How to put tire studs on bike?

July 02, 2024

First, make sure your bicycle tires can be installed with tire studs, or whether it is in the right season (such as winter) or road surface, or follow the relevant laws to determine whether you are allowed to install them. Usually, the tires that can be installed with tire studs are usually winter bicycle tires designed specifically for ice and snow roads. The purpose of installing tire studs on bike tires is to increase grip on wet or icy roads. If you meet all the above conditions, you can follow the steps below to operate:

1. Prepare tools and materials

You need a set of tire studs that can be used on bicycle tire, a small screwdriver or tire studs installation tool, and gloves.

2. Check the tire

Before installing tire stud, make sure the bicycle tire is not damaged or worn to the extent that it needs to be replaced. Clean the surface of the tire to ensure that there is no oil or debris.

3. Remove the tire

Use a tire lever to carefully remove the tire from the hub. Be careful not to damage the hub or tire.

4. Determine the installation position

Based on the design of the tire studs, determine the best installation position on the tire. Generally, the tire studs, should be evenly distributed on the tread of the tire.

5. Install the studs

Follow the manufacturer's instructions for spacing and depth. Use a small screwdriver or a specific stud install tool to carefully screw the studs into the tire tread. Make sure they are securely fastened to the tire and will not loosen or fall out. Depending on the design of the studs, you may need to insert one end inside the tire and leave the other end outside to provide grip.

6. Install the studded tire onto the hub

Place one bead of the tire onto the hub. Install the tire onto the hub by hand as much as possible.

If needed, use a tire lever to install the tire onto the rim, making sure the studs are not damaged in the process. Make sure the tire bead is evenly installed around the entire rim. Reinstall the wheel onto the bike, making sure it is securely fastened.

7. Test ride

Before riding on icy roads, test the bike to make sure everything is working properly and the studs have enough grip.
