Brad, sounds like a smart move putting your cab on the 446 and using it for plow duty. The newer style fenders will keep the slush off the back of your pant legs. I would load the tires for sure, and if you have wheel weights or a weight box use them too. Is there an inside joke about putting the tires back on? Charles lost me with that one. :headscratcher: I always lower the jack slightly, lean the tire into the axle flange, then raise it until the top lug hole lines up. I put the top lug bolt in semi-tight and raise the tractor more so the wheel goes vertical, then wiggle it enough to put a bolt in the bottom side, then the rest of the bolts. Even with my loaded 9.5-16s it isn't that much of a chore. Glad to see your recently restored beauty will be spared from plow duty by your new workhorse.
