I put direct steer on my craftsman lawn tractor but I still use it for off roading and I was wondering what would be the best tires for it Im thinking snow blower tires because they are skinny (i don't care about tread pattern or anything) any help would be great.

With an unlocked rear, turning wont be too difficult. When its locked, the axle wants to keep going straight so it fights the front tires in a turn.

Any snowblower tire should work. Mile tread, cut turfs, etc.
