TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF BESTGRIP STUDS PLEASE FOLLOW CAREFULLY THE ADVICE BELOW
(ESPECIALLY WHEN USED IN COMPETITION)
Do not use tyres with a very soft rubber compound since these will not retain the studs properly. Do not remove any existing studs already mounted into the traditional tyres, but supplement them with additional BESTGRIP’s studs. You can put the stud in the premoulded hole (designed for the conventional studs above) or between the slots, but the optimal situation in every condition is done by mounting the stud to full depth, in this way, it isn’t necessary to use glues.
ALWAYS: After installing the studs run in for a few miles using a very moderate speed, then check the security of the studs and retighten if necessary. In competition conditions check them every 30 km and in road conditions at least every 1.000 Km
INSTRUCTIONS TO GLUE STUDS OPTIONAL REQUIRED ONLY FOR COMPETITION
- Make holes with the same depth as the length of the stud penetration using a very sharp tip with a diameter of 3.00 mm less than the diameter of the thread of the stud, (ex. diameter thread nail 9.00 mm, drill with 6.00 mm diameter).
- Fill the hole with acetone, leave for a few minutes and then clean it by blowing with compressed air or dry with absorbent paper.
- Soak your studs in acetone for a few minutes, then lay them on a paper towel and let it evaporate.
- Fill the hole with glue, making sure that you enter to the bottom, screw the stud in the correct position without interruption and let everything dry at least 48 hours, at a temperature of at least 16 ° Celsius.
ALWAYS: Run in a few miles with the tyres just mounted using a very moderate speed , then check the status of the nails and register if necessary (if you have moved or if have not glued). Control them in sport at least every 30 km. All the nails BESTGRIP are covered with a black or silver substance through a special treatment designed to improve the adherence of the nail to the rubber of the tyre..
Bestgrip recommends the cyanocrilated glues: Loctite 435.
To carry out all these operations comply with all applicable safety standards of the products used (for example)
- Protect your eyes
- Wear gloves
- Wear the mask etc etc ..
If you need to use longer studs than those the tire can accomodate then anchor them more in the canvas to avoid losing them and if you go at risk drilling is reccomended to use the anti-puncture liquid.
Warning: in this case the tire has a very short endurance.
There are different types and brands. We recommend those based gel, which does not spoil either the tire or the rim and washed with water if you wanted to remove it, and we propose:
