 Bigger R-4's

I have r4's on my MF1240, but they seem to be so small. All the other tractors in its class(1250,1260,1433,1440)all have larger tires. In the owners manual it says to replace with identical size tires. I know larger tires would fit because i measured the larger tires and the clearence on my fenders etc. So, can I put a set of larger R4's on my tractor or not?

I think the chassis on your 1240 is the same as the 1250 and 1260. You don't mention rims. You would have to most likely change them too because the wider tires would need wider rims. Not sure of your sizes, but I know some tractors of the same chassis like the JD4210 and 4310 use 14" and 15" tires respectively on front. Good Luck!

I have a used one here with ag tires on it and "I thought" it was a good match for size to horsepower.
