WANT: Tires With Retractable Metal Studs (video)

Not many people 'enjoy' driving in the snow and I'm sure we can all agree not many more people like sliding uncontrollably across slick black ice... With that said, tires that deploy steel studs with a push of a button would be a welcoming addition to any winter vehicle.
Check out the design by the Finnish tire company Nokian below: 

The unique stud technology brings extreme safety in icy weather. With a press of a button, the driver can bring out the studs to improve the grip of the tire. When the studs are not needed, they can be retracted back into the tire.
