    My local dealer quoted me 2,550 for the wolf paws for my A300 skid steer. The normal rim with wolf paws were 1,550 which I can handle, but another grand for a bigger hole in the rim. That's just crazy. For guys that have the A300, what are you using for snow tires? I may try and get some retreaded tires with rims that kinda match a snow tire, what do you guys think? Or should I bite the bullet and get the wolf paws?

    i'm not asking to be smart ...are you having issues with traction? i have 5 skids and almost never struggle to push a 9 and 10 foot box but maybe NJ storms are different

    What kind of tires are you using? Do you ever have to push uphill?

    It get icy at one of my condo sites in NJ. The site sits on a side of a mountain, higher elevation. My mud tires loose traction a lot and I loose a lot of time because of it.

    can you stud some of your tires with self tapping screws?
    i dont think any rubber tire will get traction on ice.
    do you pre salt if you know snow is coming?
