    I am getting ready for winter and would like to ask you experienced guys if any of you change your tires on your skidsteer for winter. Last winter I used chains on my skidsteer (Cat 262) and worked great but they leave stratchs on the pavement even as careful as I am. I was considering puting on snow wolf snow tires or buying some sort of rim in which I can mount some thin E rated snow tires. Any of you guys go any of these routes and if so results or do you all just stick to chains?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Run stock tires on my 863 with no problems, they are foam filled...

    On flat areas mine is fine also, but on hills no way stock hold well for me. When I pre salt it helps little.

    we use snow wolf tires on all out skidsteers and would use nothing else.
