Titan Chain Tire Chains

  • Titan Chain
  • Tire Chains
  • Drive On and Connect
  • On Road or Off Road
  • Steel Twist Link
  • Deep Snow
  • Mud
  • Class S Compatible
  • Manual
  • No Rim Protection

These durable, low-carbon steel chains provide excellent traction in deep snow. The rounded twist links limit jarring, and the ladder pattern assists with effective starts and stops. Great for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance.


Features:

  • Tire chains give you extra traction in snow
  • Rounded twist links form cross chains
    • Excellent traction in deep snow
    • Adequate grip on ice
    • Limited jarring compared with square links of the same size
  • Ladder-pattern chains assist with effective starts and stops
  • Manual installation and adjustment
    • No cams to come undone when you are driving in reverse or navigating rough terrain
    • Rubber or chain adjusters (sold separately) are recommended to provide a tight, secure fit
  • Low-carbon steel construction is strong and durable
  • SAE Class S chains are designed for vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance
  • Reusable plastic storage box included


Specs:

  • Application: 14" - 19" tires (for exact sizes, see below)
  • Link thickness: 0.177" (4.5 mm)
  • Maximum speed rating: 30 mph
  • Quantity: 2 tire chains
  • 30-Day limited warranty


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.

Installation

Installation Step 1

1. Drape the chain over the tire, making sure 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.)


Installation Step 2

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


Installation Step 3

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


Installation Step 4

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

2010 Toyota Camry

I have an ‘07 toyota camry tire size 215/60/16 and was able to install the chains on both of the drive tires in less than 7 mins by myself. I could've bought snow cables but based on my research, the camry is not low profile, plus the snow chains have more “bite” traction vs the cables! Etrailer is my go to place for auto accessories!!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Id give a 10 star, but 5 star was the max, extremely pleased with my experience with the purchase.

I have been happy with the use of this product. It fits right with the extra purchased suspenders. Only had to use them once but it was a good use. I pulled these out a few days ago looked them over and I was happy there wasn't any evidence of rust or serious flaw. After a year --I can honestly say that these chains did the job. I never review a product quickly unless I get a decent amount of use but after a year these are still like new. Sometimes chains go bad after one use, these did not, they are still good to go if needed.

Haven't had to use the tire chains I bought yet. The only problem I had when I got the order was the plastic container that the trailer chains were in was broken. Hope to use them soon. Thank you for asking,

Sorry this is not a product review, as we haven't had snow since I got the chains. But it is comforting to know they are in my trunk. I did want to say that I had excellent experience with etrailer. The communication and support was stellar, and the product arrived very well packed on the day that was quoted.

Planning on a trip very soon. I found that I should have snow chains for our safety. I checked etrailer.com and not ony found what I need, but at a very good price. I ordered and hoped it would arrive in time. Low and behold, not only was it a quick delivery, but was way faster than I thought it would take. etrailer.com has never let me down anytime I have needed them. I highly recommend them.

I have not actually had the opportunity to put on and use my new snow chains yet. But, I am happy with the shipping process, although they had arrived one day later than the date that was suggested by UPS. I'm sure that my snow chains will work just fine when I need to use them for the first time. No ice on our local area roads right now...

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Delivered fast, popped these on to get gamiliare with them and actyally tested them out on a road that was snow packed solid ice, my truck would not spin... i tried to make it, but the chains would not allow it in my situation. Yes chains ride rough.. real rough to be honest, but its better than not making it to your destination. They are heavy ( a big pro) feel like excellent quality and would recommend them to anyone who lives in a state that allows them.


Comments
I have only used them twice since i bought these, how ever they have held up great in storage, not a single spot of rust, or anything. They are still in brand new condition

Very easy installation (watch the video on the etrailer website) and excellent fit on a 2010 Tundra. I plan to visit Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana in the winter and most routes have a few mountain passes.

I can say that Ive used the chains intermittently and found them to be durable, well-fitting, and most importantly, very easy to install

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Fantastic customer service. Ordered on a Friday afternoon, received by Tuesday, left to a snowy camp on Thursday. Chains did not list my tire size on the bag but included them on the website. Tried the sizing before I left home and they fit perfectly. Received almost 2 feet of snow and chained the fronts and backs in order to pull a 30' trailer up a nasty forest road. Chains were easy to put on and worked like a dream. Totally recommended, especially for the price.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


I bought the chains after one winter morning when I could not get up a hill near my home. Living in Colorado one day can be a blizzard and the next sunny with snow melt off in a few days. Since my purchase I have not had the need to put on the chains but I know that they will fit and I am prepared. I gave an average rating for that reason.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


Cam lock is a must. These are not your father's tire chains. I ordered these from etrailer because I knew I would get the right fit for my vehical and a quality product. Their customer service is excellent. Note: the fit of tire chains is everything. If it is to tight it will be nearly impossible to install. Too loose, you may throw a chain ripping out your brake lines, destroying your CV joints and other suspension parts. Plus having to find the chain some where back down the road if it is not wrapped around your suspension and then reinstall it on the road. So size is everything and please use chain tensions.

Review from a similar Twist Link Ladder in Tire Chains


As with everything I get from etrailer my new snow chains arrived in an extremely timely manner. Had a few questions during the ordering process which were answered with a single, helpful, friendly, concise phone call. My vehicle is equipped with oversized tires so I had to use the tire size calculator to get the correct fit for the tires I am using. The tire calculator was right on. Perfect fit. Perfect wheel well clearance when mounted on front or back. I needed type S chains for my commuter vehicle to make the 5 mile trip to the main road on those 12" snow/ freezing rain mornings not only comfortable, and possible, but also as safe as possible. Long story short if you need snow chains of any size or style etrailer is you store.

Ask the Experts about this Titan Chain Tire Chains

  • How Fast Can you Go with Tire Chains Installed
    With the Titan Chains like the # TC1138 installed we typically recommend a speed rating of between 30-35 miles per hour as the maximum speed. There are no chains that will allow you to travel faster than that. Also, if you are in snowy enough conditions to call for chains you probably shouldn't be going faster than 30-35 MPH even with the extra traction that chains provide.

  • Tire Chain Availability for Tire Sizes 245/40R18 and 255/60/R17
    Yes we can help you get setup with tire chains for both vehicles but the sizes of the tires are different enough that one set isn't going to fit both. For the 245/40R18 the # TC1138 that you referenced is a fit and would work well. For a similar set that fits the 255/60R17 we have the part # TC3010 which is a confirmed fit. Be sure to check the owners manual of both vehicles to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Class S Tire Chains For 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I did some research on your 2009 Subaru Outback Wagon and found that only Class S tire chains are to be used, and they are only to be used on the front tires. Tire chains are size specific so you will want to know the tire size before choosing tire chains for your Outback. From our fit guide I found that there are 3 typical tire sizes on the Outback so I will give a recommendation based on that. The tire sizes are 205/50-17, 225/55-17, and 225/60-16. If you have a tire size that...

  • Are Tensioners Recommended For Titan Tire Chains
    We sure do. The tensioners will help keep the chains tight to the tire and centered. They're pretty inexpensive and easy to used, so there's really no good reason not to use them. For the # TC1138 Twist Link chains, I'd recommend using the # TCMA2 tensioners which fit 14-24 inch rims. The owner's manual for your 2006 Toyota Sienna recommends class S chains like the # TC1138, and goes on to recommend they be installed on the front wheels only. I've linked to product videos for the...

  • Can Snow Tire Chains for 2004 Chevy Venture be Used to Get Out of Mud
    You can use any method you like to get you out of mud though there are a couple of things to note. The first is that you will need chains that have an off-road designation and the other is that you need to follow the guidelines for using chains that is in the owner's manual of your 2004 Venture which states you should use Class S chains on the front tires only. There is one chain that fits the bill on the size 215/70-15 or 215/70-15 tires that are common to '04 Ventures, the Titan Chain...

  • Recommended Snow Chains for a 1998 Chevy Astro Van
    If you have the 215/75-15 size tires on your 1998 Chevrolet Astro then I recommend using the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXP570 because they are easy to install and feature square links in a diamond pattern for great traction. For a more cost-effective option I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC1138 which uses twist links in a ladder pattern. These aren't quite as easy to install but they will get the job done. Attached is a review video of the...

  • Comparing Titan Tire Chains TC1254 and TC1138 for Use on 2015 Toyota Camry
    Titan Tire Chain Sets # TC1254 and # TC1138 differ in certain construction features and in the tire sizes they will fit. Chain set # TC1254 has links that are 5.3mm thick and that fit 14- to 16-inch tires. Chain set # TC1138 uses thinner 4.5mm links that make it suitable on vehicles with 14- to 19-inch tires that require this special low-profile S-Class type chain.

  • Tire Chains that Will Fit 225/60-16 and 225/60-17 Tires on a 2000 and 2013 Subaru Outback
    The Thule tire chains will not fit both tire sizes but you could use the Glacier chains # PWPLC1138. They do fit 225/60-16 and 225/60-17 tires. You can also use Titan chains # TC1138. For these chains I recommend adding the rubber adjusters, # TCMA2. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manuals for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have included some video links and a link to our help article on tire chains for you to the right.
