Looking to just ride on paved trails that will have a butt load of ice. Anyone have brands that they prefer?

Second vote for Nokians, don't even think about getting non-carbide studs.

What are the advantages with the carbide studs?

I have heard they don't wear when riding on the street. Is that correct? is that it?
