the W106 has studs to keep you from falling off your bike when you hit ice, but the main advantage it has is the soft rubber compound and highly aggressive tread pattern for snow, slush and mud.
with 700x40mm tyres, they might roll off the rim if you use bontrager selects.
least you want to run is a 19mm wide rim for 40mm, which are usually heavier tandem and 29'er type rims like mavic A319.
