 Tire Differences

I am thinking of purchasing a used B7100 that currently has Turf tires. In my reading here, I don't think the turf tread will work well in the woods or slushy stuff, so I want to consider purchasing/trading to a different tread type. Can anyone comment on the tire tread that is between the turf and R4 tread? It has lots of thin bars in the tread that reminds me of an ATV. It looks like it would be light on the yard (when needed) but would still pull that log out of the creek too. R4 treads look beefy, but they look shallow too, so there may not be much bite.
Can you correct me, or share your experiences.
Many Thanks,

I think you are describing the "bar turf" tires found on Kubota BX and other small tractors. I have not seen this type of tire in the sizes found on a B7100.

A viable option might be to find a mud and snow radial made for a pick-up or SUV. I really like the radial tires I have on my JD 4100.

Have you considered a set of chains for all four when you are hitting the fun areas? I have a set of turfs on my B5200 year round, including moving some pretty heavy snow falls, until the snow gets to be about eighteen inches deep, I don't have any problems. After that, I put on the chains. I made a set of chains some years ago when I logged with the unit, driving through slimy snow and ice pulling trees through swamp with the mucky swill coming through the floor boards...damn was it fun ! Never once did I get stuck. Have'nt needed the chains again until this winter, as we got buried every week.
Chains are a lot cheaper than tires, ( and potentially wheels ), too.
