Please be courteous to our local hosts and fellow WAG participants by following all event rules and local ordinances while at WAG Ice Trials events.
The WAG studded tire rules were designed to maximize driving fun and grip on the ice while keeping damage and deep grooves in the ice to a minimum.
The nice people of Hustisford WI are happy to have law abiding driver’s visit and shop the corn free gas pumps and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the local diners. This year the Rock River Bowl Bar & Grill at 96 South Lake Street is closed.
Drivers not running studded tires will use the same car classes as WAG Rallycross.

The WAG standard for Studded Ice Racing tires is the Menards Studded Ice Racing Tire in 13", 14" and 15" sizes as long as you can find them or the newer Prime studded ice racing tires produced since 2013. This is a re-cap style tire featuring the studs through the cap adhered to the outside of the tire carcass.
Drivers using Menards/Prime studded tires will fall into one of the following Classes based on number of drivers in each;
S/A – Studded, AWD, S/F – Studded, FWD or S/R – Studded, RWD
In the event that the Menards/Prime tire will not safely fit a car a self-made studded tire substitute may be allowed.
All self-made studded tires must pass WAG Technical Inspection for Compliance and Safety. These tires may use a bolt through the tire carcass no larger/longer than 5mm [#10] or 1/4" will be accepted if it is sharpened, with one nut on the opposite side of the carcass with up to two washers no larger/longer than 1" allowed on each side of the carcass under the bolt head and the nut. The bolt may not protrude more than 5mm through single nut on the outside of the tire carcass.
These rules serve the primary goal of ice surface preservation for the safety of ALL Drivers.
The through bolt/nut "studs" must be sealed to the tire in such a way as to hold air indefinitely without leaking. In the event of a sudden tire deflation on Ice Trials course during a practice or timed run, the car must be driven off the racing surface immediately so as not to impede any following car[s]- if the car cannot return to the paddock area under it's own power, it will be towed back by the WAG Course Control [tow] vehicle. This will only be allowed once per event day- if it occurs a second time, the car and it's times will be deleted from that day's competition. You are encouraged to have at least ONE back up studded tire and inflation tools as needed.
There may be no more than 135 studs on 13" tires, 150 studs on 14" tires, 170 studs on 15" tires or (new for 2014) 185 on 16” tires.
Drivers using self-made tires that do not fall under the Menards Tire Classes above will not be allowed to run the event[s]. There will be no unlimited stud classes this year. Motorcycle tires mounted on an automotive wheel are not allowed. They are not weight loaded for cars.
Screw-in type studs are not allowed.
If your tires do not meet our Home Made Tire rules, they will not be allowed to run. They must be inspected by our tech officials and approved. If your studs do end up damaging the race surface significantly you may be asked to remove them and you will be able to compete in a standard tire class for the rest of the event.
NOTE: Studded Tire cars with studded tires that do not conform to these rules are not acceptable and they will not be allowed to race at following events on same studded tires, until the studded tires are modified to conform with these rules.
The WAG Tech Committee will inspect and rule on any items outside the normal WAG Tech.
Questions or Requests for Exceptions must be submitted in writing through the Messages on WAG Facebook page.
