V-Bar Icebreakers

V-Bar Icebreakers

These chains are outstanding in serious winter weather conditions because the V-bar studs can bust through intense ice and packed snow. So, you'll be able to get to work and back home again even in the toughest weather. You can also use them if you ever go off-roading and end up in a mud-digging situation. These chains are going to help give your vehicle purchase to pull out and keep moving.

Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer. You'll also need to know how much clearance is in your wheel well, which you can determine by measuring from your tire tread to the sidewall of the wheel well.

We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.

You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. These chains can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.

Installing Snow Chains

Installing these chains is simple.

Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks.

Drape chains over tire.

2. Drape the chain over the tire, ensuring that the V-bar studs face away from the tire.

Make connections

3. On the back of the tire, pull the chain tight and hook the ends together. Repeat this on the front of the tire, then clamp the lever to fasten extra chain links and keep them from flapping as you drive.

Attach optional tensioners

4. Insert the included tool into the cam and twist to tighten the sidewall chain. Twist as many cams as it takes to get a tight fit.

Attach optional tensioners

5. Drive forward 2-3 vehicle lengths and recheck the chain tension. Tighten any loose cams. If needed, rubber adjusters (sold separately) can be used to help give you a tight fit. Make sure the hooks on the adjusters face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.

Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

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.

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

Ford Transit Connect

I am completely satisfied with the quality of these tire chains that I purchased from your company. But I am most impressed by the customer service I received after my item was lost in transit. Another set of chains was sent with no questions or hassles at all. I am totally amazed at this company and I will definitely share my feelings with my friends.


Best tire chains that I ever owned . Easy to put on the tires and they stay put.

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

easy to tighten with cams-great traction with v-bar links


Great chains. The grip is unbeatable on dirt roads. The multiple cam system is awesome and simple! I'll never buy anything other than these multi-cam chains. I use them on the old 7.3L dually for snow plowing and/or hauling anything up the road to cabin in the winter.

Tips: Carry an old yoga mat or two in the truck to lay on for getting underneath and behind the tires. I summer I use the mats for working under the truck work when on dirt or in shop. Have your tools with you on the plow job!

Do not drive these chains on paved roads with this; the "V" grip will get ground down and/or a link will break. Take the time to take them off for paved roads, and put back on back on dirt, it'll save these chains!!!

One season plowing review:
They held up great... That means is nothing broke that couldn't be fixed by me. I never used the front chains, except when my back chain broke (outer link over main cam system), I took it off and used one front chain on a single back tire, to get me through that days job. worked fine! replaced outer link when I got home (see product link below)

On dually set, outer locking link broke; the link one that goes over the cam mechanism.

I got my replacements at a local tire shop for less than $1. I bought a few, knowing this would likely happen again. Tools you may consider to have to get these on: pliers, vice grips, big flat head screw driver, and a hammer to smash it down after it's on. Think chain size PAPER CLIP. Keep these on hand, and the tools in your truck's kit to replace these on the job.

YES, various chains bent and a few came off several times infer bending, and that's exactly what I'd expect from a chain used for heavy duty plowing. Sometimes chains just come off... that was my fault for not retightening several times as I plow. Easy to check the cams for tightening. Remember... Keep the cam tool in the tool box ON TRUCK. I have all four of my cam tools on hand.

Every year after plowing season ends, I lay my chains on a steel plate and go through every link... using a large hand held sledge and various hand tools for bending/smashing chain links back into position, or replace as needed.

I found about 8 or nine outer retainers that were starting to open a bit (see pic of a replacement new one)... some close to really opening up; so I bent them back into a closed position. Everyone should be doing this every year with your chains. It's not uncommon for the the outer chains clips to open up gradually over time. Start each season by inspecting these, smashing them down with a hand sledge as needed.

One item to have in a plow truck since I learned a lesson last year... bolt cutters. Big and heavy to keep in a truck, but would have saved my ass last year from changing out rear dually chains to a single front chain, if I could've just snipped the cross tire chain off; who's outer link had come off. I'll be throwing that into my "tool kit" this year.


I received my order on Friday, I placed my order Wednesday evening, I would say that is a great turnaround time, I feel the products I ordered are good quality and a fair price. I test fitted my chains and adjusters Saturday morning, I had to tweak one the chains a little and they seem great, thanks a lot, I feel I got a good fair deal.

1996 Jeep F-250 and F-350

We bought the chains for emergency use on our jeep, pick-up and suv, should we ever need the extra traction. The boys have only used them on the jeep, so far, to joyride through the fields full of Jonas-snow last winter. They worked great! Would highly recommend them and would buy again!

Smith F.


Still use them infrequently but do their job!


The chains work fine... even though I've never had the cam tighteners before I think it's a good idea. The multi-arm rubber tighteners are okay but for me the tradition "rubber band" type of tightener is easier to use. One thing is certain, it is almost pointless to use the single tire chains on a dually. The unchained tire stays on top of the surface while the chained tire digs a hole until you worse off than before you tried the chains. Good point that I was aware of but I had the chains before I bought the dually. Good lesson for your future customers though.


Deffinatly some diggers on icy dirt road haven't tried them on pavement yet

1995 Dodge Ram Pickup

very loose on my 245/75/16 cams didn't do much they are so loose put some bunge cords on them help a little and first plow job and broke one latter so I don't see this going to good for me



Update- I put some d ring chain links in. so pretty much what I did is shorten front side by 2 links and back side by one link, it helped a lot but still loose. Most likely in the spring im going to have to shorten the chains by one latter. As for the latter I broke used a d ring chain loop to replace the loop I lost thats working good.


The five star rating is reflective of the product and the company. The product is as described on the website, instructions and use of cam tighteners were clear and chains were installed easily. For future reference, it is helpful having the tire sizes listed on the bag the chains come in. The chains will be used to plow a long, uphill driveway in northern Vermont. Received the chains yesterday, installed today on a 4WD truck and chains met all expectations.
The company website made determining the proper chain size easy.
Delivery and follow-up was prompt.


Great brand and easy to put on!

2004 Dodge Dakota

Traction is AMAZING with these chains, BUT never received the tool to tighten the cams. Been using a homemade tool I rigged up to tension them. Other than poor packaging, the chains themselves are amazing.


Great pricing excellent products and very fast shipping


These are the first set of chains I owned for a vehicle which is a 2003 e350 diesel van. These chains are easy to install and to take off. They turn my van into a tank. She crawled though thick heavy snow and even high amounts of the light fluffy snow as well. The wear after a year seems little to none. These are exactly what I needed and I’m so happy after a year.


I would recemond these tire chains. So far the chains have done a good job gripping the snow and ice as I have plowed up and down the hill of my long driveway.


I am very pleased with the ease of ordering the availability and pricing of these snow tire chains, and the process from ordering to having them delivered was very fast.

1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Ordered 2 types if chains, standard and cross bars.
Arrived earlier than expected.
Have them, hope not to use them.
Purchased for a 99 F350 dually.
Ordering was easy and follow up shows care for the customer.

2001 Ford F-150

Fit prefect


Have not actually had to use chains yet on the road but have installed them in driveway, fit properly and shipping was prompt and as promised. Second time I have ordered from Etrailer and have been very satisfied with service.

2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

these chains are the best tool i've gotten in many years. plowed my driveway uphill (has to be done that way, it's steep and road is narrow) with 8" of wet snow, no spinning, sliding etc. these are best for off road or use in deep snow or on ice, it'd be really easy to tear up bare pavement with them.


My first order em with etrailer... remarkable communication and service. Chat function was helpful, price was good, order comms were good, and shipping only took two days from order across the country. And immediate follow up when delivered. Slick operation. Product seems quality though I haven’t installed yet.

2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

As described. These are the actual chains. I'm happy. etrailer delivered as promised and demonstrated extra mile customer service to get me all ordered parts before my extended driving trip. Thank you.

1996 Dodge Ram Pickup

Basic instructions would have been helpful for people that have never had to used chains before. So called common sense can get you in trouble, having to go back to the house 100' of 2' drift to get the pdf was for the birds. This comment in no way detracts from how the chains worked and how they were assembled. Time will tell with use but coming out of 2' drift worked well.


Great prices great service thanks


Bought these for my pickup with a plow on. Doesn't leave the property in the winter. A lot cheaper and convenient than purchasing snow tires and having to remove them in the spring. Definitely the way to go.

  • Best Tire Chain Recommendation for Ice for Jeep Wrangler 245/75-16
    For ice you really want to use V-bar chains as they are designed to break up the ice. Square links are best for deep snow and twist link are for people who want a smoother ride quality. For your tire size of 245/75-16 you would want the Titan chains part # TC2821CAM and you'll have no problem with the ice.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 1997 Dodge Ram Pickup
    Tire chains are generally best used on all four tires of 4x4 vehicles so long as the auto maker does not restrict use for any reason. Some tire sizes may affect the fit of chains on a vehicle if clearance in the wheel wells is limited. The best way to start is to check your truck owner's manual for any guidance regarding use of tire chains. I checked the Dodge website but they do not keep manuals for older trucks online; just have a look at your manual. If you can use chains on both front...

    For your 2017 Ram 3500 that has 235/80-17 sized tires the Glacier tire chains part PWH2328SLC are discontinued. However you can use the Titan # TC2821CAM chains on any 235/80-17 tire, including a dually outside tire. I have also included a link to other chains you could choose from. You do need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if you have any tire chain restrictions as well.

  • Does Tire Brand Make Difference for Picking Out Tire Chain Fit
    Tire types and brands do not make a significant enough difference when picking out tire chains. In order for a tire to be listed as a specific size it needs to actually be the correct size since vehicles have pretty tight clearances at times. So the Titan Chains part # TC2821CAM would work on your 245/75-16 from Falcon without any issues.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For A Tandem Axle Enclosed Trailer
    It is possible to put tire chains of your trailer tires. We recommend putting chains on the braking axle only. It will help to add traction and keep your trailer aligned in extreme winter conditions. Some states even have laws that require chains on trailers with electric brakes in areas where chains are required. If chains are required on the vehicle, we highly recommend putting chains on the trailer as well. Use of any tire chain requires careful matching to the tire size and a check...

  • Titan V-Bar Snow Tire Chains for 245/75-16 Tires
    Although they do offer a fit, the Titan # TC2828 chain you'd looked at won't fit a 245/75-16 tire. I'd recommend either the Titan Snow Tire Chains with V-bar links, part # TC2821 or the same chain with cam tighteners, part # TC2821CAM. The V-bar chains are excellent for deep snow or ice. The V-bars do a great job of biting into slick surfaces for superior traction. Even if you go with the model that features the cam tighteners, it's still a good idea to use a set of tensioners like # TCMA2...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 1993 Ford F-150 With 245/75-16 Tires
    A 245/75-16 tire is going to be 30.5" in diameter and 9.6" wide whereas a 265/75-16 tire is going to be 31.6" in diameter and 10.4" wide. Unfortunately, none of our chains that will fit a 245/75-16 tire will also fit a 265/75-16 tire. For the 265/75-16 tires I recommend the Titan # TC2828 ladder chains with v-bar links. For the 245/75-16 tires I recommend the Titan # TC2821CAM also with v-bars.

    I found an answer that will work.

However, we do sell some tire chains with that size. I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams # TC2821CAM.
