I just ordered a pair of unstudded 45NRTH Wrathchilds from Mike’s Bike Shop in Moncton. They have a functional ecommerce store, so that’s pretty convenient. They were $185 each. I then ordered a set of 300 aluminum body/carbide tip studs from Amazon, and I’m going to stud them with a custom pattern this weekend. My plan is to run the middle and shoulder row on the back and an all-over pattern on the front. All told, I’m in for $450 with shipping, which isn’t bad for good rubber, but ridiculous when you think about it.
The Blizzaks on my truck cost less than fat bike tires. This is insane.
