Studded Tires - self tapping carbide studs

Hi all,

I have an old Raleigh Sports with 26 1-3/8 tires that I use to commute during the winter. I came across some self-tapping carbide studs:


but the tire must have 5-6mm of tread depth. Since my tire choice is very limited can I use these studs on a non-knobby tire? Is it a big deal if I puncture the casing as long as I use a liner or will they fall out?

You might check icebike.com. That's a good winter cycling site, and I think I saw something about making your own studded tires there a couple of years ago. Seems to me they used sheet metal screws with a Mr. Tuffy, but I'm not sure.
