Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Studded Winter Tires
Though the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge is not a true studded tire in that it comes studded straight from the factory, its stud-like tread pattern allows it to qualify for this list. Developed from racing applications, the Winter Carving Edge boasts high levels of traction on snow, ice, and slush. The stud openings accept standard TSMI #12 studs, and go a long way towards enhancing traction on slippery surfaces and even glare ice.
Though the Winter Carving Edge features sharp reflexes on winter-beaten surfaces, its dry and wet performance suffers due to the nature of the metal studs. The Pirelli Winter Carving Edge is a great tire overall, and its affordable pricing only adds to the overall value.
