Ariens snow tires
 
Hello I have an older Ariens with the 3 bolt tire setup. I find myself slipping at the end of the driveway were the plow dumps snow on the drive. like the snow hog http://static1.mfgsupply.com/media/c.../8-12764_2.jpgbut I'm not sure what size I will need or if they even fit, http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p...blower/024.jpg can someone point me in the right direction, I think this blower is a 1973, 110000 or 220000 or h4 or h5.

With the solid rubber tires like that you are going to have a bit more trouble. You are going to have to get new rims. The good news is some of the 922xxx series did have pneumatic tires and are capable of upgrades so you should be able to find rims that fit.

Your other option is to try screwing some studs into those tires or getting some chains for them. Have you seen this thread?

Another option is look for the larger 924xxx series blowers with differential and trade yours or sell it for a bigger one.

I would buy a set of pneumatic tires & rims off eBay, then swap some good tires on there like the ones you pictured. You said your wheel are have the 3 bolt hub right? They are pretty common on eBay. Or you could just wrap some tire chains on the wheels you have to help with the slipping. It like night and day with the chains on the wheels.

wow I never had the idea to try studs, thats great. nice so I change the tire and rim with tire that have air then find snow hogs to fit, any comment on snow-hog ver another snow tire?

I have heard the X-tracks work better than the snow hogs. I have snow hogs on mine and they seem fine.

Be careful with ebay rims as most of the bigger ones are 6" or 8" rims and I think yours is 4" rims. Not sure if they use the same bolt pattern or not. Actually, I think the 8" ones are 4 bolts.

this is harder than I imagined all I see are crazy numbers like this 4.10/3.50-4
but I will keep looking
thanks for the super fast reply's

How much space is there between the tire and the chassis? They do make tire chains for solid rubber tires. My 10ML uses 12x3 solid rubber tires and I found a set for about $30 w/ shipping.

Man them old tires on older snowblowers are just about worthless my dad has the same problem with his old unit. If you can find chains it will make a big difference if not then new wheels and tires. Ck out the Kenda Tire site they have several aggressive snowblower tires is several sizes.
