Airless Tires

Appologies if this has been posted before, but ive never seen these before! Hard plastic, very ridged, at a glance they dont seem like they would have much traction

As a general rule solid tires provide less traction than cushioned tires. On the tread, these tires seem more difficult to maneuver than conventional treaded snow blower tire designs.

Yep. Thats where i took the pic. I think it was branded “YardMachine”. ( MTD no doubt)
Edit: it is a YardWorks blower. $1099.99 CAD.

I don't know, the wheels on that Troy Bilt look pretty good to me. Aggressive treads, big 16 or 18 inch wheels, never have to worry about losing air.

Not a fan of these but they are FAR from the solid tires of the 80's like Toro had, These are not really a solid tire as the round section will flex as a air tire would but I personally do not like the tread design but most likely is that way so the tires will flex, If the had angles treads it would make it more of a solid tire. They have made these for auto use also and these seem to be copying that technology.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

First year running them on my Troybilt so I canít comment yet. The reviews were good which made me go with them.
