*For these applications, calculate the approximate quantity needed per tire by multiplying the tire height (in inches) by the tire width by 3.14, and then divide by 11. Example: If the tire height is 60in, and its width is 15in, calculate as follows: [60 x 15 x 3.14] ÷ [11] = 257. This tire needs approximately 250 studs.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Always check tire tread depth before installing Grip Studs®. Attach install tool to variable speed drill. Snap a stud into the tip of the install tool. Position stud firmly against a thick knob of the tire tread. Firmly apply pressure straight down while slowly screwing the stud into the tire until the prongs on the tool are buried into the rubber. Remove the tool from the stud. The notched collar on the stud should be flush with the rubber. Studs may come out if they are not adequately sunk into the rubber. Repeat procedure for all studs. For optimum traction, install studs in varied pattern (not in a straight line) on the tread so the studs can make better contact with the terrain. Caution: Studs may damage or mar floors, truck beds and other surfaces.
