I just picked up a pair of IRC Mudmads ($20 each) because of the glowing reviews by Shiggy and crew. I don't really ride in the mud, but the pair I picked up had spikes in them and looked like they could work decently in the ice & snow. I don't think I'd ride them in the mud because they look like they could put a hurt in the landscape and tree roots with them bitty spikes.

Anyone ever use these models with spikes, especially in the snow & ice? How'd they perform? How'd they hold up?

Those would be the Snow Mads. Same tire as the Mud Mads with the addition of metal ice studs. $20 is a great deal. MSRP was around $60.

I would not use the studded tires for most of my winter riding because of the lack of grip on rocks.

Nashbar just dropped the price by 5 bucks to $14.95 since Monday: http://tinyurl.com/3pv9c
