Have been looking at the same question for our 3400. I posted a question about this a month ago:

There were several replies, including a good pic from Ultradog of some fat alberts that were on one of his tractors.

Since then, I've been looking at this some more. Because of our loader(you didn't say if you have one), I'd like to get some wider front tires, wider than the worn 7.50x16's that we're running, like you. I'd also like to keep about the same diameter. Might be willing to get new front rims to get wider tires. Am also willing to run used truck tires like the 7.50's.

That led me to wonder what's out there besides 7.50x16's or the stocker tri-ribs. The other choices that I found:
235/85R16 - rims would have to be reversed
265/85R16 - new wider rims needed
11L-16 - new wider rims needed, might overload the spindles

This is distilled down from several tire and rim charts and I can't say that I know for certain that any of these would work ok. Also, not just any new rims might work, only those with specific offsets.

I do have a loader up front. However, with only the 48 in bucket I think the 6 ply R1 would suffice. The rocks around here are tough any tire. Thanks to all for your insight.

One other option might be a pair of 10.00x16's. They are on quite a few 56/66/76/7700's and -10's. Might be able to find a usable set on rims at a salvage yard. Should have the correct offset.

I was typing too fast, second one should be 265/75R16.

I'm running 246-75-16 on my 4600 and 4000 because they came off my brother's 2500 GMC and I couldn't justify the cost new hi rib tractor tires. I did need to turn the rims around on the 4600, but not on the 4000 for those tires, but they "look" correct and appropriate for the use to me.
