I am looking at getting a set of marathon winter tires in either the 2.00 or the 700x40c. Clearance is no issue but i see that the 2.00 has only 208 studs where the 40c has 240. i would prefer the 2.00 but i want as many studs as i can get. can anyone confirm that the 2.00 in fact has fewer studs?

thanks and happy riding.
