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.


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


  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)

Video Transcript for Titan Chain Dual Tire Snow Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Titan Chain dual rear wheel series of snow tire chains. These tires offer a maximum speed rating of 30 miles per hour. With a low carbon steel construction, it's very strong and durable. These are the ladder pattern, as you can see, and the V bar links. This is going to cover both the driver's side and the passenger side of the vehicle for you, so you'll have everything you need to do one axle. These V bar style snow tire chains essentially is the twisted link snow tire chain that's had a V bar welded right onto it. The twisted links already gave great deep snow traction and stuff, but as you can imagine, deep snow, light snow, ice, anything that you're really going to encounter, these chains will really work great for it.

They're going to give us great power when we're stopping, when we're trying to accelerate, especially with the ladder style. As you can see, they're kind of offset, so that's going to give us from just a standard snow tire chain, about twice as much grip. Now on each outside chain, we're going to have a cam style or a lever style closure. We place our chain in here. We'll bring our lever around and then we slide the keeper right up and on to keep our chain secure. As you can see here on the inside chain, we've got the same situation and then in our center, we've got a simple hook style that will hook right into out chain link.

Now that we've gone over all of the features of these chains, we'll show you how to get them installed onto your vehicle. What we're going to do is place our chains on the ground, with the hook side up. We have a smooth side here on the back and the hooks are exposed here on the front. We want these to be facing away from our sidewall, so that smooth side will be riding right up against our tire. We've got them all stretched out here. You want to make sure you don't have any kinks, or any twists, or any tangles to deal with and then we'll grab at two points, about arm distance apart there and we're going to bring them right up and over our wheels. We'll position them so that the middle chain, as you can see, is running right down between both of our wheels there and we'll lay these out so that our middle hook is centered between our tires, our front hook's in front and our rear hook is on the back side.

We'll now just get out as much slack as we can, bring it around to the rear side and now it's going to be time to roll forward slightly about a quarter to a half revolution in our wheel, so that our cams will be here in the rear, where we can make our connections happen. We'll now bring our inner lever up. We'll connect it on the closest link that we can or the shortest link we can. We've got one, two, three, four, five to choose from. I'm going to try the third one here. Doesn't look like it's going to hit the third one, so let's go to the second, get it through, close our lever and then we slide our keeper right up on it there to hold it in place for us.

Now on our rear connection, we used the fourth link, so on the middle and the front, we'll have to use either the third, fourth or fifth. We get a plus or minus of one there. All right, with that connection made, we'll come around here to the front and the same thing will apply here. We're either going to use the third, the fourth or the fifth. It looks like we may be able to use the fourth one there. It's a little tight, so we'll go to the fifth one, bring that in, cam that down. As you can see, that's going to take that slack out and slide the keeper up to hold it in place. Here we've got our rubber tensioner. It's going to have five hooks on it. Try to place these hooks evenly all the way around the outside of our chain, and just like with the chain, we want the hooks facing outward. The hook's there, we'll have them facing away from our sidewall, rather than into it. I'm just going to pull that up, connect into our five points and just like that, we're ready to move forward just a little bit, recheck our chains, make sure we don't have any tension issues, adjust as necessary and we'll be able to hit the road. Now periodically, you will want to check your chains just to make sure nothing's changed and you still have the proper tension. That will complete today's demonstration. .

Have not had to use these chains yet, but I did a practice run of hooking them up. They fit nicely and it was not too hard to install them.

Had to use them on a hill on the property. Went on okay, turned the Ram 3500 into a tank.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

I loaded my 2WD Chevy 3500 dump with a ton of stone. I put the chains on my duals as in eTrailer's video spreading the chain out with V-cleats up, gathering the three lengths across the palms of my hands, and laying it over the tires. Worked like a charm. Put on the rubber bunji ring, hitched to my 14 ton trailer, and pulled it up an 8% incline in snow and mud without slipping. Totally worth it. My truck is worthless without chains in this weather.

- TC4821

Excellent product, well made and a good fit. etrailers web site is very easy to navigate and find the right part for what my application was. the carton was well packaged and shipping was very fast, Although I did order the wrong set of chains the first time due to my error I was able to return them and get a full refund and then reorder the correct chains, but a lesson well learned to pay attention to detail. I have not used the chains yet but I did do a test fit and they are a nice snug fit. I would surely recommend etrailer for your needs.

I purchased these tire chains as an “insurance policy” for bad weather. I’ve not had to use them yet. They look well made and are quality steel. The price was decent and the customer service was excellent.

Product looks great but since I ordered the Snow Chains in August I have not yet had an opportunity(?) to use them. Greg at E-Trailer was very helpful and the Video for Installation was excellent. I have bought many items from e-trailer and have continued to be impressed with service and delivery as well as with the products.

These Chains look sick! Haven't got to use them yet but when the time comes I think that V-Bar link is going to make it feel like i'm driving on dry pavement. No slipping or sliding.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

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.

A year later and still working great - 6 inches of wet, heavy snow to plow - no problems with traction with these chains on the Kubota.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

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.

Chains are still going strong, I make sure the wash and dry them after each season. Would definitely buy again and I definitely recommend the metal spring tensioners.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

Tires chains: why did i wait so long? etrailer.com was easy to deal with as usual. My only complaint is that i had to go to another vendor to buy plastic ramps to ease installation. My neighbor has a pair and they are perfect. I own a second home on a hill in the snow belt of Pennsylvania. After years of plowing, melting snow and ice, sliding off the driveway more times that i can count i stopped plowing the hill and put chains on the four wheel drive parked at the bottom of the driveway. The snow piles up and and truck goes up and down like it is on a dry road. I didn't use the low range once all winter. After a couple of tries the chains are a breeze to mount. No good for dry roads but magic on snow and ice. Worth twice the price.

I should have bought these 20 years ago. I haven’t had to mount chains on the front yet! Saved me 5x the price not plowing the road

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

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.

Its been almost two years, and I still like the chains. Ive driven into the snowy woods a few times this winter and got home with no problem.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

Ordered during the summer to prep for fall hunting with my Lexus GX460, rear only given right clearance in the front. Chains look off-road worthy. I got the metal spring chain tensioner hoping if they are more robust. I will add an update this fall after chasing elk in the CO mountains.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

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.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

I bought these chains based on etrailer videos and [online] videos of others using the Titan Vbar chains. I can tell you that these chains are super aggressive. They got me through 8” or more of semi melted and tracked up snow. I did struggle with traction on the front end, but didn’t have chains on the front wheels. In my Tacoma, I would say I was pushing the limit with snow depth. Pucker factor was pretty high as culverts we’re waiting for my mistakes. Type and condition of snow means everything. These chains are tiptop. What isn’t tiptop is the website vehicle search. I provide my year, make and model and they said the chains would work. They do not fit my tires. They are too big. That being said, I still made them work. They were super tight. Due yourself the favor and double check your tire size. You will be hard pressed to find a more aggressive chain. Love them!

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

These titan snow chains with the v bars are perfect for any cold weather conditions. I’ve used them on my 2000 Nissan Frontier in deep snow and on dirt mountain roads with steep inclines that were covered with about an inch of ice below 5-6inches of snow. 2 pairs of chains would work better for those types of extreme conditions but 1 pair got me where I needed to be! I’ll be ordering an extra set for sure!

- TC2828

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

These chains are well built. My 1 ton truck was in 6” deep snow when I chained up. The truck was able to tractor right up A steep hill. The binder is stout steel, not a stamped piece prone to bending. I used rubber tensioners. The combo worked great. All of my use has been off pavement this far. I bought two sets and would do it again.

- TC3829

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder in Tire Chains

Great quality chains at a great price! I had to get another set of chains for larger tires, this price was comparable to the price I paid for the 17" tires. I have gone through a foot of snow and over thickly covered icy mountain roads with no slipping. I highly recommend the "V" chains for any icy conditions. I'm good to go, just waiting for the snow!
