 Widening the tires on JD4300

I keep seeing references to widening the tires for stability on the CTB. I have a JD 4300 and looking at it, the rear rims have about 7-8 inches inside and out so reversing the rims doesn't appear to be the answer. Maybe I'm missing something. Could somebody tell me how to go about widening the tires. I have a lot of slopes plus a pond dam and it makes me nervous to get up on some of them. The tires are R4s.

Switching the wheels from left to right will widen the tread. You don't gain very much--about 1 .25 inches--on overall tractor width measured to the outsides of the rear tires.
