4.10/3.5 - 6 tire replacement?

so, my tires are old, dry rotted and aren't all that round anymore.
The tire size is confusing to me. I wanted to get some tires that had wider spaced lugs on it for better snow traction.
The tires say 4.10/3.5 - 6
not exactly sure what that means.
This is the type of tread on them now - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/crr-5160351/overview/

When searching for tires, I see a 4.10 - 6 as a size:

would something like that work?

Any suggestions on what to get and where to get them?

Hi Chapel,
The tire that you are asking about is the Carlisle "Snow Hog" From what I hear from guys about it is they like them, but they tend to make the machine bounce and hop a bit. I would say to look in to the "X-Trac" tire from Carlisle. Also a very good gripping tire with no bounce or hop. As far as where to purchase a tire, some one else will have give some input on that. I purchased mine at a "Pete's Tire". Only because Carlisle advised them. I do not think that I got any kind of special deal.

I originally had the same size tires as you, I stepped up to the carlise x-tracs 13x5-6 and they are fantastic! They mount on the same, original rim, no more chains, and the traction is great. Summit has them for $17. You will not be disappointed.

how'd you mount that tire on that rim?

The tire sizes confuse me. I'm used to car tires...

It takes two pry bars, vice grips, dish soap, pushing, squeezing and a lot of "son of a b$%tches" but you eventually can get them on. There is few YouTube videos, search "lawn tractor tire".
The tires are 13 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and fit on a 6 inch rim...13x5-6
You old ones are approx 4 inches wide and fit on a 6 inch rim...4.10-6. They are 12.5-13 inches tall as well.

aha, that makes sense now.
so basically it's a 6" rim, I'm just putting a larger diameter tire on it. thanks! that's helpful.
Do I need to change anything on the front of it? I assume it's going to be angled down a little at the front.

I assume I need inner tubes for this as well, yes?

I didn't even notice a change in mine. The orig tire was 12.5, these are 13 so its negligible.
You also could ask around at local shops about mounting the tires for you. I've seen guys on here talk about it and having them done for $10-20 each.

+1 on the x-tracs. I love them. I also added tubes as my rims aren't in the greatest shape. If you entertain the idea of adding tubes also think about valve steam orientation. Straight out , 90 or 45 depending on the size and location relative to the hub cap and rim depth.

4.10 = height of the side wall
3.5 = width
6 = rim size

as Ray stated above go with the 13x5-6 as they are darn sexy and functional as well

I assume the chains I just bought and installed for the 4.1/3.5-6 won't work on these...
