Steel tracks or hydraulic cooling preferred?

11R22.5s are plentiful and still sort of easy to move. They’re pretty thin but have a decent number of ply and don’t break down real fast. Smaller tires are easy to move but break down fast and don’t quite have enough squish to keep the tracks iff the ground. Skidder, tractor & loader tires are great but it pretty much takes a machine to move them.

I’m currently using old conveyor belts from a screen deck for moving equipment with single bar grouser pads on pavement. They’re a little harder to move but you move them less. I guess it’s a toss up unless you just can’t drag the conveyor belt, then the tires would work better.
