I have a 922018(tractor)/922024 (attachment) SnoThro with hard rubber tires that finally need replaced after 30+ years. Ariens says the stock replacement wheel assembly is part #52202400, but I would like to see if upgrading to an air-filled tire is possible. According to Jacks Small Engine repair, part #07124100, a SnoHog type tire assembly will fit my machine, yet Ariens claims it will not, but Ariens also says their stock replacement is the ONLY one that will fit which I find hard to believe.
So I'm a bit confused and seeing if anyone else has solved this problem.
Thanks!

looking at pictures of your machine online, it looks like you have three bolt rims and hubs. if so then you can swap them with tire from a 10000 series which i have used sets of, 40 bucks for regular turf tire or 60 for ones upgraded with toro tires and tubes just like the ones seen in this ebay ad
Toro 824 snowblower powershift 38540 67-9221 tire 231-120 - rim is damaged | eBay

but swapped over to ariens rims. guaranteed to hold air pm me if interested

22000 series wheels/tires are smaller than 10000 series.

Should be able to do it. I did it on a 922003 last year.

Hey, Mike, that looks pretty snazzy. Any issues with clearances changing after the added height from larger tires? Also a bit concerned with larger tires creating too much stress on the drive parts because of the extra torque needed to turn them, or maybe that's just the Jeeper in me worrying too much ?
I've also got chains for the stock wheels, going bigger would prevent me from using them I suppose, though with better tires I probably wouldn't need them. Also are those the 07124100 tires or the ones user 43128 had for sale?

Here's a pic of what I've got now. 3 holes, 3" spacing on center between them. Center hole is 2.5" diameter

I'd get 10000 series rims and buy Xtrac tires for it.
I installed 10000 series tires and rims on a 922 snowblower that had metal/plastic tires on it (it looked better after IMO as with the plastic tires the tractor part seemed to be sitting too low). It is a close fit and you will not be able to fit chains on them, therefore I suggest buying Xtrac tires as you won't need chains with those tires.

I put pneumatic Sno Hog tires on both my Ariens, my 10M4 and my 10M6, as well as my YardMan 7100: Best thing I ever did. I used split rim's for ease of tire install. I also had to cut in a key-way in the Yardman shaft with a die grinder, np, worked great.

So looks like the general consensus is 10,000 series rims and then pneumatic tires on those is best, and then tread type comes down to personal preference. Awesome, I have learned a lot. Thanks, everybody! 👍

Thread type is indeed a personal choice, but the XTRAC work the best in snow (it is the standard tire installed on most new snowblowers including Ariens and Honda).

The rims I found to buy have tires on them already so I will try those first and if they don't work out I'll try the XTracs for sure. You are definitely right about the stock wheels looking way too small, even with the chains on it rides too low, so I'm pretty excited to put a "lift on it". I have read also that I should probably readjust the skids or get the non-marking ones since the new bigger tires will sort of push the front of the skids down into the ground if that makes sense.
