I have a JD 4300 four wheel drive compact tractor. I would like to know if 27 x 10.50 x 15 front wheel/tire combination will work. The operators manual lists 27 x 8.50 x 15. Would putting the larger tire/wheel combination on the front affect anything (4x4, turning radius, etc.)? Thanks.

The extra 1.5 inches in width may cause some rubbing or interference with the FEL or MMM if so equipped. I would suggest turning your current front wheels full turn lock to lock and measure the amount of clearance you have with any potential obstructions. If the ply/weight rating is suitable for use and the tire diameter is the same as the OEM tires; you should be fine provided there are no interference issues. Turning radius should not be affected to any noticable degree, and 4 x 4 should work the same. If the tire diameter is different, you may run into drive train binding issues in 4 x 4. Measure and compare these tires to your current tires to be certain they are of identical diameter.
