It doesn't hurt to have a bigger size on the back, was probably done either because they had them or to get more flotation and the larger size would not with the standard rims have cleared the front end for turning. New size when they were made was 7:60 X 15 6 ply and that is only a 5 ton rated gear, not 8 or 10 tons that it seams most people think they are rated at and overloading them.

Forgot to include that the orignal factory wheels were 5" wide rims and the 6:70, 7:10 or 7:60 and even the 8:00-8:20 tire would work on them as well. Your smaller tires are equal to the 7:10 while the larger are equal to the 8:20 and your pressent tires are probably in those passenger car size are 4 ply rated. You can buy a 7:60 in either a 6 or 8 ply rated for same money as the 9.5 L tire and they will carry the same loads, just the 9.5 will have a bit more flotation in soft muddy ground but they the extra width if you are sinking in will pull harder pushing the extra mud ahead of them. If you go with those flotation type tires you need at least a 6" or for some mentioned a 7" wide rim so unless it already has the aftermarket wide rims on you would also need to buy new rims as well as the tires to go with the flotation type of tire. Me a 7:00 X 15 light truck tire that is the same size as the 7:60 x 15 implement is what I used on both the 953 and 963 gears.
