The tractor looks great! What do you have on it for tires? The fronts look a little wider than usual.

So you upsized both fronts and rears. It looks well balanced without the tipped up in the back look that can happen if you just do larger rears.

Look's Great Mark! Those tires make it look like a mean green plowing machine! Nice choice on the tire combination.

Does the mower deck still work okay with the larger tire sizes?

Thanks everyone. I have had this tractor for abut 12 years and it my main work tractor. I have wanted to do this tire combo on it for a long time and finally did it. Now I really don't want to change it back but I will until the next Plow Day comes along. The reason I cleaned it up is that my daughter had one of her senior pictures taken with it and it is her favorite tractor that I have and the first one she ever drove. Man does time ever fly.

Doug, see what your could look like with a little elbow grease.LOL.

Thanks again,
Mark
