You never put studs in tires that have been driven on, only brand new ones. Those little holes fill up with little rocks and the stude push them through and you have little holes.
Ive lived up in Fairbanks for over 30 years, and have never used studs. They are for people that just came from Arizona or some such place.

|Griffith||I'm definitely a newb when it comes to studded tires.. If I get the 35 inch duratracs, can I get them studded for the winter? And then de-studded for the summer?|

|907farmer||If this coming winter is anything like last winter, your going to want studded tires.|

|Griffith||Damn, I was wanting to run 35 duratracs all year around :/|

|907farmer||Studded and not 35in. I run 31in studded durning the winter. I'm not sure what the last guy was saying. Summers up here are fine. Winters can be harsh but such is life. You'll enjoy being up here. But I am sorry you have to come up in the middle of winter.|

I'll be coming up to Alaska in January to live for the next 3 years. I'm looking to to do a 3 inch BDS lift, with 35 inch tires. But i'm not really sure what kind of tires to get for the "Alaskan" weather. Any input is greatly appreciated!
