    could you share the specs of those. I am interested in a similar setup. Some have said ford rims, but I have measured a few and they wont fit my s300 bobcat.

    Thanks for the info. Do the tires seem to slide off rim when turning? Tires look a little balloned.

    I will also look around and see how much they are let you know. Looks like these are the same tires snow wolf paws use.

    Thanks Again

    the tires "feel" pretty good plowing, but sometimes i'll run a snow bucket to move piles the day after an event and they feel a little squashy
