    Some Studded tires for my son

    So I have a Pair of IRC snow mad's for Winter riding . the 266 studs make for some great fun on fronzen ponds and other icy surfaces Well a couple weeks ago my son said he wanted to ride on a pond with me. But Hew would need tires for this and Studded tires are expensive and after seeing this thread Made me some snow tires! I decided to make him a set .

    First I needed a set of old tires , well what a perfect candidtae ! an old set of IRC blizzards that I bought 15 years ago , but retired when I relized the 56 studs in them ( way too few ) we worn down to Knubs , I guess the years of commuting on them did them in. so I take them and what is funny is there were only 56 studs in these tires but every knob was set up to be able to accept a stud had they put them in.

    so I took My handy power drill and drilled a small hole inb each of the outer most studs and from the in side screwed in 112 1/2 inch self tapping screw through, then took an old inner tube to line it and here they are !

    now if only we could find a clear pond we could use them , But we will before winter is over !

    you can still see the orignal studs in the center pattern

    heh, those look pretty cool......are the points really sharp? I've ripped several small holes in my clothes thanks to my tires, not fun. Hope they work out!
