Total noob here. What's the longest gold screw I can put in a Kenda 335 without a liner?

5/8"

Something to think about however is that the 335 can load up easily if the ice is not clean. There are those that recommend a deep lug dirt tire for the occasional ice rider.

You want tall knobs with space around each knob for clearing, rubber is also important. Even with a liner, you'll be tearing screws out if you're really getting on it. For home brew tires without a liner, I would suggest some Gorilla glue on the tip of each screw, they'll stay in longer. I like the Kenda Parker DT, it has a heavier carcass for desert racing, and a harder compound.

Some ice tire builders use the MT 44.

Nice open tread pattern, and remember, for ice narrow is better.

Dunlop K490 is the front tire of choice for almost,if not all tire builders as well.
Nice big blocky knobs.

I built my front myself with one and it works very well.

also buy a few more screws than you think you will need so that you can replace ones that do back out . If memory serves me 1000 will do a front and rear with a hand full of spares , but that is a fuzzy memory , your results may vary .


and get a 1/4 " T handle or nut driver so that in between lap sessions you can check your screws and turn in any that are beginning to back out .

I ran the Shinko 520 with MF44s on the rear. Believe I ran Bridgestone ED77 on the front.
