looking for studded tires...

So as the title says, I'm looking for some studded tires. They will be for my bianchi pista. Yes its a fixed gear track bike, but I will continue riding it on the streets all winter. I don't think there will be an issue with tire rub or anything like that. So what are some studded tires for snowy/icy/winter riding on streets? And if anybody knows of a red studded tire that would be awesome! (red is my color of choice)

Check the Nokian site. The studded tires may not fit your frame. Narrow tires and studs are two different priorities. There was a thread about this last fall. Try searching the forum for "Nokian" or "studded tires". I seem to remember they were 35's at the smallest, but I'm not sure.

Agreed. Good luck fitting these.
They're going on my CX bike in November.

Call Peter White at Peter White Cycles and talk over with him. He can recommend/sell you the Nokians you need. Great service. The tires are awesome on ice.

Stay clear of the Innova studded tire if you will see anything other than ice. They work awesome on ice but fall apart on the road. The Nokians will last much longer.

I've commuted with both the Innova's and Kenda's over the last 5 years on both MTB and CX bikes, my current set of Kenda's (Nashbar branded) work so well and have lasted so long I really can't justify spending the money on the Nokians. If I was going to start from scratch I might buy the Nokians but they weren't available anywhere when I first started winter commuting. I'm generally riding on highway shoulders that have snow or ice from October until April.

Get the Nokians with only 106 studs. That is enough for street use, you do not need the more expensive ones with more studs for cityuse.I have also gone on frozen fireroads with my ancient ss roadbike with these tires, with a bit of caution they work just fine.
