Threw on some schwalbe snow studs yesterday before I went in for my evening shift. Got home well after midnight. The streets were pretty darn icy. Anyway, was skeptical about the benefits of studded snow tires, but they really seemed to help. They didn’t make a huge difference riding through snow, but on the ice they felt like money. Cranked right out of an icy Panther Hollow like I was on clear, albeit crunchy, pavement. Didn’t slip at all… Any opinions?
