I now have a plow blade on my little sears lawn tractor. It works, but traction is not great. Current tires are worn low impact 15 x 6.00 6. Is there a good tire for winter traction? I would expect to use them year round.

Thanks,

Tom

   get tire chains, use them int he winter then use your tires in the summer, I have Carlisle turf tires on my tractors with chains in the winter and never had any trouble.

Don't the chains dig up the blacktop?

Chains only dig up the black top if you spin them and then if you don't set and spin in one spot for a long time sealer will coat the spot and you will never know.

 

I prefer woody carbide tipped ice studs my self, easy to install and easy to remove. You can put as many in as you have raised spots on the tires.

 

Also don't for get to fill the tires with Windshield fluid made for cold weather like 20 below. Or if you are wealthy add rim guard.
