Default Re: What is driving an A on snow/ice like? Can you add studs to A tyres?

So your winter drive to Alaska is possible! I suggest Nokia 5.50x19 bias ply tyres for the studs.

I tried the 1500s in my Hummer this last time, and they worked very well. I drove up a steep, icy hill last winter, and was able to come to a full stop without sliding, even though several cars including a police car, had slid off into a ditch. Then I was able to accelerate right up the hill!

These were used in the Fast & Furious movie.

Wow. That’s a cool way to stud “non-studdable” tires! I’ve never seen anything like that. Thanks for sharing.

If you are worried about traction on the snow and ice, the best bet is to get one of these:

When I was younger many years ago we use to stud our dirt bikes with hex headed screws. It was amazing how they bit into the ice.

The thought of racing a dirt bike on ice now sounds painful.
