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)

Video Transcript for Titan Chain V-Bar Tire Chains for Dual Tires Installation - 2001 Ford F-350

Today on our 2001 Ford F350 with dual rear wheels, we're going to be test fitting the Titan Chain Dual Rear Wheel Snow Tire Chains in the ladder pattern and the V bar length. The part number is TC4821. This is designed to cover both the passenger side and driver's side, so one part number will take care of an entire axle. 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 hooks side up, got 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.

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 on 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 length that we can, or the shortest length we can. We've got one, two, three, four, five to choose from. I'm going to try the third one here.

It doesn't look like it's going to hit the third one, so let's go to the second. Bring that through, close our lever and then we slide our keeper right up on it there to hold it in place for us. Now in our rear connection we used the fourth length, 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 our fifth one, bring that in, cam that down. As you can see, that's going to take the slack out and slide the keeper up to hold it in place. See 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. Your hooks there, we'll have them facing away from our sidewall, rather than in and to 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 test fit of the Titan Chains Snow Tire Chains for dual rear wheels, the ladder pattern and V bar length, part number TC4821. .

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.


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

always
top notch.



by:
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.

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.

I have not used them but the shipping was fast and good just waiting for the snow so I can try them out

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.



by:
2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

I haven't tried out the chains yet but the customer service was fantastic. They let me know that there was a problem getting one item on my order and were able to send the rest of my order, which arrived in just a couple of days.

Have ordered twice already some snow chains for my truck and I can say that its the best customer service. Thanks

Just like the old days a job to put on easy off. But they will do the job!



by:

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.

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


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


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.


Comments
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


Great chains! Killer grip. They go on quickly and I learned which links to select to put on once and go without readjustment. They didn't keep me unstuck during that one storm last March where we had 4' of wet stuff, but I'm still learning how to deal with that much snow (or maybe I should just wait to use a skid). I'm driving an F350 with LT275/70r18 tires and can (usually) push whatever I want, including uphill 15% grade.

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Dual 235/80-17 Wheels
    According to the owner's manual for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500, traction devices such as tire chains are not designed to be used on models with dual rear wheels.

  • What Vehicle Axles Do Snow Chains Install On
    On a 2 wheel drive vehicle you want to at least have chains on the drive axle. If it's a rear wheel drive vehicle then you would go with the rear axle and vice versa for a front wheel drive vehicle. Ideally having chains on all 4 wheels will provide you with the best possible traction for braking, turning and accelerating. Before you install chains on your vehicle you will need to check with the owners manual of the vehicle to determine if there are any restrictions on chain usage. I...

    In order to recommend the correct set of tire chains for the dual rear wheels on your 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 I would need to know which size tires you have.
