How to build Ice Racing Tires
Hey guys, in this tutorial I´ll be showing you step by step how to build
your own ice racing tires, in this case for a motorcycle. We have been
trying over 10 different models and fint this to be the best, so far.
I hope that you´ll enjoy it and if you got any questions all you need to
do is to comment down below. Excuse my english, it will be better in the
future! :) Continue to read if you want everything in text so you can print
it for a reminder.

So we know that a tire got 10-14 mm of rubber, depending of it´s
Mesaure the nuts that you are going to use and then add the 10-14mm.
Example: 11 mm rubber + 9 mm nuts = 20 mm
This means that 20 mm will dissapear inside of the tire and wont touch the
ice. So you will atleast use 25 mm screws but I would prefer 30mm :)
So when you got your "30mm screw" you can grind/sharpen 10 mm of it.
When you´ve grinded all the studs you´re ready to insirt them to the
tire. Now it´s time to decide if you are going to use ordinary washers or
if you will you will use the metal band as you saw in the video.
I choose the metal band because the tire will stay stronger and it will
also give you a free pattern for your studs.
Same on the outside, decide what kind of nuts you will use. The ones in the
video are lighter than normal nuts and you dont need a washer.
Draw a line around the whole tire, centered. Drill the first lap around
from the outside to make sure that it´s centered.
Then it´s okey to drill from the inside.
Feel satisfied with your pattern? I do hope so.
You probably have some questions how to keep the air inside of the tire
when you´ve mounted it. Dont worry. In my next tutorial I´ll show you how
to setup your bike for ice racing. Since there is more than just studded
