Dual purpose FSB. It'll never see anything real deep where floatation is key, but it will see a decent depth.

Too be honest I've never snow wheeled with anybody who's ran them, just thought that particular sizing would work well on his FSB

37" radial rocker in 17" flavor. Should be a good balance of capacity and capability. The pattern and radial do well in the snow. I've heard of 25k plus for longevity. The irok fans around here get 15k max
