2WD or 4WD? How wide are your rims now? If 4WD you need to maintain the same lead ratio as the original tires and that drives your sizes. Generally you can go about an inch larger with tire size than rim width - 11" tires on 10" rims, 12" tires on 11" rims, etc. Any larger and the tread won't lie flat causing reduced traction and center wear.

This link describes lead ratio pretty well. Basically, if the ratio of front to rear tire circumference is changed you can tear up parts of the driveline. You can change tires but you have to keep the same ratio of front to rear circumference.

Glad to help. The grapple is great - excellent for rolling up slash and carrying around smaller felled trees and stuff.
