they were off my 1980 cr250, they shot for jumpin on a mx bike, i got new ones forthe bike, and these jsut laying around, so i threw em on to keep the skis goin over bumps liek a sled. o it also took me 10 hours from start to finish to make these skis fit on there.

Lol, bent a ski. I was going to say, a good way to get traction is to let some air out fo the tires, cut some old snowmobile tracks around the tires, tie them with a wire then inflate the tires again to hold the tracks in place. You would be surprised with the amount of tarction you get.
