Thanks..

I was there earlier and had to chuckle...you can get them pre-studded. I wouldn't need them in FL but the guys up north...The front tire would be the next objective. Studded Gold Wing!

I'll avoid the obvious comment about most Gold Wings having at least one Stud...well maybe not.:roll:

I read the smaller print and found that the tires are made in Finland.

I believe they are manufactured in Finland. I had em on my car when i lived it Alaska. They are an extreme snow and ice tire. They are coated in a million ice sipes and if paired with studs stick to glare ice like glue. They will wear out fast if run on dry roads because they are designed specifically for snow and ice.
