It's starting to get cold around these parts (Upstate NY) and I have encountered slippery roads a couple of times. Ordered and installed a pair of Nokian Hakkapeliitas 106W from SpeedGoat.com. These must be properly broken in for 30 miles. Questions I have are:
a) can I leave them on from now until March/April and ride them even when there's no ice/snow on the road?
b) can I ride them on dirt/gravel trails?
