 Best tire for 2210 during winter months

I currently have turf tires on my tractor since it is used primarily for mowing. I plan on moving snow with my blade this winter.

I know the 4wd is going to play a big factor in traction, but I wonder if my tires will spin or should I order chains today, change tire configuration? Anyone with experience with just about every type of winter element, dry and wet snow, icy hills.

Suggestions?

 Best tire for 2210 during winter months

The tire tread thing has been hashed and hashed with everyone having their reasons for a different tread design. Chains are by far the best traction aid yet invented, but they ride rough, can tear up fenders, scratch up blacktop drives, etc.,so plenty of pluses and plenty of negatives for chains. If winter traction were your only concern without chains then probably R-1 tires with plenty of wheel weights would provide the greatest pressure per sq. in. on the surface of the tread bar theoreticly giving you the best traction on ice, packed snow, etc.. but then there is the issue of R-1's tearing up turf in the summer, so I guess I don't have a solid answer for you, I've just raised more issues. Personally I don't push much snow with a compact so I still like my R-4"s for 99% of all other work. Now I've probably really stirred up an issue. Frank.

If you plan on using chains I think you have the best tire for that application (turfs) get your self 2 link spaced chains (v-bar type)...it depends on how steep things are for you. With good ballast you will find the 4wd and no chains work excellent by themselves. Its the incline thing and ice which can cause you to slide or spin...
Little tricks with chains regarding clearance with the wheel wells, is to air down then mount the chains. If you have to remove a link do it then. When you air up the chain gets tight, real tight and wont move at all...

I've been wondering the same thing myself. My use is with a snowthrower though, but I have some slope to my driveway. Just had the tires loaded with molasses? That's what the dealer is recommending now. Said he got about 150 lbs in each. It will be interesting to trade notes during/after this winter.

Cheers

Twenty plus years in Alaska taught me that chains are designed to pack down and compress the snow beneath the tire and then dig into the compressed snow to create traction.

If you are going to push snow, then you are running the tires on a cleared surface which defeats the purpose, and as Frank points out, makes chain gouges and scars on what ever you are driving over.

Given the tire choices on the 2210, I would go with the turfs.

I ran my R-1's last winter with chains on my 2210. I kept a speader full of traction aggregate on the 3ph and the 47" blower on the front. I have some 10% grades to plow but found that I didn't need the chains. I'll run without them this winter.

Check the Hot Subjects box to the right. There's a thread called "Turf or R4 tires for snow".

 Best tire for 2210 during winter months

Thank you everyone. I am going to try to run without chains at least the first couple of storms. I have a purchased couple of weights to counter the blade. I have a Toro snow-blower and a wench on the tractor if all else fails.

I hope you mean you have a winch -- a bawdy wench could get very cold on the hood of a tractor in winter - especially if she is wearing the traditional low cut blouse of wenches !!!!
