I'm on some Facebook forums and one has pix of tractor with real agressive looking treads. Kind of Ag, yet More bars, shorter. He said what they were, I forget and will have to go back and try to find again. Claims don't need chains and weights to plow snow on his machine.  I see fellas using ATV tires, maybe this is that type, but was thinking they are much less material or lighter walls and such. Am I wrong on that?  I'm gonna go look again, but hard to find stuff again on those groups. I thought they might be worth looking into.

My favorites are Carlisle Farm Specialists. These have deep lugs and are heavy tires. The bar lugs are almost flat all of the way across the width of the tread. Anyone that plows snow knows that chains are a must and weight on the rear adds to the traction. Just a little packed snow or ice under your tires and you will spin without chains, especially when trying to back uphill. I tractor will plow snow without chains, but not very good. I did plow a little with these tires without chains, but I had to be down to the gravel when plowing uphill.

OK, went back to find. I now have the group saved to find again, heh!  Just Garden Tractors is the  group.  The tires were Kenda Exacutioners  in 25 x 10 x 12. They were mounted on a Sears, filling most of fenders, ha!  Kenda is chinese, not so neat, but aren't they all now days??  If I knew how to save a pix, would show.

 

OK, think I got it, starting to GET how to do these I think.

I had a pair of Chinese rear tires on my full size tractor.  12.5 X 38.  Had a flat in 6 months.  Sidewall rub.  3 months later another flat.  Same thing different place.  Same service guy.  Checked further and found clear around the inside of the tire cords were showing on the one sidewall.  Not constant but a place about ever 8 to 10".  Usually run about 12 psi.  Had to go up to 18 psi to keep the tube tight against the tire on the sidewall.  Might check that real close if anyone runs into Chinese tires using a tube.  Older tractors did not have tubeless rims like the newer ones do.

Those look nice & aggressive GL. I need something for my Mtd990. The 15" wheels leave little choice without paying a fortune. I've seen Atv tires on tractors & some look good. I like how the tread on these wrap around to the sidewalls.

Plowing snow without tire chains is a waste of time. I have gotten away without extra weight, but chains is a must!
