Question Lookin for a studded mc tire, -PIC-

Any real Winter riders out there? I'm looking for a studded mc tire with
studs similar to a cars snow tire, but a little longer than the average stud..
That came out sounding a little funny...I'm really lookin for a genuine mc
snow tire.
The studs in the picture are more like spikes and too long for pavement, they
would work on ice very well.

Those are racing slicks with Ice screws in them, Had a Quad we raced on Ice the same way.

I guess it is a bit softer when you whipe out on the snow...

I think they were Bridgestones. Don't remember for sure. I should be in the area of the store that had them tomorrow. I'll see if they have any then and let ya know for sure.
