I've been waffling back and forth between using chains on my front turf tires (16 x 6.5 - 8) for the winter months to get that added traction I need when snow blowing OR bite the bullet and buy a tri-rib tire.
Well, I decided I'd bite the bullet and purchase the tri-rib tires. Easy enough one would think. So, I went to Miller Tire's website to secure my new tires and to my wonderment (and partial bewilderment) I was faced with more options that I was prepared to deal with.
Here's what I found:
Before I launch into what I need from you let me tell you a bit about what I'll be using my Case tractor for. I maintain (4 seasons) a long dirt lane (100-150 yards). I blow snow, grade the drive way, till the garden in the spring and fall and collect leaves (hydra-vac attached to mower) in the fall. I have a newly refurbished K-2 cab (I believe) on my tractor and I have two sets of rear tires (ags and a turfs with chains). My rear wheels are weighted with approximately 60 lbs. of weight per wheel.
This is where I need your help (based on experience more than arm chair hypotheticals....please). Have you had any experience with these three tires on your tractor? What was your experience regarding longevity, traction, etc. What would you recommend for my situation. Thanks.
