Buy what YOU want, Ag's look cool and work well, turf's also work very well.  IMHO you could put a set of chain's on a completely bald tire and with in reason, would have NO problems. I have a ford lgt 165 with ag's on it that I use to mow with and never had problems with chewing up the lawn, I also have a 165 with turf's on it ,chain's and weight's, that I plow snow using a 54 inch plow. The only time I've been stuck is when I pushed a little too far a put the front tire's in a ditch. Call me cheap but I only buy tire's when the air comes out faster than i can put it in, but when I do it'S AG'S....They just look so much cooler      Thank's and good luck in your choice
