Something that most track owners don’t know is that Camso track treads can be studded. Look closely at the treads and you will see small circles in the tread. These circles are where ice studs can be screwed directly into the tread. Having hundreds of metal studs in your treads means extra grip on the ice without sacrificing the mobility that treads provide in snow and mud.
Frequently Asked Questions
Tracks will provide many, many miles of enjoyment and service. Track life, just like tire life, depends on a number of factors, including vehicle weight, speed, and the kind of surfaces you travel on.
Most of all proper maintenance of your tracks can help your tracks last a long time.
No – in most cases, you will need some hardware and brackets. Consult your installation guide for more information.
No. Although you gain about 4 inches of vehicle clearance with a track system installed, the additional weight near ground level and the longer, wider wheel base actually increase stability.
After the dealer initially installs your track system, changing back and forth between tracks and tires requires about the same amount of time as simply changing tires.*
*Installation time may vary depending on vehicle make and model.
Yes, and almost anything else. The tread design and extra surface contact you have with track systems give you outstanding traction on soft terrain like deep snow or mud and a great grip on rocky surfaces. Track systems also distribute weight better, providing maximum flotation to keep the vehicle from sinking in snow, mud, sand, or swamp.
Steering is about as easy as it is with tires, except when driving very slow or through heavy, wet snow or thick, deep mud.
Less than with tires! Our track systems have very low power requirements, and with the undercarriage design, you gain torque. How? The undercarriage drive sprocket is smaller than your ATV tire (by about 1/3). This gears down the power to a drive ratio that delivers more power to your tracks.
