    I'm thinking about getting some plow wings for my western. :wesport

    How are they if you have to back drag / blade in front of a garage? :redbounce

    The wings for my poly-v are installed at a 15degree angle forward from the main blade. This would prevent you from getting as close as you might want. They also have a rubber cutting edge that bends backwards when backblading. So, they will not be much good for backblading, but shouldn't hinder the process.

    or you could just pop the pins and take em off when doing driveways

    This is true, and easy enough, other than having to get out in the cold. (One advantage of the Blizzard wings)

    i put some epdm plactic on the bottoms instead of the crappy rubber and they back drag great, but im usually using my back drag edge to do that anyways so they are usually off the ground about 4''.

    Actually, mine (rubber pads) squeegee the pavement clean when back dragging. Even with hardpack, I often find myself saying - as I look at the two clean lines on each side of the backdrag, and saying "I wish the whole BLADE EDGE cleaned like that.
