    Am thinking about running studded snows this year. I have a few friends that run them and they think its the best thing since slice bread..

    My concerns are about putting scratches in peoples driveways when the wheel spins.

    Come spring i dont want a bunch of angry customers saying i ruined their driveways.?

    Anyone have thoughts on this?/

    I would never run studs on a plow truck, just for what you stated the damage to the drives will show up.

    I run studs on all of my trucks and i always will. In 10 years we have never had a problem with a driveway or a lot.

    I dont spin them on purpose....

    There is always a point where everyones tires will spin, even loaded..

    I dont plan on spining my tires ..

    just concerned about damaging the driveways..
