The Tire DoGs have spoken. My fingers are still bleeding.

With hope my jaunt to Hamilton on Tuesday nets me a new rear carcas to prey on.

Looking for 19 and 20 inch slicks for fronts and 17 and 18 inch slicks for rear. If we use old knobbies we need someone with tire lathe. I think I could turn out some pretty good stuff with some practice and a ship load of screws. Looks like aprox 250 for screws and about 150 for tires. My guess is Jordan smokes a set a season. With a little TLC I bet a set lasts me 3 years(we'll see).

I need to upload some pics of my current state but I think I'll hold off until the rear is in process.

1500 screws in a pail

The side screws anchor the liner in the main carcas. An amazing amount of force trying to rotate the outer aainst the inner. The other screws are 11/2 long and screw right into the liner as well. The last liner protects the tube from all the nasty little screw points.

In all there are almost 1500 screws in a pro rear tire. 30-40pounds of spinning buzzsaw.

watch yer pinkies

That makes sense.

How think are these liners? Are they just a strip of thick rubber? If so, do you need to get special tubes to fit in, or do you just cram the regular ones in? Sorry about the hijack, but this is interesting stuff!

The liners are old road tire of the correct circumfrence in the pro tires. Jr's tires are just a thick rubber strip to stop poking the tube. The tubes fit fine but it can be a pig to get them in with all the extra meat in there. I just use regular tubes as well because I never air down to where you would get a pinch.

When the call comes down that the ice is in you should load your gear, some beer and come to the pond.

keep yer ears on

total noob question about the studs.......
Why can't we use the ski-doo ones with the backing nuts?
It would eliminate the need for the additional liners and should hold air if sealed properly is it a weight issue?
