Source for tri-rib fronts

Recommended Posts

I am gearing up the 716H for winter duty and want to put tri-ribs on the front for increased steering ability in snow. Has anyone bought 16x6.50-8 tri-ribs lately and gotten a good price? Thanks.

You can also try GTC wholesale. I think they are in Cleveland. Don't expect cheap pricing as it is a very low volume item. You are given a price, sort of take it, or leave it.

Sam, is is any big difference on a sovereign with a snowblower? It rides on asphalt:D
Packed snow it stands a chance, glazed asphalt, imagine trying to turn in a ice rink with no cutting edge on your ice skates. My humble opinion. Keep in mind, most of the contact is centered around the middle rib which is fine on turf, not so fine on ice.;)

Erik gets along fine with his, but he's on a flat surface, you have that slope at the end of your driveway. Just imagine sliding across Greenfield ave straight with your wheels cramped.:D:D:D
