3D printed wheels maybe?

I'll be honest, out of the hundred or thousands of wheels available in the full size world and the RC world I hate 97-98% of them. The Snowplow isn't going to see high speed or any jumping so I think a 3D printed wheel should hold up. So I opened up FreeCAD and spent a few hours working on a wheel design and ended up with a two piece design. This makes it easier to print and requires so much less material for support and that means less time to clean them up. Just a basic 10 hole Alcoa style super single

Glued the two halves together and will use Tamiya modeling putty to smooth them out. Printed with 4 shells, 20% infill and in what Cura calls Dynamic quality. They are 1.7s that are 35mm wide with a 13mm offset. The hex walls are 2.5mm thick.

I have them up loaded to my Thingverse page if anyone wants to try them out.

Very cool, have you thought about adding an internal beadlock ring to go between the halves?
