    i could get studded, but i have to ride on the roads, so they would probably wear out. Also nashbar is out of theirs, and the only ones i have seen in a decent size was 91 dollars for one 2.3 inch tire. if you find a studded tire in a 2.3 thats 50 or less let me know

    I still don't think they're quite as "mean" as the KOT's.

    I have a Kenda Knarly that is pretty dang meaty. It's supposed to be a 2.1" tire but due to excessive hexagonal edge knobs it measures noticeably wider. ( I don't think they make the Knarly anymore )

    yeah but with those you need to make sure your hubs are always tight, the wheels must be true, otherwise you will end up with a hole in the frame.

    May be a little wide. Leave yourself room for frame clearance b/c if your hub gets loose or your wheel gets out of true, you may gain a hole in the frame.

    A Bontrager Jones would be good b/c they're not good for anything else! Panaracer Speedblaster 1.95" are ideal b/c they aren't too wide + they have perfect knobs. See the above picture.
