Tri-ribs are really great, they are designed to stop "side-slip", to steer and turn better by really gripping the soil or snow to control turning, or not turning. The ribs act like a plow to dig in and grip and allow you to steer straight or to control and maintain the angle you want to turn.
But, you need weight to keep the front end down for these tires to grip, best to fill the tires (Rim-Guard is the very best, or any safe liquid) and/or have steel wheel weights on them, keep the weight low, add at least 20-30# per tire and inflate your Tri-ribs to 20PSI so the tires are very firm and not flimsy. You really do need this added weight to have the tires work like they should. The front of our tractors are actually very light, it's easy for us to lift the entire front axle up off the ground by hand, and with us on the seat, it's even lighter; in driving, being light equals to a loss of traction and steering control, especially if there is any bouncing. With a snow plow up, we have the weight, but with the plow down, we're even lighter in front. Any weight behind the rear axle will also lighten the front a little, like a pivot; for the rear tires, best to have weight in or on the tires, and for snow, 100#/tire & 20PSI will do you real good (Ag tires or turfs/chains give great traction)..
You'll be very happy with the extra steering control you'll be getting (with the extra weight).
Tri-ribs with 22# (2 gal) Rim-Guard each, plus 20# lead-bar hanging in the center.

Have them on the dual stick. They work great cutting grass and also perform well with the push blade.
