This past week we've got a skiff of snow every day on the roads. For max grip i could run studs, but instead I ran my usual 28C slicks. Unless you get ice, there's not much point in studs. I'll qualify that by saying that they make a huge difference in climbing traction if there is snow on the ground. On the flats, fresh snow up to two inches or so has been no problem on slicks. As soon as I have to climb [or descend], that's when things get dicey and I need the studded tires.
