How to Convert Bicycle Tires Into Studded Snow Tires - Wikihow (number 3 scares me)


Method 1

  1. 1
    Purchase the right supplies, as listed in the "Things You'll Need" below.

    Tire Sizes

     Look for the Perfect Tire by Size. Tire Rack is Your Online Source.

  2. 2
    Drill (using a very small bit) down from the center of chosen knob into the tire.
  3. 3
    Drill a screw up from inside-out. If the angle isn't perpendicular to the tire, it'll stick out one side or the other.
    • Do one hole and screw at a time. Don't try drilling all the holes, then installing screws...you'll drive yourself crazy trying to find which knob you drilled.
  4. 4
    Put duct tape over the screws on the inside of the tire; sometimes it is best to use two layers of tape. You can purchase "tire liners" (there are a few brands include Slime and Mr. Tuffy) that are designed to go in between the tube and the tire instead of using duct tape to protect the tube.
  5. 5
    Mount the tires back on the rims.
     Mount the tires back on the rims.
    Mount the tires back on the rims. Getting the tires mounted on the rims will be difficult, comparable to wrestling a rabid porcupine.
