What is a lug??

I have seen at least 2 of these signs around town. What is a lug and why are they prohibited?

Lugs are screws or "studs" protruding from tires, designed to provide more traction in icy or deep snow conditions. They also tear up pavement, hence the prohibition on their use.

That's what I thought. Studded tires. Who are you?

It's not studded tires. It's spikes, lugs or cleats (much bigger than the studs on tires), or metal track tread.
