Looking to plow snow and want to know from the tire experts what tire is best to plow snow with. Here is the kicker. I also want a nice smooth ride for summer months. I will be trying to avoid mud when possible. Summer conditions are dirt to gravel to occasional mud to tar road. No sand or rock crawling.

** EDIT ** I am liking the Tusk Terrabite but I am a little worried how they will perform in snow.

Your not going to find a tire that is great in all conditions. Snow and Ice are not like anything else a good winter tire will not last in the summer because to be great in snow and ice they have to be soft and will wear fast in the summer!

I thought the tires that came on my 2016 blue were good year around. I plowed snow a 300' drive most of last year and rode the sand trails all Summer. I live in northern Michigan. Maybe they were not the perfect tire but after spending $25,000 I wanted to get some use out of my tires.

I had Big Horns on our last machine which was used for snowplowing and thought that they worked very well. When it comes time to change tires on the General I will probably put the Big Horns (not 2.0) on it. I really like this tire.

I bought a set of 29" big horns about 6 weeks ago for my General but I am yet to have them put on:smile2:

plowing snow will chew up your tires especially if you are plowing on concrete. Just stick with the oem tires until they wear out which will be fast. I use my yamaha grizzly to plow, i have dirt devils and they are about toast after a few years of mostly plowing.
