    After wrecking the truck box last year plowing a hill Im not messing around this year. I want good tires and studs and maybe auto chains. I keep seeing the question "blizzaks vs studs" why not both?

    As far as I know, and Im no expert... but no.

    I've been told that the rubber to too soft to hold a metal stud in place. The tires softness along with major siping on all possible surfaces make them amazing in all wintery weather.
