit just right. The customer service at Etrailer was top notch a 10 They walked me right through the process Thanks Again
