Removal of stripped primary screws

Hi Brian, you might try a die grinder with a round steel ball head to remove the screw heads. Good luck and have nice day.

How to stud your bicycle tires for winter riding

Slipping on snowy and icy roads in winter? Don't give up riding, just add some studs to an old pair of tires.
1. Either get a hold of some old bicycle tires that still have tread on them or buy a new pair.
2. Poke a pin through the thick tread part of the tire to measure its thickness.
3. Find some metal screws that are just a little bit longer than the thickness of the thickest rubber tread of the tires and have a tapering head so when screwed in fit flush with the rubber.
4. Drill holes through the treads in the tires smaller than the size of screws you have.
5. Screw the screws through the inside out in the tires until the are all the way through and sit flush with the inside of the tire.
6. Screw in all the screws making alternating patterns between the treads (ever other tread, every 2 treads, etc.) The more screws you use the longer it will take but in the end you will have better traction.
7. When you have completed screwing in all the screws wrap a piece of duct tape over the top of all the screws to protect your tube from them.
8. Place the tires back on the rips and pump up the tubes and enjoy!
***Be careful, the screws are sharp and will scratch or cut you! You definitely don't want to ride to close to someone or hit a pedestrian with your tires.

I have a 2009 ford focus that wears tires from the inside tread and prematurely

It could be ball joints or tie rods or even a bad strut, check the strut and see if it is oily i would think that is the culprit. you mat try having the alignment done at another shop the one you are using may be out of spec.

At low speed have a wobbly feeling

Generally, low-speed wobbles are caused by defective tires.
Look at your tires' tread and run your hand over each tire. If you can see (or feel) the tread shift away from the normal pattern, it's likely the tire has a broken belt (most tires have a steel radial belt the wraps around the tire, which is buried underneath the tread) - occasionally they can separate from the tire, causing a terrible wobble-ley feeling. (Ever seen those strips of tread on the highway? that is the result of not having the problem fixed when first noticed).
It could also be other problems such as a loose front-end, the tire being out-of-balance, or your car wheels not being aligned properly.
If you're not comfortable checking yourself, I suggest having a mechanic or automotive technician take a look.

There is a wooble or dragging sound in front tire what colud it be?

Assuming all lug nuts are tight, there could be several problems causing the wobble/dragging sound.
  • Bad bearing - a bad bearing will grind and vibrate
  • Bad ball joint - a bad ball joint will cause wobbling of the wheel.
This is a potentially serious problem and should be looked at immediately. Without knowing more (improper tire wear, shudder when applying brakes) one of the above is the most likely cause of your problem. You'd do well to have the wheels pulls and examined right away.

Spark plug pop out when warmng up and wat tighten

Either it is the wrong spark plug or you have stripped threads.

If the treads are stripped, you can buy a kit to fix it or re-tap the hole. Worst case scenario, you need a new head.

Lamp replacement

You defiantly need to get the stripped screw out. When I encounter a stripped screw, I use my dremil tool with a cutting wheel on it to cut the screw off. After you do finally get the screw cut off ( and this can defiantly be a pain straken ordeal ) you should be able remove the remaining screw bottom with a pair of needle nose pliers. Replace the lamp at that point and find a screw with a bigger diameter ( a serf tapping would work well ) and tread it back. Good Luck. I do know you are in for a frustrating time, but with a lot of Patience, you'le do well.
