I know this is late info.

Walco supplies most tractor dealers with tire chains.

http://www.walcoequipment.com/produc...lco-tire_chain

Critical info is tire diameter. Not all tires are made to the Tire and Rim Association standards but the tire chain people follow those dimensions.

This page from the TRA handbook is likely for tires much bigger than yours but will give you an idea.

You cannot assume that buying chains based upon the tire size on your tire sidewall will get you chains that fit!

After shopping around and trying to find something used I finally went with the Twinway 6 studded chain from Walco. I had to order through Kubota as they don't deal with the general public. Not cheap at $720 before tax but it's the chain I need to get up a steep gravel incline in the winter and through the woods in the spring.

I also switched the rear tires around and dished out the rims to give me a wider stance, I found it does make a difference and gives a more planted feel.

I am just wondering, it looks like the tires are aired up. Would it help to soften up the tires?

The tires are loaded, I took possession of the tractor from the dealer last spring and haven't checked or changed the air pressure. I'm assuming the tire pressure is where it should be but I'll check it.

Don't forget to rotate the tire valve to 12 o'clock, so you don't have the valve stem spitting at you.
