This also shows you AG tires are no better than other tires on ice. They all harden up and are worthless. So is weight. You have to have a traction method, chains, studs or some way to grab onto the ground.
    Do you have the R4,s industrial tires or R1,s ag tires?The reason I ask I had R1,s ags installed my new tractor.My old 2008 Kioti had R4,s industrial and I hated them in snow and mud.The big reason why I had R1,s this time around.

    R4's coobie. My new chains are like day and night. on the icy stuff.. I would agree R1's are bound to do better in snow than R4's , but I don't think there is any comparison of R1 or R4 to chains on ice.
