Sno-Hog Snowblower Tire - 4.10/3.50 x 6in.
Excellent tire for the money! I needed to replace the tires on my 15 year old Snow Thrower and found these. They are a little narrower than the originals but returned far better traction as a result. They got a lot of use with this year's snows too.

Same tire found on most new model snowblowers
Certainly 100x better than the 35 year old tires that I had! Works great. No chains required unless your on glare ice ... in which case you could just use ice studs from a motorcycle shop. Installation was a test of my patience though. That bead is hit or miss -- it will either seat in one shot, or you'll have to tie a strap around it & fight with it for quite a while. You'll be able to tell just by looking at the tire -- if both beads are touching each other, it's going to be a fight. One tire went on easy, & the other took me over 30 minutes to get seated. The way they are shipped has alot to do with that. The tire has "memory", so if it was underneath something heavy while being shipped 2,000 miles, your going to have issues. It's small size also requires a bit of effort to lever over the rim. Your rim style will have alot to do with that too -- deeper drop-center rims will be easier. This was a '73 Ariens. The 6" rims were too small for my tire machine to hold, so I had to do them the ol' fashioned way.

I bought two Snow Hog snowblower tires for my old snowblower that had tires that would slip going up a grade, or in heavy wet snow. The new Snow Hog tires do not slip at all, my old machine is like new with perfect traction.

Snow Hog Tire
I purchased these for use on the kid's go kart. They needed tires with plenty of traction so they could really tear up my yard. They are heavy walled soft compound tires that have really taken the abuse and come back for more. I haven't noticed any major wear on tires even with repeated tire spinning mud slinging and power slidding. Other go kart web sites have what appears to be the same tire at about twice the price. These tires are an excellent value for the price!
