With the temperature well below 20 Celsius there is not much riding to be done outside so i built myself the grippyest tyre ever...With the temperature well below 20 Celsius there is not much riding to be done outside so i built myself the grippyest tyre ever. This is how I did it:


















5th: I put duct tape (or electrical tape) along the inside like this:

This makes it so that the nails don't cause the tyre to puncture.

DONE!!!!! Here is what it looks like:

Riding on these tyres are super grippy. I have only tried them on snow and nothing else so far so i don't have any idea how they will react to other conditions. Also i have only tried them on the front and they allow you to rail turns in the snow and have your rear wheel drift behind if you only have a regular tyre on the rear. Good luck Smile
1st: I found a Kenda Nevegal and a box of roofing nails.

2nd: I cut about 52 of the roofing nails lots shorter by breaking off the heads. Like this: first i made a small cut in each nail like this:
2785460

2785460

2785458

2785458

then i put each in a vice like this:
2785457

2785457

then i hit each of the 52 heads off with a hammer:



Finally they all look like this:
2785400

3rd: I drilled holes in the the parts of the tyre that stick above the rest of the tyre:

4th: I pushed the nails into the tyre from the inside sticking out:
