The Bailiff maintains order through the most adverse winter conditions. The 4.5" width provides the surface area needed to stay on top of the fluffy stuff while tall, widely-spaced knobs improve braking and cornering traction on packed snow. Available with or without carbide studs pre-installed, all versions feature 312 stud pockets for unbeatable traction on ice. The Bailiff's tubeless-ready 120tpi casing provides a supple ride feel, conforms to all surface conditions, and minimizes rotational weight. Its snow-specific compound remains soft at extremely cold temperatures to provide unparalleled traction on the most frigid days of the year. Refuse to call winter the "off" season? Pedal on with the Bailiff.
So when it comes down to it, do you want a studded or non-studded tire? The studded version is going to provide more bite in icy conditions.
