    I just put those same tires on a s185 last week. They really make a difference in speed and traction. Mine isn't a 2 speed though, that thing is going to be dangerous fast.

    Westside Tire in Hamel, MN would be my guess.

    Are those dedicated snow tires...or just reg all weather semi tires? I'm sure its an improvement over stock, and a couple mph faster.

    Could you post the supplier? also it looks like you have an larger bucket but does a standard bucket sit somewhat level or is that why you changed buckets also?

    Not to hijack thread but those tires will lift machine almost 7 inches from a 10x16.5 or four inches from a 12x16.5 tire. I had to do some fab work to allow my avalanche snow pusher to sit level. With a bucket it isn't so bad because you never really run the bucket flat on the ground like you would if you were grading dirt. Westside tire in MN sells these snow kits. The tires are just recapped semi tires and I don't know where the wheels come from. A buddy of mine says Pioneer rim and wheel makes them, but I am not sure. I paid around $1,300 out the door for my set.

    I have a set on my 2Speed S250 and i just took some off of a gravity box that we have at the farm and they mounted up just fine, idk if anyone else has done that but it has worked great for me.

    some directional winter deep caps would work good on them rims, also if you are worried about height then you could go with a lo-profile tire, cut off a couple of inches

    bucket i bought from a guy off craigslist that had it made for a TLB and i welded a skid steer plate on it and put mesh across the top thing works sweet. it works fine tho with either tires along with my blade. pretty sure its only 3.5 inches taller. yes the rims are a 8 on 8 argiculture rim with recap semi tires. no pioneer rim doesnt have them. westside had a heck of time getting them lucky i got a connection there because there is a waiting list about 20 long and some how managed to get a set.

    grosser397 Thank You for posting pics. Could you list what the actual tire size is? Are you going to use these tires for regular skid steer work as well?

    Dowd0027 and Plowingkid35 could you post pics as well. I have similar sized machine and been looking at options for tires for some time.

    Thank You

    Tommy what size tires are those? We've been thinking about getting some for the 445 Case.

    I'm picking up a set tomorrow, they are the 245/70/19.5 size. I think they are 34.75" tall, had to measure to make sure they would fit on my Case 440. You guys still like them after using them for a season?

    Thanks for the heads up on the ag rims, will have to check that out.

    I absolutely LOVED mine, everything worked out great for me, the only problem that I ran into was on my A-300 because that machine has the all wheel steer option, but other than that I would have to say that its been great for me so far.

    I don't know how I missed this thread, if I would have found it earlier I would have tried putting a set together on my own. The dealer here has sold 3-4 sets now so they are getting out a little more.
