NON studded winter tires?
I was heartbroken when I went to mount my "new" fenders on my old Schwinn Woodlands yesterday and found the slightest separation between the tread and gum wall on the original OEM knobbies. Now I am forced to buy a set of new, not as cool, tires for it. So, for cheep, cheep, cheep tires should I go knobbie or street to get around when there are some imperfectly cleared roads? I am not planning on going out in storms or any thing like that just running local errands when the roads are mostly clear.
