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 the tire, making sure that the V-bars are facing out.

2. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

3. Fasten the ends of the chain together.

4. Use the cam tensioning devices that are built into the side chain to tighten. Do this by inserting the flat end of the included wrench into the slot on each cam and twisting it.

5. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed.

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)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

My tire chains arrived in a very timely manner. I checked them out and they are exactly as described. Have not installed them yet, but know they will be perfect.


A litte bit of a learning curve with how to tighten, but once figured out they stayed in place wonderfully in the snow- far better than our friends with cables! Definitely recommend and great customer service- also arrived really fast!

2012 Chevrolet Colorado

good job, maybe a simple paper how to guide would be helpful.


The product is great. The only problem I have is apparently UPS has a difficult time trying to find our address. I had to go over to the neighbors to retrieve my purchase. Not a etrailer problem. I tried my chains on and they fitted great. We will definitely use etrailer again.


Tire chains work great

1999 Chevrolet Astro

Well made product. Had to be back ordered but staff were attentive and the follow through was excellent. The chains are aggressive and appear to be well suited for my needs traveling in remote off road conditions. The only suggestion I have is to include installation instructions for those not mechanically inclined. I would recommend this product.


Used them this weekend on my side x side and worked great


These chains are as chunky and sturdy as they look. I haven't tested them on snow yet but I think they will be fine. They are reasonably intuitive to fit, but be sure to try them out before you need them!

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

Ok, new to chains here. These came extremely fast over the Christmas holiday. I have a cabin in north central PA on top of a mountain. Two weeks ago I came up the mountain and it had snowed during my stay. It was absolutely terrifying going back down the dirt road, I had zero traction, took me an hour to go 2 miles, a neighbor had plowed, but it was like sledding in my vehicle. Up this week with chains with v bar, night and day, it's like driving on road with no snow, no sliding, complete control, what an amazing difference, absolutely recommend these chains. I ordered for 265/60/18 but also have a truck that is 265/75/16 that these are rated to fit, they do, but will need the spider bungee as they are sort of loose on the 16 rim.


Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

They looked like a nice set of chains, but have to rate a 1 star due to my experience. A customer service rep confirmed via chat that these chains would fit my tires (265 70 R16), but they were too small.


Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

They are nice chains, and they arrived very quickly, so I'll give 1 star for that despite the fact they don't come with a reuseable bag. But the other 4 stars come off because they don't actually fit the tire sizes they indicate they fit. My tires are 265/75-16 on a 2006 Chevy 2500HD. I installed the chains, using the closest link available for the inside and outside catch, then cycled all four cams, and the chains are still too loose. In fact, I could cycle the cams by hand, and didn't even need to use the special tool, that's how loose they are. You can clearly see in the included picture how much slack there is at the keeper since it's hanging lose instead of taunt against the tire like is should be. You can also see that it is connected to the closest link, and that all four cams are tightened. You can even make out the tire size. This isn't an installation problem, or an operator error. This is a "they don't fit what they say they fit" problem. I tried calling etrailer for assistance, but other than verify I had the correct chains for my tire size, all they could do was suggest I get the rubber bungee cord things.

So now I have the outside rubber things coming to try and take up the slack if I actually need to use them during my trip next week. Tire chains specified for a given tire size range should fit. These don't, but I don't have enough time to change them out and have no confidence anything else I ordered would fit better anyway. Later when I have time, I'll remove one of the laterals so I can tighten the chains more, but for $150 I would expect a product that fits. Buyer beware...

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. There can be differences in how a chain will fit on a certain tire size depending on the tire manufacturer. A tire made by Goodyear in a 265 75 R16 size will be slightly different then the same size made by Kenda for example. We always recommend using a set of rubber adjusters with these chains to ensure a snug fit. If your rim size is 14 to 24 then we recommend part # TCMA2

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

Had some trouble at first, the set was too large for my tires. I was able to remove one of the cleats and shorten the diameter... All is well now, hope I never have to use them, but nice to know I can.


Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

One of the links is going in the opposite direction, so if I were to put on the chains, the metal would puncture the tire. Sucks because this is not cheap. You would think they would check all the links to make sure they did not install the links the wrong way.
If I didn't check I would have had a blown tire!!

I am relieved you noticed before installing them! Good catch! I will have our customer service team to reach out to you to get you a proper pair of tire chains.

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains

First, delivery was accurate as tracked to a very rural locaion. Thank you for that.
Second, when I finally installed the tire chains, they fit. When used consistent with industry standards, for example, slow speeds, proper install either drape or roll on methods, the chains work well.

The quality of this product serves us well in the remote Federal forest, generally unplowed in winter.

An instructional video would be helpful. We used youtube presenters to fill this gap.

Well done etrailer.

  • Best Snow Tire Chain for 2016 Polaris Ranger UTV
    I have a couple options for tire chains for your 2016 Polaris Ranger UTV. It depends on what situation you want them for. My personal favorite is the Titan Chain Alloy Tire Chain # TC1545 with its diamond pattern and relatively easy to install design. The diamond pattern has more tire coverage than your traditional ladder style chains, so it is great with maneuvers like sharp turns or quick stops. If you're planning on driving through mud a lot, then Titan Chain Tire Chains with Cams...

  • Availability of Tire Chains that Fit Tire Size 35x12.50R20
    Yes we do offer tire chains that fit the tire size 35x12.50R20 that you have which you can see all of them at the attached link on this page. Our most popular option is the Titan chains part # TC2335 which install easily, provide great traction, are smoother riding due to the diamond pattern, and are priced great. If you were looking for a V-bar setup like the chains you mentioned you'd want the # TC3835 instead. V-bar chains do great in icy conditions as they break the ice up well.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for Airstream Flying Cloud Travel Trailer
    I'll provide 2 options for you, one that's recommended for snow and ice, and one that works better for snow only. For snow and icy conditions, the Titan V-bar chains, part # TC2816CAM features V-shaped studs that really bite into the ice for superior traction. The chain set includes a cam-style tightener, but I'd still recommend using adjusters like part # TCMA2. If you're not going to encounter much in the way of ice, but will be dealing with snowy conditions, the Titan Twist-Link chain...

  • Tire Chains that Fit Size 305/65-18
    I attached a link to a page that has all of the tire chains we offer that fit your tire size of 305/65-18 but I really like the Pewag Starwave chains part # PW94FR which provide great traction, are lighter weight, and will last a very long time.

  • What Snow Tire Chains will Fit My 26x8x12 ATV Tires?
    I have a great tire chain solution for your ATV. Unfortunately, the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TC2816CAM will not fit your 26x8x12 ATV tires. However, for a great alternative that will fit, I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TCATV3-4. These chains have the same V-bar studs as the # TC2816CAM for excellent traction in deep snow and ice. To make installation and tightening easier, I recommend the tensioners...
