I got a pair of Nokian studded tires a few weeks ago, too. I went with A10 700x32. We don't get a lot of snow here in Springfield, IL, but I want to be prepared, especially for when precipitation might be freezing on the way home, etc. I haven't put them on the bike yet, but will do so a couple of days before we are forecast for icy stuff.
My regular tires are kevlar-reinforced Kenda 700x32 that I run at 100 psi. The Nokians I bought are rated for 58 psi. I know I will have more rolling resistance to work against. Should I be worried about more frequent flats than with my kevlar tires? Does the knobbier tread on the Nokians help any with that?

Reason: had inflation pressure of Nokians wrong & have corrected it
