I stud my own. Info (needs polishing) HERE.
aren't deep enough for studs
will take a 10mm stud (instead of a 13mm) AND they have to be brand new tires. I suggest getting the MUCH cheaper Kendas that happen to work VERY well. Monument hill is very doable- in fact, on a good snow day, I'd just run her up the shoulder and pass all the cards that are stopping on the middle of the hill. If you have GOOD electric gear that distance won't be a big deal unless it's REALLY cold.
Doing this to have people think you're nuts isn't the best reason. It's kind of a soul thing like surfing
The crazy part is just a fun bi-product
