Snow thrower tires are a unique combination of two very popular products that most people have never heard of before. They are the all terrain vehicle tires and snow thrower. They also are known by other names such as a plow tire, an alley tire, and a snow tire. Let’s take a closer look at both of these important snow thrower parts.
First of all, you need to know that snow thrower tires are not your normal street tire. These types of tires are built for off road usage. That means they will not be on a standard street tire. Most snow throwers are at least one quarter to one half a mile long with a maximum tread depth of up to nine inches. These specialized tires are also much stronger than regular street tires so they can withstand much abuse before wearing down.
Snow throwers are designed specifically to handle snow and ice, which is why they are much larger than standard street vehicles. In addition to this, these larger tires give snow throwers a better profile. When a snow thrower tire is fitted to a vehicle, it generally requires welding to attach to the wheel. This welded method of mounting is referred to as ‘tying in.’
One of the most important features of snow thrower tires is that they are designed for better traction on slushy roads and in deep snow. They do not have an inbuilt all weather tire on them. The inboard design of the all weather tires allows them to better grip the road when a driver is driving over ice and snow. However, these tires also have small grooves on the inside of the tread which allows them better hold onto tight places like curbs.
These all weather tires have deep grooves in both the tread and the lip. This enables the tires to have better traction on the road in all types of weather conditions. Most snow thrower tires come equipped with anti-freeze fluid. This helps the wheels lock into position in the winter and make it easier for drivers to control their vehicles. If you choose to buy used snow thrower tires, check them out thoroughly and make sure that the anti-freeze has been added.
When shopping for snow thrower tires, make sure that you choose tires that fit your vehicle well. There are many different sizes and types of tires that are available. Snow thrower tires typically range between a fourth and a half inches in diameter. Make sure that you purchase a tire that fits your vehicle snugly so that it does not cause any traction problems.
Prices for snow thrower tires can be quite high. Most tire stores will carry a wide selection of these tires at very reasonable prices. If you are looking for a deal, you should keep your eyes peeled for seasonal sales. Many retailers will offer special deals during the winter months when they need to move their stock away from their regular shelves to meet increasing customer demand.
One thing that many people do not realize is that snow thrower tires actually wear down quite a bit. This is why it is important to wash your tires each time you take them off of the wheel. This will ensure that the tread remains intact as well as the inside of the tire. After each time you take the tires off of the wheel, you should check the tire for any cracks or chips that may need to be filled in order to ensure that they last as long as possible.
