Nokian Stud Wear... A pictorial

Nokian 296 Studs After 4 Seasons


Nokian 300 Studs After 3 Seasons


Into-the-lug retreat is apparent. But no real complaints given the too-much-pavement mileage.

yes, and how much of that would you estimate as "too-much-pavement"?

Hmm. Tough questions that make my lack of accurate record keeping apparent.

I take them off and put them on a lot in the winter, but my best estimate would be about 4,000km of my hack riding on the 294 and maybe 3,000km on the WXC300

Dry pavement is probably about 75% of that.
