    i haven't tried nokian tires yetfor vehicles but next sets will be. used them on my mtnbikes fantastic worth the $. studded is the way to go if legal. if where you live travel is prone to white/black ice or humid an freezing there is no other choice. winter specific tires w/studs. but doesn't doesn't replace driving with care an good judgment a mistake alot of people make when they get good winter studded tires.

    In Colorado, studded tires are permitted on highways year-round but discouraged due to accelerated road wear.

    Are these year round studs?

    its illegal to drive on public roads with studded tires here. its quite a reasonable restriction since we don't get more than 5 days of about 12h snowfall a winter. so unless someone is willing to change their tire in the morning and change them again after lunch, they would be driving around on clear tarmac most of the time. however, on the few days with snow i do wish i could try them out.

    There is a substantial difference between a snow tire and a winter tire. Yes stud a snow, NO do not stud a winter tire. The biggest difference is in the fact that a winter tire is designed for the wet roads of spring as well as urban snow covered roads. A true snow tire is meant for heavier snow ccovered country and suburban roads that do not get cleared as fastt and have treads closer to those of the more aggressive tires used on offroading 4 bys. These are the tires you stud. the "winter tires with the anti hydroplaning treads will be compromised on wet roads with steel studs when braking, Ive seen it happen multiple times and is why many mfgs simply stopped making the tires able to accept studs

    All-Weather tiers on an all-wheel-drive/4X4 & your set for life IMO 😉

    I have Vredestein Quatrac 5 similar to Nokian Weatherproof/WRGD3 or Michelin CrossClimate. All weather with severe weather 3pmsf logo. I live in Vermont and drive for uber. I'm not going to sacrifice dry or wet or slush traction by getting studded winter tires. I need to be able to avoid an accident in all conditions. Especially dry and slushy, which happen most often on plowed and salted roads. Packed snow is not a problem. Great thing about ice is you can choose not to drive on it. Patches of ice are fine if your tire can recover well on the other side of the patch.

    Great tutorial… Are all 4 tires studded or just the powered wheels (front wheel drive or rear wheel drive)?

    I always found good quality snow tires to be good enough without added expense or trouble of studs.

    I remember getting a lot of hesitation when I asked for studded tires in my area. Not sure why, my studded tires work wonders. It's just not very popular where I live, which is weird, because I live in the northern US.

    If you drive a heavy suv or pickup its more important to get winter tires because they don't turn or stop as easy as a light weight average car.

    I put 4 studded winter tires on my front wheel drive car and its amazing cornering, stopping. I can even go up a good size hill in snow like awd car sometimes.
