I wish everybody who has studs would do this.  I hate walking around town
and hearing the click-click of studs on dry or wet pavement that hasn't
seen snow/ice in weeks.  If it snows, either put on chains, drive safely,
don't go out, or buy a quattro.  It's that simple, may not be cheap, but
simple.  I haven't owned studs in about 10 years.  My previous car was a
'80 RWD Mazda 626, and it did fine in the snow, with the Pirelli P44s that
are on it.
