    I have bias ply that us what came on them, once their shot (hopefully not soon), I will look at snows (Nokians are the brand that come to mind). Like you my loaders are strictly snow machines.

    I may know where there's a decent used set, I'll make a call and check the size, and see if I can get some pics etc for you in the next day or so.

    Absolutely Nokians if the machines are only used on snow. We've now got them front and rear on 4 of our loaders and two tractors and front only (so far) on two of the tractors. They're pretty pricey tires, though.

    The Nokians are about $2,000.00 each; they're good for everything but mud. We've also put some recaps "Snow Plus" on our Komatsu WA320 and they're really good in snow. They were about $1,600.00 each including the casings in September 2011. If you have good casings, the credit should be about $350.00 each. The recaps were done by Pneus Lanoraie but bought through a commercial tire seller here we're no longer dealing with because of his lousy service on other stuff.

    Click on Customer Service then check the Technical Manual - Earthmoving, etc. The tires we put on our loaders are the Loader Grip.

    Their dealer network shows a couple in Barrie but I don't know if they know anything about the big stuff.

    I checked the Nokian site. The tires you guys are mentioning are pretty conventional looking. If all your work is S/R why not get some specialized snow tires for the loader?
