Do you know of any manufactured ice tires available other than YouTube ones?

I have some experience with driving on ice with rc cars.  What are you looking to run them on?

I've done ice rally with a 4 wheel drive touring rally car.  I used Hpi Pirelli tires.  I was suprised at the traction that I got.  I think it has something to do with the dirt in the ice.  It was a large puddle at a construction site the size of a large pond.  I could get the tires to spin no problem, but I could just point and shoot the car anywhere I wanted. 

I guess I'm trying to say that the ice might not be as slippery as you think due to imperfections from nature.

I'm thinking for fun or possibly a one time event on a pond if it ever gets cold enough this year. The serpentine sanctuary at bottom of king Georgewhere the kids ice skate or an ice arena or tthere'sa decent pond at cloverdale fairgrounds beside stetson bowl. be cool to rally on ice. I found ice spikes for Rc cars online also. A glue and screw type build.
