I like the idea of a "lug stud" but have a hard time believing they will hold up.  I am skeptical because there is not much shear area on the treated portion of the stud.  It seems to me that the head would shear off when accelerating or braking hard on ice or hard pack.  Once the head breaks off, how do you get the threaded portion out of the lug?  Do you leave it in there?  Have you ever ridden a sled with a few studs missing?  The track is out of balance & you can feel it.  Granted the lug stud is much lighter so the impact should be less.
Has anyone reading used lug studs?  What is your riding style & typical riding conditions?  Tell us how you like them!
