    They are not good in the snow until you put chains on them. They pack full of snow bad and would probably do the same in mud. A lot of lawn mowers have that same pattern. I heard somewhere that it was the best tire to have a pulling mower in a stock tire class.

    Not much better than racing slicks for traction in grass and mud.

    I have turfs on my Massey. They will load up with mud(if you are in the mud). I use them in my woods(but I'm very careful where I go). I have an FEL, and 4wd..............and I've had very few problems for home use on my 2 acres.

    The thing I like best is that putting on tire chains for snow removal is a breeze. But then again............All the above is why I specifically got my tractor with turfs...........I know what works best for my property.
