Installation

Cable chain installation Step 2

2. Reach around to the back of the tire and fasten the rear side cable by running the end with the metal stops through the eye of the hook on the opposite end.


Cable chain installation Step 3

3. Run any excess side cable through the metal clip.


Cable chain installation Step 4

4. Repeat this process on the front side of the tire.


Cable chain installation Step 5

5. Drive forward 1 car length, then check the chain and hand tighten it again if needed.


You can use rubber or chain adjusters (sold separately) to increase the tension on the chains for a tighter fit.


Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large, aftermarket tires - may require Class S chains.


SAE Class S Clearances

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself.

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

2018 Dodge Ram Pickup

Purchased Titan Tire Chains for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - Square Link part TC3229S for a 2018 Ram 2500 with OEM 275/70/R18 tires. These are great chains and very heavy-duty for wide base tires. I mounted them on the rear axle of the Ram and discovered the chain in close proximity to the P-Brake cable, too close for my comfort. I believe the wide base chains are too wide for these OEM tires and fit was pretty loose. One could gain more clearance near the E-Brake by attaching the inside hook to the end (last) link. Then using a chain a tightener do your best to take up all the outside slack. I just was not comfortable with the overall fit so I send these chains back. Very painless return made easy by etrailer because they emailed a return UPS label. After reviewing tech info and reviews I purchased Titan Alloy Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link part TC2533 for the 2018 Ram 2500. These are regular duty and a better fit. These chains offer a lot more clearance for the P-Brake cable. They are a cleaver design, have great carrying case and are fairly quick to install. I have not purchased winter tires for this vehicle so the Ram need chains to pull a travel trailer up and down our snow-covered road.

Don't buy these chains. Ladder chains are inferior to Z-type or diamond-pattern chains, and are occasionally prohibited on certain icy highways. These are also of low quality construction. I had an issue where the chain got bent around itself (and my axle), so it could not be removed, and had to be cut off my car.

I've used the cable snow chains with steel rollers in Colorado when the DOT announced chain laws over the radio. It does its job of keeping the vehicle on the road and it's easy to put on the wheels. Great for emergency use if caught in ice or snow. I keep two pairs of chains in the car just in case we run into increment weather. As to the different brands, I'll have to see which one lasts longer when they are used. Etrailer is a great place to shop.

Thanks so much for your assistance in compliance with our new traction law on I70 through the Colorado mountains. Your site was easy to use in sizing chains, ordering with fast, efficient delivery. Additionally the installation video was very helpful for those of us new to the process.

Cables are compact for fitting in low profile areas like my wife's Honda Accord. Only issue is that the size recommended, I'm on the last rung of the cable and not able to attach the extra safety loop. It still seems very secure though. The deeper the snow the better, as it lessens road vibration. In PA we had ice and about 5 inches of snow on the roads. I went everywhere better than the 4x4's were making out. Thousands cheaper than buying a new truck. More $$$ for my hotrod fund. CUSTOMER SERVICE was EXCELLENT and 5 star! I even received a follow up email and phone call. I'm in sales and can't say this even happens anymore. Thank you !

These chains are a safety feature to be carried in my wife's trunk so IF & WHEN we do need them we will have them handy. This works along the same principle as having a spare tire in your trunk. When you have an unexpected flat tire you are so thankful you have a solution to your problem with you. Thanks, Michael

These chains are awesome, super easy to install and they work great. We had some snow recently and these were exactly what I needed, I was able to get up the hill near my house when 4x4 trucks couldn't.

Good looking product. Having chains in the trunk during winter travel is a must here in CA. CHP will turn you around in a second and you will have to hunt for chains who knows where, if you don't plan ahead. A great insurance policy to have these in the trunk, even if you don't use them. The set I bought for another car never got used, but I don't consider them a waste of money.

Ask the Experts about this Titan Chain Tire Chains

  • Do I Really Need To Use an Extra Tensioner With My Snow Tire Chain?
    While the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains # TC1034 'technically' don't need chain adjusters or separate tensioners, I highly recommend them. Especially since they don't have a self-tensioning system like the Konig CG9 # TH00023100 or even cam tighteners. These cable tire chains are designed to be tightened by adjusting only the front and the back connections. Without a tightener, you'll have to go back and forth until you fine-tune the tightest fit, and even that fit has a wiggle...

  • Recommended Class S Tire Cables For 2003 Honda CR-V
    I researched the CR-V owner's manual and found the same information you said you found. It clearly states you can use 'S' rated cables but not chains on your front tires. The cables I recommend for your Honda are the Titan Chain Cable Snow Chains, part # TC1034. These have a ladder pattern steel rollers, which gives you a smoother ride than typical chains do. To make sure the cables stay secure on the wheels I recommend using tire chain adjusters like part # TCMA2. As a rule...

    For your 2006 Ford Taurus SE with 215/60-16 tires you are going to want to use the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains part # TC1034 which are pretty much the same as the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1038 but a different brand.

  • Will Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains fit 2014 Nissan Sentra, 205-55/16 Size Tires
    The Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains # TC1034 will fit the 205/55-16 size tires on the 2014 Nissan Sentra. These cables will help provide traction in light snow and the low profile will offer a smooth ride. The Sentra's owner's manual requires that Class S chains be used, and the # TC1034 cables comply with that requirement. Per the owner's manual, chains or cables should only be installed on the front wheels. Rubber adjusters are recommended to use with these cables. I recommend...

  • Tire Chains for a 2014 Forester with 225/60-17 Tires and a 2015 Impreza with 205/55-16 Tires
    For your 2014 Subaru Forester with 225/60-17 tires you will need to use the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains part # TC1038 and for your 2015 Subaru Impreza with 205/55-16 tires you will need to use the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains part # TC1034. The Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains part # TC1038 will not fit both tire sizes. These will be your most cost effective options.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains Compatible With 2014 Chevy Spark
    The Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - Steel Rollers - 1 Pair # TC1022 is not the same as the # TC1034. They have the same cross chain dimensions so the clearances required on the top and inner sidewall are the same, but they fit different size tires. There is some overlap, so the # TC1022 cable chains will fit both the 185/55R15 and 195/55R15 size tires that are the factory sizes of your 2014 Chevy Spark. For this fit, you will also need the rubber tire tensioners...

  • Correct Titan Cable Tire Chain for my 2020 Toyota Camry with Tire Size 235/45R18
    Yes unfortunately part # TC1034 is not a fit for the 235/45R18 tires. Instead use the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern part # TC1042. These are a larger chain and confirmed to fit your 2020 Toyota Camry with your tire size. Be sure to check your owner's manual for any specific rules you need to follow when using chains to prevent any vehicle damage.
