2. I've never used studded tires,

but then, I generally don't drive over the passes in the winter. I DID have to drive over the Cascades earlier this month, and had to buy chains to do so, because our mountains and passes STILL had winter storm warnings.

I didn't need the chains, but did drive over slushy, icy, pitted and pot-holed mountain roads with my 4wd; there was both rain and snow.

Happily, my area doesn't use chemicals on icy roads. We've got cinders, which are better than sand. As a matter of fact, yesterday I saw various workers out removing the layer of cinders from the sides of our paved roads, since all the heavy winter snows have finally melted, at least at our elevation.
