Need Some Traction? Stud It!
Whether you get around on 2 legs or 4 wheels, small lag screws can provide cheap traction, say Bernie and Jackie Legg of Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia, who were featured in a recent issue of Rural Delivery magazine.
  The Leggs weren’t looking forward to buying snow chains for their snowblower at about $150, so they came up with the idea of studding the tires. They spent about $5 on some small lag screws and used an impact wrench to insert them into the tread on both tires.
  While Bernie was studding the tires, his wife was complaining that she was losing traction in her rubber boots while walking the dog, so guess what? Yup, she got studded boots as well.
