Tire choice for a 318

Hi,I have an '86 318 I bought from an old man that only drove it on Sunday's :) I'm pretty sure three of the tires are OEM and it's time for a change.I mow and snow plow with it and I'm not sure of how to choose new tires.The yard and driveway are hills.When the grass is wet the turf tires will lose grip so I was thinking of bar/lug style but would these be ok in snow and should I still use chains with them while plowing?and should the front and back be the same tread type?

I ran Bar/AG tires In the Past on My 240 for Plowing snow same for My JD 425, JD X485 The Only time the Bar/AG tires will slip is On a solid sheet of Ice. I suggest either Turf Or Rib style tires for the front. But Ag tires are Great In the snow Just Make sure Tractor is also Ballasted Properly with Frame or wheel weights:thThumbsU
