Studded Tires Discussion (via Peter White Cycles)

This web page is intended to help educate winter cyclists about studded tires. There's a lot to read on this page, and unless you are sure you know exactly what you want, it would behoove you to read the entire page before placing your order. I've put a lot of work into this page, to help you be sure that you're getting the right tire for your needs. I think you'll find that a few minutes spent reading is time well spent. You could call and ask, but many people don't know what questions to ask. This page answers many questions you may never have thought about.

I stock Nokian carbide studded bicycle tires for winter riding on ice and snow; too many models to count. I am also stocking several Schwalbe studded tires, which now come with extremely durable carbide studs, instead of the steel studs they used to use. I'm thrilled about this, since Schwalbe makes very high quality tires and we have so many happy customers using their regular tires. Scroll down the page for pictures and descriptions of the new Schwalbe tires, including a new 20" (406mm) tire.
Call between 10AM and 4PM eastern time M-F to place an order.
In some of the photos below, the top view is a bit deceiving. Since the camera is very close to the tire and ruler, the tires appear to be a bit narrower than they are. Add 3 to 4mm to the width you see. But the relative widths are accurately shown. Also, all of the 26" tires are mounted on a relatively narrow rim. A wider rim, such as the Sun Rhyno Light, would allow the tread to flatten out 1mm to 2mm further.
