Studded tires on a BMX?
I live just outside of DC, so we don't get too much snow, but when we do it is typically nasty icy/slushy and is pretty much impossible to ride my fixed gear with 700x25 tires in. I have a crap BMX lying around that I would be willing to sacrifice to the weather: would it be wise to try to ride this in the snow/ice/rain if I took precautions such as studded tires? Can anyone recommend some 20" studded tires that may work? Recommendations on any other upgrades that would snow proof my BMX? Has anyone ever tried this before? Am I being an idiot?
I know this is stupid but I would just like some validation for my sanity.
