Default CR 125 studded tyres question

     

If I studd my tires with something like this
Google http://www.homeprofasteners.com/image/cache/TEK%2520SCREWS%2520-%2520HEX-500x500.jpg vaizd

Should I cut the middle like in the custom ice screws or not or leaving them as they are I will get the same traction?

That type of screw is what we buy to stud our tires, we leave them like they are so we can take them out in the spring.. We use the sheet rock screws with the hex head. They work great and get really good traction! And the ones we get are only like 0.08 a piece, and I put 350 in my tires (350 total, 150 in front and 200 in back)

Ok, I do alot of ice riding and I will tell you I have never in my life rode on a set of home made tires that were worth a sh#$t. Spend the money on fredette ice tires and you will not believe how well they work. I can come inches away from dragging bars on the ice.

But if you are going to studd them yourself get actual carbide screws " kold kutters" they will last a long time as hond as you keep them on ice only. Sheet metal screws round off in no time.

Well I studded my tires and they served good but the back ones got ruined because I rode streets a few times.. But if I rode only ice there perfect Those kold cutters are expensive

I thought you only started riding ice last year BBR!! we used to use the standard sheet metal screws and they worked pretty good, other than you had to keep replacing them pretty often. if all you do is play ride with others so equipped you will do just fine. the first time you ride with somelike the the vcuts mentioned you will be ruined for the hardware store stuff. If you ride with the canadian formula studs in a good liner equippped tire you will go throwaway the ones BBR is talking about too. so just have fun and enjoy the progressive trip you are likely to be taking.

Ossa is right on the money.

Speaking of ice tires...... really not happy with myself right now. I've installed pro built ice tires with liners countless times and they can be a real bit** but with patience I've always got them mounted without too much trouble. Until now. I got a little to forceful and snapped a bead on a new tire... there goes $370. Went and shelled out the money for another and installed it this morning without any issues. Live and learn!
