I am told that you should have 30 road miles on pavement to break in the tires and I guess to set the studs, (I am not really sure)
Anyway, where I am we have not had any snow to speak of this winter and I have only got approx 15 miles in on the road with them (a few miles here and there after work) I was resigned to the fact that it would never snow this winter and stopped getting the break in miles.
Well, low and behold, we are getting some snow and ice this weekend.
If I take them out on the trail with only 15 miles on them, what kind of damage am I going to do to the tire, if any?
Should I really try tonight to get another 15 miles on them?
