my ford has 22x9.00-12 on the back. i can get a pair of 23x10.5-12 ags for about 125.00
would i need to do anything special to the tractor so i can still use it to mow once i get it running?

Maybe check the deck for level. Are there any adjustments to level it?

its a floating deck. its either all the way up or all the was down. i should be able to adjust with the chains if needed.

I would think you'd be just fine. Like Kenny said, maybe a little deck adjustment, but other than that... the little bit of difference isn't much. You have more than 3/4" between your current tires and the fenders?

One other consideration is the rim width. A 9" wide tire will typically call for a 7" rim while a 10.5" will call for a 8.5" rim.
