Second attempt. Am I the only one who accidently hits a wrong key and loses the whole typed out post? Anyway, yes, I have a pair of Goodyear 12.4x28's that are 4 inches taller than a decent 11.2x28, and much wider. Seems alot has to do with brand and ply rating. When you think about IH JD and others who used 36 or 38" rears for decades, because of traction and plowing power... I won't argue with their engineers about that theory. I don't 'like' those brands, but ya got to respect their power.
As for fronts, as John told you, 4x19's are like free power steering, but yea, rather light for some jobs, like a plow hitting a stump or big root? I have a set of cast weights on 6x16's, very different, but not any harder to steer than 16's without the weights. I want to try solid rubber in a pair of 19's one of these days. I would think along the lines of John UK again, we, without factory dimensions and operator's manuals...we are setting ourselves up to do something-s wrong. Adjusting hitch? worn shares? Coulters??? Wrong tire sizes and positions? Funny how we have such a miserable time nowdays, yet fresh from the dealer 60 years ago, people had fewer hangups.
I have a respectible collection of wheels and tires, about everything that was for sale on Craigslist the last couple years. If you want to experiment with a pair of 24's, contact 2 tractors, he isn't that far from you... and he is allergic to extra tires...
