From another post
I posted the below post in another thread just a few minutes ago. See below. Also, I like these tires because on either hardpack or or clean roads, you run them with higher pressure. Heavier snow, you lower the air pressure to engage the studs. See the below link from PWC for a picture. I have one set of 40's left at my store.
Looks like you got what you are looking for, but just a heads up, you should look at the A10's from Nokian. You remarked that you were looking for a lower rolling resistance which these have the lowest of the studded tires do to the fact of where they place the studs (more on the sides vs on the center of the tread). They also have a slightly lesser tread too. I own the 40's and love them. As for the issue of the size of the tire on your rim, I cannot speak to that personally, but I can tell you I had 37's on a pair of Ksyriums for a few weeks while I got new rims during the summer and had no problems.
Lastly, if anyone else is looking I can get you a pair of these for cheap (Nokian A10's). Probably around $40.00 each. Let me know. Would ship out of Buffalo NY.
