I did an IRC MB5. I also studded a Kenda Millville Sticky, which Kenda says is a suitable tire for studs. Both were great, although my only fault was not drilling the holes deep enough for the studs to insert fully ( I had to get the drill back to the shop before I even got the stud gun). If you are doing them yourself, use an old tire and get your tire drill set for the right depth before you give'r on the tire you are planning on studding. Studs came from Bruno Wessel (or a Canadian distributor of his, I can't remember).

Try talking to MXcollector on Albertadualsport, he may even have some Trellies for you.
