Anyone tried the Self-Tapping-Carbide-Tire-Studs?

I found these:
http://www.aerostich.com/catalog/US/...s-p-19555.html





And wondered if anyone has had any experiance with them? They seem to be a better answer to ice screws for someone like me who will use thier bike to commute to work - without the cost of the studding gun.

Anyone know how well the work (or don't work)?

Please, somebody tell me that this product is terrible. Otherwise I think Ryan may break my other arm.

(Which basicly means that )

I've decided that, if I'm going to keep riding with Ryan, I'm going to need these, because he's going to ride through snow and ice regardless of what's on his tires. Then again, I'm not the one who went down today...

Seems that way...

I went ahead and drilled a set of screws in today instead, since nobody seems to have tried the self-tapping studes.

Those look interesting- I have had a lot of problems with standard car studs staying in the tires. I wonder if these might be a little more likely to stay put. As for the ice screw method.... these are the real deal:

On clear ice you can drag the engine cases.

How did these work out for you? Did you ride on any asphalt at all?

Little to no asphalt. They worked great in hard-pack snow - traction was fantastic.

couple of guys on GSs have em here in the city. They said it gets squirly on bridges that have metal grating and when going over any metal in the city (manhole covers, drainage ditches, steel sheets, e.t.c.).

I think they're buts using em in the city though, but hey they said it was good for the snow....this was in june.....

Their great if you stay on snow / Ice. they are ICE screws. Any pavement will wear down the heads. Can you say 'tapdance'.

Tire Studs

Yes I have tried the studs from Aerostich. I rode about 160 miles in a good snow storm they did well ice, hard packed and small drifts. My buddy had some studs pull out on his driveway, he was pushing through drifts and spinning the rear tire. I like how easy they are to install and they seem to grab well. I put the Scooter B studs in new TKC-80's and have not had any flat tires. I ride a 08 R1200GS Adventure and will run them in the winter from now on I wondn't recomend them for anyone that want's to blast down the dirt roads spinning there rear tire.

Oh one other thing I have about 500 miles on them and don't see any noticable wear.

That is some great insight, thanks! What made you chose the scooter B studs? I ask, because I'm considering getting the "low profile A" set for some slightly worn TKC-80's... will they be to long?

Do you have to remove the tire to install them?

And one last question... if you hit pavement on them, how did they work then, slippery?

I bougtht the scooter B studs after reading on the Aerostich site that some folks had gotten flat tires. I measured a new set of TKC-80's 9mm & 10mm (I think) and then ordered what I thought would work the best. On pavement I don't notice any slipping I studded the inside two knobbies on the front and rear so it would be a one-two pattern if that makes any sence, when I lean over in a corner there is no studs touching the ground. No you don't have to remove the tires they come with a bit to install them very easy install. I think I may order more to have a 2-3 pattern. When the roads are bad I am going slow, so (in the corners) the studs are touching the ground. When I installed them in my tires we put some in my buddies rear but his front was half worn so we didn't take the chance it was very close we checked this on the half warn front I had taken off my bike. The bike behaves just fine and most of the riding has been on dry pavement about 160 miles of bad snowy icy roads. I may try to take some pic tonight and post it for you.

Hope this helps
