    I just bought some wolf paw snow tires through Wagner Equipment Rental. I love them, they are 7 inch wide snow designed tire. I have used them against my old case 465 snow tire and I pushed him blade to blade on asphalt all over.
    The Tire came in a set of 4 tire and rims for $1389.00 + shipping.
    You can also get the tire studded.

    Put tires similar to these on our S-150's at work last winter. About $2000 for a set at the dealer. They work good in the snow and mud. Just my $.02
