Also know, are studded winter tires worth it?

Similarly, can you add studs to winter tires? Winter Tire Studding. Some winter tires include pre-molded holes to allow for metal studs. When inserted, these studs dig into ice and provide increased traction in inclement winter conditions. Studded tires can damage the road, so some states limit or prohibit their use during non-winter months.
Secondly, are studded tires better than regular winter tires?
Studded snow tires literally have metal studs embedded within the tread. Although studded tires are capable of handling icy driving situations, improvements in the rubber compounds of modern studless winter tires have made them more capable of handling some of winter's most extreme driving situations.
How much does it cost to stud winter tires?
…to accommodate optional metal studs that enhance ice and hard-packed snow traction. When studded, these tires typically trade some noise and ride comfort for extra ice and packed snow traction (studding available for $15 per tire), or represent a low-cost winter tire option when not studded.
