Is that tire available in 130/70-18 ??? It's fairly easy to stud a car tire on the back, but the front still needs it.

Thanks in advance 8)

I'm guessing....

you must be headed up to Georgetown for some racing on the lake this winter?
I've seen that from the highway and on the news - pretty ball-sy riders if you ask me. Falling on ice isn't much better than asphalt (though your slide might last longer).
Be careful out there.

snow tires

TRUE STORY.
Back around '73 we were running 1/8th mile dirt drags. A 'run what ya brung" type contest.
One guy, trying to get more traction,studded the rear tire on a Sportster by putting sheet metal screws thru the tire from the inside,then filled the tire with dirt. :shock:
Almost instantly shredded the tire when he dumped the clutch.
Some guys laiughed @ him,but i gave him credit for trying it.

Only problem is studs are now illegal in snowbelt Michigan :?
Used them on my car past the "outlaw" date and still remember the $100 ticket :cry:
and the sorry part is the damn things work great :twisted:

I was just messing with y'all. Don't know if these actually come in a Glodwing size or not but they are built for motorcylce ice racing.
And yes Bill, the first time I saw them racing on Georgetown lake I about lost it. (not a thing to do on I-70 @75mph) There were RVs and cars PARKED on the lake ice while they watched them race :shock:
I know they do this kind of stuff up in the North country but it was really strange to see it for the first time.
