Well, I just got Polaris EZ-steer carbide runners for my snomobile. I am going to install them next weekend. My dad said instead of studding my sled I should try these first, they should help a bit with steering(especially crossing roads). I'll let you know how they feel. By the way, my Polaris is a 94 and I havent broken 1,000 miles on it yet, mines the "baby"....all the other sleds have over 2,000 miles on them:D

New runners are nice, but wont help when it comes to stopping or starting or just general saftey and control like studs would. I think if you do stud, you will be very happy with the results.

You know carbides are not supposed to help you turn on roads right? Pretty much the best way to cross a rode is make sure you are pointed at your destination when you hit the pavement. They will steer a little when new on roads from my experience, but after only a couple hundred miles of wear they won't help on roads. But they should help on the trails a lot. I try replace my carbides every 1,000 miles, usually once or twice a year.
