Depends on what tires you have if they're loaded, if you have wheel weights, how much YOU weigh, how fast you want to plow, how far you have to move the snow and how much/how wet your snow is. I'm blowing snow with a Wheel Horse with weights & chains and not seeing any damage to the blacktop but I don't rush it, slow and easy and I don't spin the tires very much. You're plowing snow that might require a little more aggressive attack. If you have a fairly aggressive tire (lugs or regular M&S tread) and not the wide floatation tires I'd think you'd be okay with wheel weights. You won't know until you try. Friend of our family ran a small country store with gas pumps up in Northern Illinois, for quite a while they did all their Snow removal with a 4HP Wheel Horse with a plow, it had lugged tires, don't think they had weights but might of used chains it's been years since I've seen our home movies with my Dad running the Wheel Horse doing their snow removal so I can't remember. They gave us the tractor when they closed the store there weren't any weights or chains with it, just the deck and blade but then again they hadn't used it for snow removal for about 10 years before they closed the store so the chains or weights might of been lost.
