I am IMPRESSED!!!

The 1886 is FREE, Free at last :D

I got the CST Ancla tires, filled with Rim Guard put on the 1886, and it was like I was on dry ground.

They put in 10 Gal per tire, which would be about 110# per tire. So, that's a good 220# on the rear now, and it made all of the difference in the world.

Those cleats dug in, and PULLED. No slippage at all, just flat out grip.

Sweet! Wheel weight is the best place to put ballast IMO. It is right where it needs to be to give more grip, lowers your centre of gravity and doesn't load the rear axle.

Yeah, I know :D

But, I was POOPED after rasslin with them tires.

I'll try to get some for y'all after the snow quits.

That'sright...I said SNOW :dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

I'm HOPING that we get enough to use the snowcaster on the 1256. If not, I'll scrape it off with the FEL.
