The 14.9-24 was generally used on the LCG tractors and had a different reduction ratio to compensate for use of the smaller tire. If you change to a 28" tire you'll probably find the tractor to be quite a bit faster. That may or may not be a problem to you...
The tractor itself would probably be better with the 28" tires provided the axle reduction is appropriate.
I think you'll also find the front spindles are shorter than standard on your tractor... so if you change to 28's it's not going to sit level.

Rod...I was kind of worried about the ground speed, the tractor has the 6-4 tranny so I"m limited on the slow side. I don"t do any tilling but i do some gravel grading and like to go real slow for that. I just can"t get past the way the 28s look, they fill the fenders up real nice. I have 7.5s on the front and didn"t notice if the tractor sat too far out of level or not. Guess i can just put the 28s on and run for awhile and see how I like it.Thanks for the input...Dan
