Ice tires

Had some time to night and it was not 40 below so I could heat up the garage with out to my energy wasted. LOL I Mounted my stockers that I had put studs in on the weekend. I had to drill out the center hole on the rims because there no hole there it's a solid cap. I had to this so I can use my tire machine. No big deal I sealed the hole again. It even looks good I like the rim and the color It makes the machine look like something. There is about 140 studs per tire.

never used an ice tire , figure it would be a blast though ... where do you find ice like that ? I know lots of snow around you but is it tracks set up or frozen lakes or what for the ice ??

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

we ride some little rivers that have had tons of machines on. the snow gets worn down to the ice. So this gives me control in the corners. I don't like bare ice have had to many spills on ice not to have pick's in my sleds track and ice studs in my tires. Now I can kick some poo poo butt.

Nice lookin cat! Is there anyway to open up all the pictures when multiple pictures are given instead of opening one then hitting page back key to open up another?

I dont think that wild thing would have any trouble tearing up the ice.
