How to extend the life “sipovka” for another season — experiment “Behind the wheel”

Today car shops you can buy so-called maintenance spikes. This is a boon for owners of worn out winter tires. However, not all cases of fixation spikes will help out: sometimes their installation pointless.Alexey Revin “driving”Expert

Of course, all the winter runs can be quite different. Someone putting in the fall a brand new “studding”, the spring drove thirty thousand kilometers. However, he wears out tires before the legally permitted limit — the height of the tread shall be not less than 4 mm. Usually when this wear almost all the fish had already escaped. Such buses on the way to the dump, or, in extreme cases, you can dicatate them in the summer. Just keep in mind that when driving on warm asphalt acceleration, braking and lateral stability of a vehicle you are not really happy.

But if you go during the winter 5000 -10 000 km and at the end of the season are sorry to notice that some spikes are lost, it makes sense to think about the installation of repair of thorns.

When it is advisable to josipovac?

  • Tyre wear is small — the height of the tread not less than 6 mm.
  • The tires are not old. Osipovka tires older than five years will do nothing — the rubber is dry and will not hold the dowel as it should.
  • Missing a reasonable number of spikes. Loss of several pieces invisible, and if fell, almost all, Osipovka may be too expensive.

Ways Osipovka

1. Spikes standard size (in new holes). Under this option, a small but conventional design spikes installed in pre-drilled holes. The place should not be split grooves at a distance of at least 5 mm from the center of the hole. A modern tyre has a few places to install spikes in this way.

Often the spikes are too close to the groove or hole under an old thorn. This way you can install the spikes in the workshop, and do this procedure about 20 rubles per spike.Often the spikes are too close to the groove or hole under an old thorn.

2. Repair of ship increased size (standard hole). If the holes for the studs are not broken, you can use the repair spikes. The aluminum body is pressed carbide insert, and the increased diameter provides a plastic sleeve. Spike goes into the hole with great tension. In workshops for installation, use the air gun. The installation of a thorn in the workshop will cost about 20 rubles. The repair spike is from 6 rubles apiece. So be willing to Osipovichi bus independently.

Repair spikes are produced with a height of 7, 8 or 9 mm. note the large diameter of the stud. Due to this spike is very densely in a regular hole.Repair spikes are produced with a height of 7, 8 or 9 mm. note the large diameter of the stud. Due to this spike is very densely in a regular hole.

3. Threaded studs. Such spikes in their design resemble screws. Put them again in free from grooves and holes of the elements of the tread. Work can be done yourself.

Mount Chinese studs-screws simple, but they keep particularly well, and there is always a risk of causing a tyre puncture his tongue. The price for such a spike is 6-7 rubles.Mount Chinese studs-screws simple, but they keep particularly well, and there is always a risk of causing a tyre puncture his tongue.

There are more quality threaded studs, as in the photo. Each costs about 26 rubles, and still need to buy a special key. They can also be put in presbytie standard holes.There are more quality threaded studs, as in the photo. Each costs about 26 rubles, and still need to buy a special key.

Trying for yourself — installed threaded studs

The first thing you need to prepare a hole for the spike. Clean the hole from dirt and pebbles.

Caliper check the depth of the hole under the tongue. The depth should be equal to the length of the stud or slightly exceed it.Caliper check the depth of the hole under the tongue. The depth should be equal to the length of the stud or slightly exceed it.

Independently set repair the studs using a drill or screwdriver. Hold the cartridge at the tube internal diameter of 9 mm and max. not more than 12 mm. you Can use a suitable tool head.

Apply it on the edge of the hole an aqueous solution of a dishwashing detergent to reduce friction when pressing thorn.Apply it on the edge of the hole an aqueous solution of a dishwashing detergent to reduce friction when pressing thorn.

Push with force on the handle of the drill and give a slow rotation of the cartridge.Push with force on the handle of the drill and give a slow rotation of the cartridge.

Spike is correctly set when the tip of the carbide insert protrudes above the surface to 0.5–1.0 mm. is Permissible, if the end of the carbide insert will be flush with the tire tread.Spike is correctly set when the tip of the carbide insert protrudes above the surface to 0.5–1.0 mm. is Permissible, if the end of the carbide insert will be flush with the tire tread.

Zaripova their own bus, you will be more careful to treat them and will not forget about a smooth ride when you run (which is at least 300 km). Time spent re-studding allows you to use the bus at least another two seasons or 30 000 km of Course, tyre manufacturers such reconditioned tyres unprofitable. It is desirable that the loss of spines, the consumer purchased a new set of tires.

Insights

Re-studding will allow you to return back to the tires lost a part of thorns, but do not have much tread wear, or damage. Economically advantageous to recover this way the tire is large in size because they are expensive, and the price, e.g., 50 spikes will be a much smaller fraction of the price of a new tyre.

Self-studding (without air gun) it is heavy. With the price of installation of the stud with the material of 20 rubles and absence of 200 studs on a set of wheels the cost is about 4 000. However, self-installation will save more than two thirds of this amount.
