I use my tractor exclusively in the winter for snow removal. last year i had 2 psi in the turf tires, and hung a milk crate full of bricks off the back. those tires bulged, but not to the point of sidewall damage. this year I plan to put the plow on the back and the snowblower on the front, so some weights will be added elsewhere (inboard of the frame underneath where the mower deck would usually live). I am trying to track down some wheel weights, but may make my own out of some brake rotors from a car.

I see some people run atv tires on their tractors. I don't want chains, as i have a gravel driveway, and the less gravel i dig up the better, plus the turf tires are weatherchecked and have slow leaks. I did buy some this winter, but for life of me and a nearby tireshop we could not get the bead to seal. I called another tire shop and they told me that some atv rims don't have a flat lip on the rim, but it's angled to act as a beadlock. I returned those tires and just assumed it wouldn't work for me.

How do you find atv tires that fit? is there a special mark or code on them indicating a standard bead profile? I think if i Had atv tires, and used tubes and liquid filled them i think i'd have no troubles. :thanku:

they would dig when they spin, the turf tires spun, but not as much once i had it loaded down and aired right down. atv tires would be aired down and liquid filled as well. chains however would dig up gravel even when not spinning.

Do you guys have atv tires on your tractors? not all atv tires are aggressive mud tires. I was thinking something like this: http://www.amin.se/mambo/index/comp.../product/088bf770952818e5984a16f8bc8a822b.jpg
