    We took advantage of the discount the boys were offering as well as free shipping ordered a new set of tires from True North Attachments in Fargo. Just have to stud them up now and install.

    From that picture the size looks to be quite different, the news are are 2 inches less in circumference. The width though is what's best. These new ones are 6" narrower. Now we will put 2 rows of studs on each tire before install.

    Studs ? they dont tear up the ground when plowing? Thought these were enough for traction.

    If you really want to do it fast you don't even need a jack. Put 2 jack stands at the rear of machine, curl the bucket all the way forward and push down lol

    You know I'm sure the tires themselves will be awesome. They are a soft compound so I'm sure they'll bite. Even the other guys shoe tires that have an animal name to them are often studded. No they won't mark up the asphalt.

    They a re 2" inches less in circumference or 1" less in diameter.

    Can I ask how much and did they come with the wheels or did you already have them?

    What size are the stock tires? 12-16.5 or the larger 14-17.5?

    I expected the snow tires to be taller than stock

    Nice! The snow tires are 34" tall. And yes they come with the heavy duty 3/8" thick solid wheel. If you need a set just let me know.

    These are for better ground speed and traction in the snow correct? Pardon my ignorance. I have a Bobcat 2 speed S650 with stock tires/rims now.

    Have to keep this in mind for next season. Didn't know where to get rims for my cat 262c. Just put new tires on it yesterday.
