Well go out and get a pair of diamond tread tires and go find some mud. You will know why they quit selling many of them in about two turns of the tires. Make sure and have another tractor handy as you will be stuck with a round smooth roller for a tire. Plus they would slide even on wet grass.

My Uncle had a set on his hay making tractor. He talked them up as for how they would not mark up his hay field. That lasted until a loaded hay rack shoved him down an hill and through a fence. He took them off after that and they sold at his sale for $10.

Might be good for tractor rides but that would be about it.

Load them and put a really good set of chains on them and they'll go through a lot of snow.

Friend of mine has the diamond pattern turf tires on one of his tractors - great for not leaving tracks in a lawn, but other than that pretty much useless.

As JD says - add a little water and they clog right up with mud and spin like they're on ice.
