    Just curious if anyone uses studded atv tires for plowing and if they improve traction enough to make them worth while.

    I once took a bunch of 1/2 hex head sheet metal srews and loaded up both front and rear tires on my sport quad for some winter riding. Worked pretty good. Spun a few out but probably did alot more spining than you would plowing. Cheep way to go. I had like 120 in eacch rear and 80 or so in the fronts to help with steering. Give it a try.just screw them into the meat of the lugs of course.

    Years ago I purchased ice screws. I'm confident they would have worked well but I never installed them; ultimately, opting to go with chains on all fours.
