Specifications – Traffic Spikes – TireShark™ Model 2500


Force required to form this steel is 57.5 tons. 1/4 inch plate steel. 1 3/4 inch deck height. 2 inches spike height adds to the overall height of 3 3/4 inches. Recommended for vehicles up to 80,000 pounds per axle maximum at 5 mph. It is important to limit the traffic to speeds of 5 mph. Reflective signage as well as speed bumps can be helpful to slow down traffic.

Many highways allow a maximum of 20,000 pounds per axle without any special permits. Most rear tractor and trailer axles are designed to support 34,000 pounds per axle maximum. Entire tractor/trailer weights, combined and loaded, typically weigh no more than 80,000 pounds. Our traffic spikes are designed to take higher weights, therefore helping them to resist abuse.

Ultra-low Deck Height. At only 1 3/4” in height, you’ll never have a serious contact issue between your Porsche, Audi, or Corvette. The lowest typical sports car from the factory has a clearance of 4” from the ground as seen in Audi sports cars. Many sports cars are at least an inch higher than that! This image also shows the overall spike height of 3 3/4”, standard. You can choose an overall spike height of 3 1/2”, free of charge, if you’d like to further minimize the chances of contact with air dams, etc.


All One Way Traffic Spike bearing surfaces are powder coated and easy to replace, eliminating the need to replace the entire spike system due to wear or abuse.

Included, free of charge, is the super-simple one way traffic spike latch down mechanism. This allows you to effectively lock the spikes in a downward position on days when you need 2 way travel such as move-in/out.
