    I love the Nokians. Check out Peter White Cycles. Great for icy plowed roads. I wouldn't use them on unplowed snow though. They're not cheap but will last you at least 2 seasons.

    I had studded tires years back when I still had a MTB.

    I tried making home-made ones, they all were lousy. I tried a few different ways of making them.

    Then I bought a pair of the expensive ones for $250, they worked 10X better.

    Get ones with LOTS of studs, and they will ride as steady as if there's no ice at all. Go slow (<20 mph!) and ride gently and they will last several years of winter-only riding.
