Those things sure can dig!

Easy on the throttle with those badboys!


Wonder how they would do under water? Air filled?

I like the creativity! Looks like it would be easy and fast to do.

I snapped a couple pics of my snow-tires. The chains aren't too bad to make once you get all the lengths written down and a system figured out. Not sure how well they work yet.

These suckers, stock WK tires with 130 studs in total. After doing a set of these a person may feel the need to commit suicide. Resist the urge!

I had them on my WK and they TEAR up the snow. I remember driving through some snow where it sunk right to the bottom and you couldn't even see the tires. They were under the crust diggin away and plowin snow:luxhello:

I also rigged them on the back of my stock slash and it pulled small wheelies on sheer ice lol. Then burned up that poor motor.

I like what you're thinking. You need a Blizzard that has the tracks on it, or a snowmobile. Forgive the pun, but you may just be re-inventing the wheel.

You get an 'A' for originality. B for function.
