I would skip studs all together and get a set snow specific tire. They are better on snow and mixed road surfaces. I have had amazing results with Bridgestone Blizzaks and Nokian Hakkapallittas. Even on the icy hills in Seattle from a dead stop my Subaru will pull right up. People always look in amazement. And to answer your question specifically no they will not hurt your car .
