Hey everyone ... I posted awhile ago about tire options for winter and i said "I don't want to run chains" i have my Ag tires Loaded with washer fluid factory weights and a weight box
washer fluid was 100+ pounds
factory weights at 45 each 90
and the weight box with 100 pounds
so there is almost 300 extra pounds on the tractor once the blowers on there there is almost 500 well i tried the Combo when we got a Massive snow storm Thursday Well i Couldn't get out of the yard i found some Ice i did got out front (on pavement with almost 1 foot of snow) i got thru some of it i worked most of the day (it was difficult getting places as the roads were not plowed evey one With out 4x4 got stuck !) i did all the drive ways No problem (with drifts 2-3 feet high) well to night i touched up out front with the blower (i was going to take it off and put the blade on) and my brother asked Ty can you blow a path to my "fort" i said sure i started into the path started to spin dropped the blower tryed to blow it and spun some more next thing i know its up to the axles so i get my big chain throw in under the tire comes back some try it again just spits it out so i try to go forward i go WAY farther than expected and im REALLY stuck so i asked dad for the truck keys .. "what do you need the keys for" i got the tractor stuck like Really stuck and im going to pull it out i get i all set up with the chain he comes out "That chain better not scratch my Chrome tow hooks" IM like LOL :) ya i was just checking that We got it Out turns out i hit a bit of ice (again)causing the tires to lose traction and that caused me to get stuck on this path leading me to have to pull it out i got in the back yard and put the blade on and i cleaned up the Mess i did the front and had the blade angled it caught causing the tractor to Spin side ways and down there i am Again Stuck with the New led head lights just Blasting in the front windows i got it unstuck and in to its home (the tractor shed) i had thought i dont need massive Traction but if i put small hex head screws (like 1/8x7/16) into the lug of the tire not every lug like one screw skip a lug one screw.... do you think it would work for the Little bit of ice just the only think is i dont what to Screw up my tires .. LOL didyouseewhatididthere has any one tryed such a thing ? the tires are tubed BTW i know they do that with dirt bike tires but i dont want a massive stud (like the Screw in studs) as i drive on drive ways and metal is Really hard on Asphalt and could i take them out in the spring and put them back in come next winter
