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

2017 Ram 2500

2 words, Heavy Duty. I haven't gotten to use them yet and hope I never will. But preparing for a hunt, I knew I better have some that fit my truck. I have had chains for all of my rigs before and no stranger to having to chain up. And these appear like they will not disappoint should I have to throw iron.

2019 Ram 3500

The tire chains look great and fit nicely. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that no storage box is included.


I have used chains in the past without tightening cams and aways struggled with getting the chain tight enough.

These chains with the cams are a joy to use. The went on easily and tightened up with out a problem.

I used these chains with all weather tires and had no difficulties while plowing 18 inches of heavy wet snow. Prior to using the chains I was getting stuck in the same snow.

We'll worth the money and etrailer provided great service.

James - 04/07/2019


Love these chains !! Fast shipping!! Great fit!! Very friendly customer service!! 5 star! Good quality!! Heavy duty chains!


I just received the chains. etrailer was very helpful over the phone helping me select chains that were right for my truck, and the right for the type of terrain I am going to use them on. Shipping was quick, I did 5-7 day and they moved it to 3-5 for free. The chains fit my truck really well. I have not tried them off the road yet, but they look very aggressive so not concerned. They are really east to install, took me less than 5 minutes and you can put them on without actually moving the truck. This is also a plus.


Granted, I have not actually tried these chains out on the snow/ice yet. I have put the chains on my tires to check for fit and to see how easy or difficult they would be when the time comes, and they fit great and went on very easily. With the cam system I was able to tighten the chains very snug to the tire and without the need of bungee cords, bc there was no slack in the chains. Chains look to be made from great material....exactly what I was needing!


Great traction on compact snow and ice. I would not want to drive more than 10mph on gravel or concrete. Off road recommended.

Pontiac Montana

Bought and installed on old 1978 Chevy 4x4 Camper Special for Montana winters. 4x4 needs added traction traveling off property in Kootenai Mountains. This old pick-up is used to get supplies and haul firewood. Chains were an enormous aid in Snow, Ice, and Mud that make traveling sometimes treacherous. These chains are superior to old ones; and truly seize the road. Love 4 Wheeling.


These chains are extremely well constructed with all welds fully joined. The quality of the chain metal is excellent and the v bars are integrated with care.


I installed the chains and my truck to discover that they are at least three links too long. I have the correct size according to the bag they came in. So I guess I will saw off the additional links. These chains don't look as heavy as I hoped and they are made in China.


The service was exceptional. ordered on Monday and the were delivered to Maine on Thursday. Very prompt. As far as fit, I can't tell you yet. I ordered the correct size for my tires, so I assume they are ok. I will try them on before it snows. I really like the way you track your product. From the order to the delivery and every hand that touches the order. I guess that way, everyone is held accountable. Good business practice. Thank you


I sure hope they work as good as they l ook

2008 Toyota Tacoma

Fits on my 285 tire on my Tacoma!


Have not towed with it yet. However I will be using in next week towing a car dolly on a 3,000 mile round trip. Not a real test of this product because it's superbly built. Well worth the price.

2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

Bought these for my 2014 Ram 2500. Product looks to be quality hardware. I only gave four stars as I have not road tested yet. I'm sure these chains will bite into any ice and snow without much effort. I will find out soon.

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

Great set of chains for the price, fitted them on the new truck and they fit nice and tight with plenty of room for adjustments. Haven't used these yet on ice but I have the same set but smaller for my Yukon and they worked great. The V bar bites down well with only mild ride change. I have these for trips to Tahoe and keep them in the truck as a "just in case". Hopefully I won't have to pull them out but if I do I know this pattern works well and will get me home.


Great help on making sure I had the right parts. And really fast shipping very happy.


exactly as listed and fit perfect.
cams make these the easiest chains I have ever installed.

2014 Ram 2500

Quick delivery. Product delivered as expected. Easy to install.

  • Recommended Snow Chains for a 2014 Ram 2500 with 275/70/R18 Tires for Snow and Ice Covered Roads
    Since you will be running on snow and ice covered roads, I recommend the Titan Chains # TC3829CAM because it has a steel V-bar with ice spikes and cam tensioners. The V-bar studs with ice spikes penetrate the ice giving you superior traction. I recommend getting 2 pairs because you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Having them on the front drive tires will provide added steering and braking benefits. The cam tighteners are built-in making fitting and tightening a breeze and cross chains are...

  • Best Snow Chains for Deep Snow and Ice for a Tire Size 285/70/17
    I would recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC3829CAM. These are off-road rated tire chains confirmed to fit your tire size that have V-bar links on them that give them the best possible traction in icy conditions. They also will do very well in deep snow as that is what they are designed for. Check out the review video to the right that I attached for more info. You will want to check your owners manual to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage with your vehicle.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Nissan Titan with LT275/75R18 Tires
    For off-road chains to fit your tire size of LT275/75R18 there aren't any that are Class S compatible. The Titan Chains part # TC3829CAM would be great but the link thickness would be too large to be Class S compatible.

    The correct v-bar style tire chains with cam tighteners for your 2005 Ford F-350 with 275/70-18 tires is the Titon Chains V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners part # TC3829CAM. The Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains has studden v-bars which are going to do especially well in ice. The cam tighteners allow for a quick/easy install and they come with a 90-day warranty. I also recommend you take a look at the vehicle's owner's manual for any tire chain precautions.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-250 FX4 with 275/70/18 Tires for Ice and Snow
    For ice like what you mentioned the best snow chain style is the V-bar as they do the best to break up the ice. So for your tire size of 275/70-18 the best v-bar chain would be the Titan V-Bar chains part # TC3829CAM which have cam tensioners too that help make it easier to tighten the chains to the tire.

  • Recommendation for Heavy Duty V-Bar Snow Chains for 275/70-18 Tires on 2011 Ford F-350
    According to the owner's manual, Ford doesn't state any prohibitions regarding using snow tires on your truck as long as you're not using 20 inch wheels, so you'll be good to go. Of the two V-bar chains available for your 275/70-18 tires, the # TC3829 uses a heavier 7mm thick chain link, so if heavy duty is what you're looking for, that is what I'd recommend. These chains can be used on or off-road and offer superior bite on icy road surfaces. You might also consider a set of tensioners...

  • V-Bar Tire Chain Recommendation for a 35x12.5x17 Tire
    Actually based on the tire size you listed you would want the part # TC3829CAM instead of the # TC3831CAM. This is the same style of chain that you referenced with the only difference being that it is confirmed to fit your tire size. I attached a review video for you to check out as well as an FAQ article on snow chains.

  • Titan Tire Chains for a 1996 Toyota Tacoma with 32x11.5-15 Tires
    Tire chains # TC3835CAM are just a little too large for your 32x11.5-15 tires but we do have chain options that will fit. For your tire size you would need # TC3829CAM. Normally I would say to consult the vehicle owner's manual on the use of tire chains. But since this is a non-stock tire size you may need to speak with Toyota or a dealer directly.

In fact, these are the only tire chains that fit your tire size and have both the v-bar construction with cams. Please note, the owner's manual only states to use tire chains on the rear two tires due to limited clearance between the inside of tire and brake lines etc. If you wanted to use tire chains on the front two tires...

So with that in mind, the chains I highly recommend for your '17 Ram are from Titan: - Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TC3829CAM The Titan # TC3829CAM are a superb overall option due to their design.

    The Titan Chain Tire Chains w Cams, part # TC3229CAM are designed as a fit for your Silverado 1500 with 285/70-17 dually tires. The maximum speed rating when using these chains is 30 mph. If you do not have dually tires I recommend part # TC3829CAM. These are tire chains with cam tighteners like the TC3229CAM used for dual tires. I also recommend installing tensioners to make sure the chains stay securely fastened. The tensioners I recommend are part # TCMA2.

I'd recommend the same chain in a larger size, available as part # TC3831CAM which is a confirmed fit for your tire size. The V-bar links provide excellent traction on snow or ice. The chains do include the cams used for tightening the chain to the tire, but a set of rubber adjusters like part # TCOA2 would be a good investment to ensure...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 285/60-20 Tires With Off-Road Tread Pattern on 2019 Ram 2500
    Due to the aggressive tread pattern on your 285/60-20 tires on your 2019 Ram 2500, you'll want to use a wide-base type tire chain that adds a little extra space to accommodate the tread pattern on an off-road style tire. For good all-around traction, I'd recommend the Titan twist-link chains, part # TC3229CAM. This is a great choice for snow and mud, but if you'll be traveling frequently in very icy areas, these might not be the best choice. For excellent traction in icy conditions, the...

Since the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires # TC3829CAM you were looking at are not Class S chains, you will need to use a different chain.
