I have made a set of studded tyres.They work very well:thumb:.How low should i let the studs wear down before i replace it?

Until they stop working.
Just retired a tyre after 15,000 plus km and 10 years as the casing and tread were actually degrading while the studs were still fine.

You could test it on some black ice.
Ive been thinking about wear rate and how easy it would be to replace all the screws. I dont think it is a major job, about 2 hrs.
Each screw head is backed by a cut out square of inner tube and these would have to be removed and reglued (using Copydex rubber adhesive). I tried gluing a whole inner tube in place but it is easier with smaller bits.

I have a second tyre with the bead cut off as a liner.Easier for re studding .;-)
