How do you determine Tire size on a 4x4 tractor when going to Low Pro tires vs Factory tall ones?

3970 20
Like I said....Looking at a possible purchase..yep its 4x4.

When swapping from tall R1's to some Low pro Radials in a perfect world.

How do you know what size for front & Rear........I'm less than skeptical about trusting any of the current employees of Any tire store local to me.

I need to do this math myself w/Help of course.

It will be a spendy venture.....I don't think tractor Data lists gear ratio's for Front & Rear axlels.
Anyone know a source for this info...??


Heres the tractor.. https://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/001/5/7/1571-john-deere-5420.html

Factory R1's
John Deere 5420 Tires
Ag front:7.50-16
Ag rear:16.9-30


This tells me not much.

You can download the owners manual for free from JD and that should have all the info for proper wheels and tires and also the combos for FWD.
