    Winter TW

    The tractor tire looks wild and this would probably work pretty well if they used a snowmobile ski with runners instead of a snowboard lol. They sure made me laugh at the end.

    Having rode alot in the winter ithis video highligjts how you really need packed snow to ride. The skis is neat but offers no advantage over a fat tire in front as its always the rear tire that sinks anyway. Fun to watch nonetheless

    More width, less lugs, less throttle, more contact area i.e.,less contact pressure & lower gearing might all help. Sometimes I slow down, accelerate gently & ask less of the tenuous bond between tire and snow to limit digging in.

    Looks a little like a 3" lug 14.9x24 rice paddy tire. Think it might get a bit heavy if caked with Mississippi gumbo mud?Attachment 188846
