    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.

    Wow. They seem almost new. How many miles would you guess you had in each picture? jim

    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.

    they don't seem to have any wear...try slicing 1/16th of rubber off around the sunken studs?
