Treatise on Studded Snow Tires in Snow-less Climates

I don’t think it makes any sense for people to drive around on studded snow tires for six months out of the year in a region where we rarely see snow at all, and when we do we’re only talking about 1-2 cm of it. All those studded tires are doing on bare roads is making more potholes for everyone to slam into that are going to be a costly nuisance to fix. I don’t think much else needs to be said on this topic.
