    We use that size on many of our and customers tractors they work fine. We prefer the look as well as performance.

    On 3000 series power steering tractors you can easily rub the front tire on the power steering cylinder before hitting the travel stops on the spindles. I had to adjust the steering linkage accordingly. Was a problem with both the factory tires as well as the replacement ones I used. So, my tractor turns a bit sharper to the left than the right.
    The wider front axle on a 4000 series gives better side clearance for the tires and so has not been a problem.
