The studs on my snowmobile could probably debark a tree... and people race these things... comin down from a jump and landing on top of someone. Yeah buddy, you'll feel that in the morning.

I gotta get some black leathers and stud those too - might as well go the extra mile.

Yeah, studded leathers will shorten the slide if you happen to fall off

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

This thread is full of win!! haha. I have been thinking of doing this with my buddies wrecked GSXR 750. its got a full stunt cage and all so even less to worry about on the ice. I think it would be a blast! and hold me over until next riding season begins

I feel like that might grab and throw you on quite the painful tumble. I'd rather slide on the ice.




Considering going to the garage and starting to poke holes in some old tires .

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

I have a set of tires for my dirt racing kart that are studded, like pictured on page 1. I'll try and get some pics in here eventually. Don't have any on my cell or computer, and the kart is in it's home away from home. Like below, only with 3/4" studs. I do some oval ice racing on a few different lakes up here in the winter. Go out and race when it's -20 in the same shit I race in during 90 degree summers

Kart looks wayyy different now, these are at least three years old She is all black and yellow, with flames. Just like the R6!

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

Sick! Look at the steering wheel. Like F1 dude. Betcha that would interrupt a pond hockey game. Dunno how it stacks up to this bitchen polaris on the trails though. Triple digits on a highway comes easy to an r6... try that shit out on a lake with a sled. Things built for it anyway. I would totally drive that to work btw. Nice ride
