    You guessed it. I do Horseshoe and a bunch of Commerical properties in that area and Manawa. If you need anything my number is on the sander truck in the south Horseshoe lot. Hope everything went well for ya last night.

    I've never used snow paws but have only heard good things about them on here. I went with solideal lifemaster tires when I needed some new tires and am extremely happy with them. It was a much cheaper way to go and I can use them all season.

    Just got a set of them here. Haven't used them for snow yet but I'm hoping for the best.

    I know their prices have been posted before but what do they run again? Never used them but sure seems like they would work well.

    Do you need wheel spacers?

    I have a freind that has them on a s250. He didnt need spacers. I dont think any of them do. They are narrow and tall. He hasnt run them enough to tell how much better they are.

    We run a set, have had good results from them. I think we paid 1500.00+ for the set w/ rims. Ours are the Snow Wolf with a different tread pattern than the ones above. They do not need wheel spacers and they make your machine look smaller. Bought them from a snow wolf dealer near Chicago.

    That is the "smaller" size they offer. If you put them on a large frame machine then I could see how they make it look smaller.....they will also wear faster than the "larger" size in that scenario.

    I have ran a few sets of the "smaller" wolf paws on S185 Bobcats and they worked awesome. This yr my rental machine(246 CAT) has a set of the "larger" wolf paws.

    Ours are the same height as our stock tires, just much skinnier. We run a 246B Cat.

    This year we purchased our tires pre-season and were able to sell them for $1,400.00 (100's) and $1650.00 (400's). I would figure paying 100-200 dollars more per set because I would not carry inventory like that again (too risky).

    We didn't need spacers for ours and the tires and rims came to slightly over $2k.
