Default Does anyone sell studs for tires?

So I have a set of basically new winter tires with studs, but the studs are missing or worn to nothing. I was just going to sit down with them one night and pull the old studs out but I would like new ones to stuff back in the holes.Anything local around here where I can buy them?

6 Robblees I think does, but you will need a stud gun to stud your tires.

Something like this:

Holes are already there. Not sure if gun will be required. Looks like it would make life easier though.

I don't think you can get them in without the gun. Sure the hole are there but the gun stretches the hole open so the stud will go into it.
Might be possible to do it by hand, but I sure wouldn't try to do it for 4 tires worth!

If I was still working at Sears I could probably pull some strings and do them for you, but I haven't work there in years.

100 bucks and Alaska Tire will do it for you. Not sure if you can do it without a gun, the base of the stud is huge compared to the hole.

I know what you mean, bought brand new Ipikes last year for the Evo and now will probably have to get them re-studded as well.

Not sure if you ever pulled old studs out, I've done it twice (too cheap to buy summer tires for my truck) and it sucks, dangerous too, those studs come flying out pretty fast. Don't bother pulling them out prior to re-studding, no need to do that.

Seth, you'll have to match the stud length with the amount of wear your tires have. If you go putting brand new studs that stick out past the tire, they'll come flying out with normal use. They sell different length studs to match the depth of the holes. And In my opinion, aluminum studs are superior to steel. Lighter at the circumference, (pick up a box of steel studs, then aluminum) about eight lbs for all four.

you don't want to use the existing holes, it's easy enough to drill new ones. Theres to good of a chance of a little rock or something being in there when you install the stud, when you drive on it theres a chance it will get pushed into the tire and cause a leak.

Don't think I'd worry about the unsprung or rotational weight difference of winter studs, I think it's pretty negligible compared to a whole tire. If you want aluminuim, do it to reduce road wear.


Edit: Oh yeah, stud gun would be mandatory. Unless you want to do a bunch, just pay someone to take care of it for you.
