The Mitas C-16 Motorcycle Tire studs have a mushroom shaped base, steel body and carbide tipped protrusion. At our warehouse we drill the holes, we inject bonding glue and then use a unique machine to insert each stud. This same process is used in Europe. It is very time consuming.
Beware of the imitations!
This is the Mitas C-16 Motorcycle Winter Friction Compound cross-competition tire.
Note: These winter tires are specially designed for winter snow and ice off road riding only. They are not to be used on bare frozen ground as excessive wear and tread damage may occur to tire and studs. These studded winter tires are shipped with carbide tipped rally studs installed by our special pneumatic machine. Automotive studding tools will not work with our unique shaped, long studs, which are glued in position. These studded winter tires are high performance specialty off road only tires and do not carry any guarantees or warranties what so ever.
MOTORACE has been studding motorcycle tires for winter use for over 20 years in the USA. There was a name change from Trelleborg to Mitas. Same tire, same rubber – just a name change. The Mitas C-16 Motorcycle Tires are NEW PRODUCTION and ready to get out in the snow!
