    Alright this is a different type of skid steer tire question. I currently have a Case skid steer running 12x16.5 tires on it using a snow bucket or a 8 foot plow and generally we have no issues with loss of traction while plowing, but I am currently in the market for a new Case skid steer and depending on which unit I go with some are equipped with the 10 x 16.5 tires on them. Has anyone had any experience with these smaller tires??? Do they seem to work better than the wider counterpart? I am not interested in purchasing a dedicated snow tire as we use the machines for other things between snow storms. Just wondering if anyone had real life experience with this!
