Tires For Plowing With A 2018 Foreman

Just getting into plowing with the Foreman this winter. My Yamaha snow blower is on it’s last legs, so bought a Warn Provantage 60” plow setup for the Foreman. These newer locker 4X4 Honda’s get good traction. What I’m wondering is, what should I do for tires? I’ve been considering getting some 27” Zillas. My other option is to put the almost new Foreman tires on the 08 Rancher. Take the 12” wheels and 25” tires from the Rancher and just put chains on them for plowing. The Rancher tires are getting old so tearing them up with chains would be no big deal. Eventually though, I’ll need some new tires on the workhorse Foreman. What are the best tires out there for plowing?

Thanks for that mrbb, it’s hard to get a feel for what the Foreman will be able to push. I’m blowing snow away from structures into two separate driveways (gravel). Plowing the driveways down to where a front loader takes over...none of this will be smooth! I’ll be pushing snow at a fairly slow speed. Sounds like the old Rancher tires with chains might be the way to go for extreme conditions, they still have plenty of tread, they are just getting long on years.
Yeah that is good to know, I’ve been driving these things since 3 wheeler days. The newer ones are impressive in the snow and cold. They have come a long ways...
I bought the 26” Rip Saws 9’s on the front and 11’s on the rear.

Hope these Rip Saws will fit in the Honda Wheels! 9” on the front and 11” on the rear...I’ll find out tomorrow after dropping them off at the Honda dealer.
Yea they did fit on the aluminum Honda wheels.
The Foreman with a new 60” Warn plow and Rip Saws all the way around.

Those tires are impressive! They really go through the soft stuff. I’ll let you know later on the hard pack. They have 7lbs now would reduce air for a harder surface.
