Metal studs against payment on a two wheel vehicle sounds to me like an accident waiting to happen. Sure, traction may increase on ice but likely a major lose of traction on hard pavement surfaces where the spike will not penetrate. Due to reducted traction I can see the potential for a low side get off at every turn when counter steer is applied. U B careful and safe please.

Definitely a concern. I won't be putting studs anywhere but down the center. I'm not interested in traction in turns on ice. For those times I encounter it I slow and proceed in a straight line. Not racing around in snow.

Plan is to put half as many studs. A little experimentation will be in order.

My scruffy ET2 on a cold trip to the coast. Got it running and on the road so paint is the next big job.
