TKC-80 with 600+ auto studs works well for me. They are much better on ice then in deep snow. The 950 is hard on tires and studs if you don't lay off the throttle a little.

In front I've a Kings and the rear is (Mitas) Trelleborg Winter Friction, both have enduro spikes on them. Some use rally car studs in the middle and spikes on sides for better ride on ice and occasional tarmac.

Rear tire is only 120 wide, but good enough for me on the stock rim.

Don't use ice spikes - they will fail as soon as you left ice. Enduro studded tires are what you need. Trelleborg is great advice (now called Mitas). Both 18 and 21 are available, don't pay attention to width, you will probably not find wider tires than 120, but they will work ok.

Post more your ride reports with studs.

I'm thinking of installing studs on IRC TIRE BR99 (140/80-18 Rear, 90/90-21 front). Going to use http://www.best-grip.com/eng/ studs.

1500 series for rear (4mm out) and 1600 series for front(3.6mm out). What do you think about the setup? Will it let me drive gently across the winter pavement to the forest/ice/snow?

One more sad thing - studs are expensive. 500 of them cost about $500.

Tire studs are available from www.brunowessel.com. You will need a stud insertion tool, drill stop and bits all available from them. I use light truck studs in TKC 80 tires about 500 to 600 for front and rear works well for mixed road conditions. Rally studs are available to but do not work well on dry roads. The stud insertion tool is the big expense, studs last year were about $60 US for a box of 1000. If you are going to ride a lot it is worth the investment in the tools to do it your self.

other studs

I use these studs which you can install without any costly special tools. Plenty different lengths and styles to choose from, for your shoes too!. Don't know if this kind of studs are available in North America.
