I have an old set of tires and I was thinking of giving it a try, any ideas on screw size? I would guess at 1/2" or 3/4".

Yep I stud my own tires. its pretty easy for trail ridding. I use "Gold Screws" for trail ridding as they are fairly cheap. For Ice ridding Ive been using "Kold Kutters"
For trail tires use probably 5/8-3/4 screws, whatever your knobs will allow. Put a few in each knob 2-3 per knob. Pattern dosn't really matter for trail ridding.
For ice ridding the stud pattern is critical as is the direction of the head, and the angle that you put the screw in the knob. I still havent mastered this one. I just blew $150 on a rear tire that is junk on the ice.
You will loose a handfull of screws every time you ride. If you wanna try to keep em in, you can use a streetbike tire as a liner. Cut the sidewalls off and fit it into the rear tire. Then use 1" screws and screw thru your knobby and into the liner. You wont loose many 1" screws. I just went to the local dealer and got a few junk front streetbike tires in different diameters and tried till I found one that fit. I think a 21" was what I used
The front tire dosn't loose many screws. You will probably want to use 5/8 on the front.
