    A Cheaper DIY stud option

    Since the Grip Stud group buy thread fell through, I thought I'd post this potential option. Not 100% sure if it will work because of the thread depth but the price is right.

    Screw_in Tire Studs-in Other Home Improvement from Home Improvement on Aliexpress.com

    some more technical information here on what looks to be the same item but massively marked up.

    MAXIGRIP ICE STUDS | Tire Studs | Winter Studs | Winter Ice Studs are available in Multiple Sizes

    I think the main question is if these will work with the tread depth of our tires....

    "The HM-11 has a 2.1mm carbide tip/core, a hardened, galvanized screw with coarse threads. The HM-11 is 12mm in length. Recommended minimum tread depth is 11mm."

    I've used a car tire stud about that length, driven from inside the casing of a Larry, and it protrudes outside the tread lugs. Don't think it would work.

    A pity, those are much more affordable.

    The Maxi-grip studs are only a little cheaper than the Grip Studs. $91/100 vs $100/100. The $25 is for a 25 pack.

    Seems that Grip Studs would still be the better way to go given they have a lower penetration.

    The first link shows the studs for $0.17 each stud.

    I am in the process of trying to source some shorter studs. $1 per grip stud is insanity.

    $9/lb. at Home Depot

    Gripstuds in the middle cuz they're shorter, but one could cut the screws a bit shorter with dikes or lineman's pliers. Might not last on long pavement commute, but great on snow and ice. None lost or loosened after 40 miles, 5 on bare pavement, and no sign of wear.

    The first link is a very good choice.

    The 5.7mm look like good replacement studs for tires with pre-formed holes for them, but I don't know if they'd work otherwise. Are there screw-ins shorter than 11mm?
    Also, the seller appears to have 100% rating from a total of one customer? Buyer beware. Did I read that right?

    I understand the same as you. I actually emailed a company similar (or the same company) with dimensions we need for bike tires. They sent back a pick with a stud around 13 mm and also the bike replacement stud photo. There has to be a supplier for the type we are looking for.... Just can't find them. I'll post back if I can find any more information.
