You will not find a better fatbike tire for a smooth ride through snowy conditions than the 45NRTH Dillinger 5. The larger cousin of the Dillinger 4, it shares a similar tread and stud profile allowing for amazing traction and confidence through tough terrain. But with its bigger footprint, the Dillinger 5 will glide through loose snow.
With 258 precisely placed concave aluminum carbide stud holes, the Dillinger 5 allows for unparalleled grip and traction, increasing your acceleration while climbing, and braking ability for better control. The concave crown creates a very sharp attack angle to the surface, resulting in increased traction. Any wear that occurs to the carbide crown creates an even sharper edge. Its tread is tightly spaced lowering rolling resistance. And with wider corner blocks you can face technical turns with confidence.
The Dillinger 5 is the biggest fatbike tire for the biggest of rigs. Take your smooth ride out in the cold, with confidence on snowy singletrack, riding through loose snow and clawing in when faced with ice.
asked by: a guest Do I have to ride pavement to set the studs
anwered by: canteau 45nrth recommends that you ride around 30 miles on the tires while avoiding aggressive braking and cornering. This can be done on dirt or pavement, but the firmer the surface the quicker the studs will get set.
During this break-in period, it will be normal to lose a few studs

The D 5 measure out to a width of 4.3 inches at 10psi. These were perfect for my 2016 Mukluk which has rear spacing that can only fit up to 4.6 inches. The beads set up tubeless on my 80mm Mulefut rims very easily. So far they have been excellent in snow and on ice. Rolling resistance is better than I expected for a studded tire. Beware that there are some with defective beads. I had one but Tree Fort replaced it no problem.
