    Studded Tires. Best? Cheapest?

    Best for the $?
    I have read that the pointed studs are not ideal. Not worth the $?
    Other Suggestions?

    "Best" depends on conditions and what will fit your bike.

    I have tried the original pointed 45nrth studs. They were better than nothing. Concave bikestuds are a great value and work better. 45nrth XL studs and Terrene crown studs are a step above that, but more $$. I have found the XL studs to be larger than desired as they will grip so well as to tear themselves out of Dillingers.

    Appears to be the same tire, so better make sure it's the studded version for $109 before purchase.

    Yes, check the part number vs the Vee site to see which one has studs and which one does not.

    I ran Vee Snowshoe XL with standard "short" studs, and they work- I could ride the ice ribbon we had for XC trails, but they are a little "slow" otherwise. "Traction has a cost"

    Cake Eaters are faster, with fewer short (but concave) studs. (180ct)
    Studding your own Vees you could run tall studs on the outside, shorts to the center, as you see fit.
    I know when the trails turn slick, or if you're heading for waterways, nothing else will do.
