I have just a set of summer tires in very poor condition and a huge heap of studded winter tires. Selling winter tires is very hard so I got an idea to use the winter tires as summer tires with removed studs.
- Is it a good idea and how should you remove studs without damaging the tire itself?
- Can you use the tire afterwards as winter tire or will the studs become too loose? Any experience?
- Should I fill the stud-positions with something if I remove the studs?
The winter tires are W106 Nokian tyres, Hakkapeliitta.
