Got a couple sets of Trelleborg's. I have also run Cold Cutters and they are a trade off. I like the traction with the Cold Cutters but I tend to spit out a lot of them, although it's nice that you can spin the tire when needed.
The carbide studded tires like my Trelleborg's have so much traction that I don't run them often because they make me sloppy and I just about kill myself when I take them off - you know, crossing wet logs at any angle etc. Also mounting the Trelleborgs has my hands looking like I have been fighting an alligator. Don't have any experience with the newer studded tires.

Trelleborgs (actually MITAS now) are the way to go. MotoRace in Massachusetts have them in stock with free shipping. Even racing winter hare scrambles with no mercy on the tires I got several seasons out of them. The set I use now are about 13 years old and still working great. The mitas tires are winter tires with studs. The rubber stays flexible in below freezing temps. Getting ready to swap them onto the yz250 in a few weeks.
