    What is the problem with the ones you are running now? Is there a specific reason or thing you would like to improve? Have you considered chains?

    I remember a post here in the past about a guy who found some rims and put on light truck tires. He said that the traction was much better than usual skid steer tires and that they tires held up well and that he didn't do donuts. If you are having traction problems, that is what I'd do, as chains can eat up pavement if you're not careful.
