- 1). Sit down in a chair and make yourself comfortable.
- 2). Grab the long-handled dikes (needlenosed pliers will not work) and pull the tire towards you so it is standing flat on its tread.
- 3). Insert the tip of the dikes gently into the stud hole and grip the tire stud. Try not to cut into the tread of the tire. Grip the stud near the top, but down onto the shaft of the stud. Trying to extract it from the carbide tip will not work.
- 4). Pry/pull the stud out with the dikes applying equal parts of caution and determination.
- 5). Work your way all the way around the tread of the tire to extract each stud. Some tires can take well over 100 studs. That's why you're sitting in a chair.
