How do you manage swapping tires just for one day of snow / ice when the next is warmer and its melted?
Do you swap just the tire or have an entire different wheel set?
Or leave studded on even though its not needed that day and burn the tread up?
The studded tires go on the bike at the first sign of ice in the fall & stay on until spring. The studs on quality tires are carbide & will not significantly wear on dry tarmac. You can raise & lower the air pressure to adjust how the studs will contact the tarmac.
