Re: Tire/wheel dilema
I have skid steer tires with chains and weights on one of my tractors used for tilling. They are stiff and do not work well for snow plowing. The tread is too broad to get traction.
As Lance stated, my turf tires with chains and weights work well for most needs like snow plowing and pulling a trailer.
We don't have many options with the stock rims on a 990. 15" truck snow tires do work ok.
