I'm curious how those studded tires behave on paved roads that aren't covered in ice or snow. I would expect them to be kind of dangerous in those conditions.

I can't say about the aerostitch studs, but the drilled & pneumaticly inserted auto studs, yes

they act and handle the same as they do on a car, you can hear the tic tic tic of studs contacting the pavement, braking distance is increased, ride accordingly, cornering traction is reduced, ride accordingly, its not like you ride 100mph in freezing weather anyway, I don't stud the outer knobs just so that if I do lean that much and need the traction cornering, I'm not on the studded portion of the tire

dangerous, not if you understand the limitations and ride accordingly
