I did a search and didnt find anything too recent. I have a 2016 Sportsman 570 and the stock tires dont handle my steep driveway too well when plowing snow. Who makes the best snow tires? I have read the Kenda Bearclaw K299 and Kenda K592 Bear Claw EVO are good - but wanted some real user input. Anything else better out there?

Thanks
Jeff

You are behind the plow,so there is no snow.
Weight and Speed are your Friends.
I use Maxxis Zilla and have no Problem on 15% and ice.

Ice screws in the tires, or tire chains, or ---

Cariboo is right, I have Kenda BearClaws on my plow machine and have no problems. My last plow machine had ITP Mudlite tires and had no problem. I add a 70lb sand bag to the rear rack to give me more weight along with my 200+ pounds. My driveway is gravel so I haven't had any issues unless the snow is drifted hard or really wet. Then the front end just moves over if the blade is angled. If you are on blacktop or concrete, you might need to add weight or just push everything down hill. If you want new tires, IMO the Bear Claw HTR is a good all purpose tire.
