New guy Questions???

Well, I'm the new guy here and I'm starting to get my bike ready for this winter.

I did a search, and got a lot of info

My question:

A) I want a pair of studded tires this winter. I mostly ride urban streets (ice, some deep snow, slush) But, I ride aggressively and like lots of traction. Should I get a pair of Nokian 106 studded, 160 Mount and Ground, or go broke on the extreme 294s or W240s?

B) I have a giant upland bike right now with 26 *1.90 wheels. Can a 2.10 tire fit or is that too much.

They'll fit fine.

The sizes written on 26 inch tires are practically meaningless anyway--especially for the sizes that cluster around 2 inches.

I have been reading that.

I think I might go for broke with the extreme 294's
