 Jubelee Tire size

I have a ford jubelee with a freeman loader and 6' bucket.
It also has a 7' rear blade.
The rear tires' size are 12-4-28 11-28.
I have been looking to repace this tractor with
a newer 4wd model.
The reason for this is that I will soon need to replace the inner tube and perhaps the rim since it is starting to rust around the valve stem.
More importantly when we get a lot of snow and it builds up
it takes a lot of effort to move the snow.
Before I give up on this old friend I was wondering if I could purchase bigger and wider rear tires with more potential weight to improve traction and the ability to push more snow?
If so how big tires and rims to purchase and what is the potential cost.

I used to have an International Harvester model 350 utility tractor with a FEL, it had the same size rear tires as you have. I changed to bigger 13 or 13.6X28, I don't remember for sure. In soil it helped a lot, in snow it really did'nt do any good. So I went back to the trusty old tire chains to get snow moved. In my situation chain damage to the drive or yard did'nt matter, but if you have a nice blacktop drive, etc. then it does matter so chains may not be an option. I don't know the value of your Ford, but with new rims (maybe special order for extra wide), new tires, old tire disposal, etc. etc., you could maybe wrap up half the value of the tractor just doing what you propose. If you've allready got the "New Tractor Bug" you'd probably be better off trading the Ford in "as is" on a new or newer compact W/FEL, and Front wheel assist. If you need to skip some options to meet budget restraints, eliminate most anything else (hydro drive, cruse control, extra hydraulic valves, etc.) but don't buy one without front wheel assist. Best of luck. Frank.

To go wider means less pounds per square inch. The 11-28 tells you it has an 11 wide rim which matches to a 12 tire. To put a 13-6 on would stand it on the center and give a more uneven tire life. The rust around the valve stem doesn't mean to much unles there is a lot of metal missing. We have welded valve stem holes shut and started a new hole before but the rims are reasonably priced for replacment.

Wider tires will just increase the floatation which is not what you want for snow. If you want to keep the old Ford, get new tires and tubes (~$450) and as much ballast weight as the 3pt will lift. Mostly put as much weight on the rear wheels as you can.
