Good luck getting anything. Still waiting for some Alliance for my 244 as I couldn't even get an estimate when Nokians might be available. All I know is my set is in the country not on the ship anymore. Supposedly the end of January. I started looking in September.

BKT make Loader tires in that size .

Not sure about a Snow tread .

I have BKT tires on my small Loader called ' 621 '

They work good in Snow and Dirt .

I bought them a few years ago through a local mobile tire guy , not sure where he got the tires from in Ontario .

Buff, funny that you mention that I have a cat 908M as well my local tire dealership I deal with in New Hampshire where I live, like Mark, I was looking at Alliance back in October and he said maybe by March 2023

So what I did, on my caterpillar I have the Dunlop original tires. This machine is only used for snow, I have a Metal Pless 8–36–14 with livedge, we average 55 to about 65 inches per season for snowfall, this year we’re sitting at 7 inches total.

I talked to the tire company and they said you can try grooving into the tread block or sniping. I then looked up Tire grooving machines. Some of them are very expensive. The one I was after I believe brand new is $550-$600 … I then

went on eBay I won the bid for a used one which was practically brand new for $300, I bought some spare blades For $24

I’m doing this from my mobile phone I will upload before and after, I was gonna use it today but we only got an inch and a half of freaking snow.

I didn’t copy anyone’s tread design I did this on my own, will it work? Who knows Plus it gave me something to do in the shop the last few days lol
