I prefer turf tires filled with RV fluid and wheel weights with chains. I snow blow however, don't use a blade.

Cat??

I assume you're asking me?

 

I've purchased from Tires-easy four times in the last five or so years.  Car tires twice and tractor tires twice.  All transactions went smoothly, no issues.  They're the American branch of Delticom which is Europe's biggest online tire retailer.  The name is kind of cheesy but they're not a typical fly-by-night website.  They seem to have, at worst case, very competitive pricing and often have the best price when shopping around.  If you check a few GT tire sizes and only need basic turfs, they have ridiculously low prices on some of the cheaper Chinese brands.  You can often buy new from them cheaper than what crappy used are selling for locally.  The other thing I like on the automotive tire side of things is that they carry a HUGE selection of brands.  Choice is good.

 

As far as Nanco / Trac-Gard goes, I've purchased three or four pairs of various models of their tires so far.  They're pretty standard Chinese tires.  I've not seen a whole lot of quality difference among any of the Asian brands??  Round and black.  The only issues I've seen reported, and this isn't just the Nancos, is that they're shipped scrunched up and sometimes are difficult to get the bead to seat.

If you are not in a hurry to mount the tires, punch the tread in and make a "square" tire out of them and let them sit for a few days. The cheaper 2pr stuff will still go back to flat when you try to mount them

With scrunched tires, I cut at least 4 pieces per tire of 2x2 or 2x4 long enough to put between the beads to where it stretches the tires out to the max.  Leave them this way a couple days and usually getting beads to seat isn't an issue.

I have R-4 industrial tires on my HT23, they are a good all around tire, they don't damage the grass, but also work good in the garden. I pushed snow with them last year and I had no problems. I am going to fluid fill them this year.
