How much difference will an inch of tire make?

23X10.50X12 seems to be pretty common.
I seem to have plenty of clearance would I be making a mistake to go to the more common size?
I'm planning to set this up with a sleeve hitch and do ground engagement work in my garden next spring.

If you intend to use a turning plow in your garden, I'd be thinking about going to 8:50's in an AG bar tread tire. Depending on how much "bottom" you intend to pull, the narrower 850 may work in the furrow better than the 1050's. Bigger is not always better.

In fact I had not been able to find one in this area used and was considering an alternative.
I was considering making a toolbar and using cultivator shoes or scarifier teeth as a ripper plow instead.
By using the toolbar I could also use it to make raised beds, hill potatoes and corn etc. along with cultivating.
I also have a B olens front tine tiller(2yrs old) I consider too light and unmanageable for hand work, and was thinking of mounting it to the tractor to tame the jump. I bought it on a whim and have regretted it since, but since I have it why not use it.
This year I have run a 5000 sq ft garden with a Troy built walking tiller and hand tools.
I'm trying to make things easier and less manual labor.
