Okay, it hasn't really snowed a whole lot, but it has snowed a few times. I put these on my daily urban commuter bike. The near-continuous rubber down the centerline, and skinny 30mm width, means that these ride like road tires most of the time. You can hear the studs going around corners. When it snows, I just let some air out, and then I can just plow right through the snow and slush without sliding around. They aren't cheap, but without these I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable riding on the snowy days.
