Currently running turf tires 33x12.5 - 15 on B2410. The driveway is steep. Past couple years the tractor won't go up driveway pushing rear snow blower. Could the tires just be too old? Tire recommendations?

Not tires, but chains. It's more likely that your road is just slicker this year due to snow/temperature differences.

Turf tires really aren't very good in snow whether new or old. Get a set of decent chains. If they're not hardened they'll wear out pretty quickly.

If you are concerned about scratching the driveway, get rubber tire chains. The only negative with them is that they do not help side to side, so if you have considerable tilt in the surface, they are not for you. I have one spot where I did a 180, now I approach that with more care.

Steel chains shouldn’t affect a snow covered driveway.

Since the idea of plowing or snow blowing is to remove the snow, the steel chains will contact the surface. If the tire spins, the steel chains can really make marks that many would not want.

I’ve never removed snow down to the bare road surface. I guess some people do.
