Snow tires

Ok I need some advice on which tire to buy for trail riding in the winter. I was looking at the Bridgestone M101 and M102. Are there any others I should consider? Thanks in advance!!

Any knob will do if you stud them with sheet metal screws (cheap) or ice racing screws (expensive) or if your budget allows; there are some pre-studded tires available that use a long stud that is supposedly tuff enuf for rocks. I haven't tried them though. Maybe someone out there has.

Where can I find the tires with the studs in them already?

check out the pics at the start of this thread, they are running Trelleborg studded tires. Expensive but look where they can take you. I would think that any supplier should be able to get them for you.

Have fun

Screw studded tires wont work out to Colorado. Too many rocks. Youl tear those tires up in one ride doing that.

YOu need the trelly style carbide tiped tires. Check out these guys

They have what you need for snow riding. They are expensive...But worth every penny.

Dirt Rider tested the Trelleborg tires in their December issue. Page 178.

I may be able to help you out. PM me.

Trelleborg has been popular here, now Michelin is also on the market but sometimes under the BFGoodridge label.

Go pre-studded for mixed trail ride. Nothing else will last.

Seems like everyone is leaning towards the studs which I haven't tried yet but I would think the studs would mainly help on ice. If you're going to be riding in a bit of powder check out a TerraFlex, I did a snow ride with them last winter with a buddy who was on an S12 and there was a day and night difference when we swapped bikes. The snow was so soft I needed something that would scoop the snow as it was a lot closer to sand than ice.

trials tires are great I have been riding single track in the snow for the last month they are incredible great in almost any condition
