Kidding, but..... If I were to do it, how durable are they? I rode Rampart Range last week adn we hit quite a bit of ice on the trail, but not everywhere. Can you ride dirt without stripping the screws out?
I'll do it before I mount the M22 and S12

Thats all I buy for the rock ledge. They hook up fine and last quite a while.
When you ride in the rocks all the time you have to worry about durability over performance.

Hard core ice racers use skins to protect their tires as they wheel them down onto the ice! If want to ride in winter by all means buy a box of 5/8" Kold Kutters, You wont regret it. Just keep in mind excessive wheel spin will cost you a few studs and occasionally a knob. No big deal.

This guy does them and had his for 3 years and he hooked up great and as the tire wears, the stud sticks out more. He told us $75 labor per tire and you can run them year after year. He drills the tire and puts the biggest stud in he can. This is my plan for next year.
If you're set on screws, Dennis Kirk has the Gold Screws. I used 1/2" and didn't loose more than 5 out of 500 in a 65 mile ride.
