Can turfs be studded?

Recommended Posts

With a good set of chains, there is no need for studs, the chains do all the work and the studs would hardly ever touch the pavement. I have chains with ice picks on them (extra little steel feet on each cross chain to dig in pack snow and ice. Add some wheel weights on each side and go to town! The newer turfs I have seen have no provision for studs, some of the old Firestone town and country turfs with the zig zag old snow tire tread pattern did have the little holes for studs if I remember correctly.

I've seen folks that drove short screws into the lugs on AG's to create small, cheap, replaceable ice scratchers. Seems to me it was on this site. I'm sure the same could be done with turfs, but there isn't a whole lotta lug there to utilize. I do as Tim says...chain up and go! dOd

Tim who?:D:D I picked up some 6x8 rims for my Serf and I was considering putting Tru-Power bar tires on them. I would rather see screw studs on a bar lug tire rather than a turf tire. I have an asphalt driveway and whether the chained tires, or the studded tires spin, there will still be scratch marks when the ice and snow melt.

My luck the screws would pop out in the driveway and pop my $$$SUV tires.......use chains with turfs, it really works Perfect on snow/ice/dirt/etc...sm01

I wrote some stuff regarding chains mounted on turf tires and plowing a garden. (BTW, that method works just fine.:D) There was even a guy recently that went without chains on turf tires and plowed his garden with little trouble.
