MOst of the Nokian winter tires have carbide tipped studs. They are reported to not wear down on dry pavement although I can't attest to it. I am far to cheap to spring for nokians and we get far too little ice to justify it.
Notice, that i mentioned ice, not snow. Studs are for ice. THere are suitable tires without studs for Snow, like aggressively treaded regular MTB tires.
