    My local dealer quoted me 2,550 for the wolf paws for my A300 skid steer. The normal rim with wolf paws were 1,550 which I can handle, but another grand for a bigger hole in the rim. That's just crazy:cry:. For guys that have the A300, what are you using for snow tires/rims? I may try and get some retreaded tires with rims that kinda match a snow tire, what do you guys think? Or should I bite the bullet and get the wolf paws.

    Why not swap tires on the rim? You could do that a lot of times for a grand.

    That does seem crazy steep. I've always wanted to try out the Wolf Paws but thought they were too much. The Bobcat dealer here and guys over in the Twin Cities they are using bigger truck tires and were around $1,000. Don't know if they would work on your machine?

    do you guys think severe duty tires will be better than the regular tires I have now?
