    So who uses what and what works best? We have dirt tires on it at the moment and the boss wants to try turf tires this winter and I think they will be not the best but I'm just guessing. Anyone used turf tires for snow? What else does everyone else use and experiences (links or specific name will help) has anyone put LT tires on and what size and how much sidewall flex was there?

    My buddy put some trailer tires on his. He said they are alright they can handle most loads and the tread wear is not great. I am not sure of the size or brand tire.

    Turf tires are the worst for snow, the treads fill up and you might as well be running slicks.

    I ran Cooper M&S on mine, before I sold it. I was going to throw them in with the sale, but forgot.

    If you're interested, let me know. I'll make you a deal. I can get pictures of them too, we only ran them in the winter, so there is quite a bit of tread left.

    I run standard all terrain truck tires on mine. Work great.
