    Just put on a set of 2006 Toyota Tundra rims and Goodyear winter tires. 260/70R17 6 bolt Toyota truck tires are perfect fit. Picked mine up used with only one season on the rims and tires.
    The traction on snow and ice is greatly improved and the 30" diameter does not cause any issues with the snow blower or the box blade. The increased height may be an issue for a bucket, as I have not tested that yet.

    I have had three series toolcats 2003, 2005 and now 2009 D model. I run turf tires all year round and put chains on mine, Never had a problem including going into ditches that were drifted even with road, By lifting the sb200 snowthrower up You had plenty of weight on the front. I added a 3 pt hitch * aftermarket* and now have snowblower up front and box blade rear. You could go thru the throulbe of getting snow tires but Standard bar tires work fine. IF you go the truck tire route get a heavy enough ply . regards

    I had an extra set of gnarly tires off my 2000 Tundra and I had excellent results with them over the past 6-9 months. I recently replaced them with chained LT235-75x15 tires that I use during the winter. That particular 6-hole bolt pattern is extremely common. The tires off my Tundra (Cooper Mud-Terrain, IIRC) worked much better than the stock R-whatever's that came with the machine (D-series).

    That is really nice. Where did you get the tracks?

    New sneakers, replaced my oem 29" that I run chains on front during ice winter like we have now. Bought 16" rims from a local rv dealer for $287- with tax but you can get them online for $225-
    Amazon.com: JG 16x6 6/5.5 Silver Mod Trailer Wheel: Automotive
    The tires are Hankook 225716 studded RW11 cost $790-
    Tires are same size as oem so I can run my chains if needed.
    With initial rim install hand screw lugs tight while lifting tire with bar to align on hub. Rims are thinner and center hole is larger than oem rim.
    I am impressed with traction on ice and surprised at how much better machine rides even with 70 psi in tires.

    Very interesting. Is the tire size 225-70-16 or 225-75-16?

    Nice!...but you can get the same thing in the steel version and save some coin. That's what I did and they work great. I will confess they don't look near as nice as the AL wheels, but there's practically no upkeep other than washing them off every year...or so...

    I got the rims but I am having trouble getting studded tires - how much do you think the studded add versus M&S winter tires?
