I have posted before, trying to reduce the divots caused by my Snapper 48" hydro, with a 23 hp engine. I'm noticing that some manufacturers, such as Scag, offer taller & wider tires & wheels that I believe would fit on the Snapper. I am wondering if switching to a wider tire would improve traction, thus reducing divots? Or would it make the situation worse? I think I may need to switch to a wider tire as I believe the 23 hp engine is a bit too heavy for the standard 16 x 6.5 inch tires. I am considering the Scag 18 x 8.5 wheel & tire. Any help would be appreciated, I'd like to get that Snapper in good shape before Spring, or it has to be sold.
