Generally speaking, re-studding tires is a good thing. But it is useful only if by themselves, the tyres are still new, deep tread and no damage yet.

To Osipovichi even summer tires, but to do it categorically it is impossible for security reasons. Summer rubber is a different composition, it dubeet in the cold and absolutely not holding, besides, summer tires are not suitable for snow and winter protector.

One spike when re-studding is worth about 30 rubles. Thus, to make a full pereshivko one bus (in the bus about 100 spikes) will cost 3000 rubles. It is quite expensive, although the price of new tires about 6000 rubles can be economically profitable. Especially if your car is not a small 13th or 14th of the wheel, and, for example, the 16th, 17th or even more. These tires new are very expensive.

The best option of re-studding looks, when you just need to compensate off the spikes, that is, to insert 20-30 spikes in the wheel. Price in the region of 600-1000 rubles seems quite a normal.

For yourself and for sale

Bad option of re-studding would be if you decided to restore my old tires with the tread almost worn and almost taken off or sagging spines. We must always remember that the best cheap but new tires than the old restored.

By the way, if you buy used tyres, look to spikes and protector was home.

To Osipovichi can in two ways: either next to the holes from the factory spikes always do so for themselves, either in the old holes — do for sale. The first option is of course preferable, because the old holes almost never keep a new tongue and they can povyskakivali after a couple weeks of driving on asphalt.

As for reliability of fixing of a thorn in the tire, in principle, all good. Not as reliable as the factory, but with careful operation, the spikes are not out. It follows a few more tips.

Without loss of spikes

First — after re-studing the bus, and after buying new, need running. Running lasts from 500 to 1000 km depending on where you drive (highway or city) and at what speed. Best long country trip at the speed of 70-80 km/h Running is needed to load spikes moved and took its proper position in the tire.

And to keep the spikes on as long as possible, you need to ride smoothly without wheelspin, abrupt transitions, and braking on the floor. But most of all spikes are afraid of it smoothly. Especially when the wheels first slipped across the ice, and then to seize upon the asphalt. At this point they account for the largest load and they fly.

It is not necessary to twist the wheel in place. In this case the spikes have a very large load, it is better to turn the steering wheel at large angles only when moving at least at a minimum speed of 3-4 km/h. This will save you the spikes.
