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

Seems like they would slip in the snow. Maybe a nice idea for lawn equipment.

But no name, address or link to buy these?

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.

I've seen those on the econo models being sold at Canadian Tire.
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.

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.

First year running them on my Troybilt so I can’t comment yet. The reviews were good which made me go with them.

These have been around for about 10-15 years. Called Tweels. Michelin has been making them for heavy equipment. Audi showed them some cars. They never go flat, and supposedly ride as well as regular tires.
