    Ice racing a 14/12 mini?

    So I got the bug yesterday after riding my buddies TTR125 ice bike (it was an easy call). Most of them ride TTR125 so I might be looking to get on of those next year when they show up for sale in the spring. But I have my SR160TX and they do make ice tires in 14/12. I just wonder how they will compare to the 19/16" wheels they run? I'm pretty sure I have them beat on the straights though .

    I just got done studding my tires on my ssr125 they work great. Nobody makes a 14/12 pre studded tire trust me I've looked everywhere. The way I did it was serious overkill. I put 1 1/4 concrete screws through half of the lugs then force threaded a 1/4 20 nut on each if cost much less that special ice studs. There are a bunch of how to's on YouTube on this process

    You must have missed the one guy who makes most of the motorcycle ice tires in the US -

    http://www.frpoffroad.com/Mini-ice-t...atalogId=-1039

    He makes 14/12 tires too. Those look cool but I don't want to be riding anywhere near you with them!

    They also make ice screws that don't have studs like that. Just a raised crown on the head. They work great we used to ice race minis years ago
