    Last year was a pain in the a** with tire chains for the loader.

    Between them get loose, to getting them on, to fixing them...These studs look awesome!

    I have a new tractor this year, and Im considering order some studs for the front tires to help get traction when turning. Anyone else run these or have opinions. Would you run them in all 4 or just the front or back??

    A local rep quoted me $1.02-$1.08 depending on the size and $11 for the tool to install. A video online shows how to install.

    I tried those last year on a skidsteer. They were a bit of a help but wore down pretty quick. Then they started puncturing the tube in the tire.

    Was the tire warn out? What size did you use? Waste of money?

    I have used a similar product.... i was not overly impressed. They did not equal my v-bar chains... they were good for everyday use but when you needed chains... you still needed chains it you put them on a skid loader.. foam fill the tires. they will push through when you really dont need it to.
