I came into this forum looking for info about studded tires, cus I just moved to Montana and am going through bike withdrawal. I want to be able to do short rides to the drug store and such, but other than the 1/2 mile of main road I'd be on, no other roads are salted, so it's all packed down snow for the most part.

I've never heard of any of the brands and models in this thread...any suggestions?
You want a tire with carbide studs as they last much longer than non-carbide ones. Nokian seems to be the brand of choice, and despite their high cost they are an excellent value. I'm on my third winter with mine and they show little sign of wear.
