    In the US they are called winter tires with studs. As, to whether they are legal to drive in a particular area…..it would depend upon the area/State. Most states now ban studded tires because they are so hard on the roadways. Here is a link to get you started.

    i have always known them as studded snow tires.
    you will have to check your local laws but in many states they are ok to use but only during winter months.
    most snow tires can be studded only as new before they have been driven.
    where i came from in snow country all of the tire shops offered studs on their new snow tires as a service.
