    700c studded snow tire

    I ride a Gary Fisher 124 Dualsport and I’m looking for a wide 700c studded snow tire for winter commuting. Last winter I rode on Nashbar’s 700x35c studded tires but find these too narrow. The stock tires are 700x42c. I’d like to get the widest tire available. Would anyone know if one is exists?

    Interesting you should mention this. I looked yesterday and there are a few sites that carry tires.
    You want a 700x35 tire. He're my notes from yesterday.
    Nokian Hakkapeliitta W106 for road bikes. It's 700c x 35mm or 700x45mm
    The 35mm should fit any touring, hybrid, or cyclocross bike.
    Cost: 700x35mm $ 50.00 each. In stock.

    Thanks, madhouse. I doubt I would’ve ever found that website. I think the 700c Hak W106 45mm tire should suit my needs.

    ... also thanks to Becca and huffypuffy. The Peter White site appears to be the only one with 700c studded tires.

    I bought the Nokian W240 (700 x 40c) tires from Gypzybikz in Germany. No problems getting them delivered to the US.

    They are great tires. I understand Peter White may soon be carrying them too. They're not really 40mm wide but they are wider than the W106.

    ??? I don't think I found my Nokians too narrow. I was just looking at them today, and I don't remember there being any problem with that, other than when I went across the frozen lake, the studs did not purchase, and I slid all over the place.

    Actually I prefer a narrow studded tyre, but my riding is almost exclusively on paved roads. In the woods it would probably be a different story.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
