Tyre swapping. Sizes?

Currently running a set of 650/75/38s with 600/65/28s on the front. Been looking for a set of replacement tyres and seen a set of 710/60/38 with fronts 600/60/28s. Will they fit my current wheels?
For what it's worth I didn't spec the tyres I currently have, they came with the tractor, that size isn't essential for what the tractor is currently doing.
Thanks.

Depends on how wide your rear rim is. You should be able to find it etched somewhere. It'll be stated as (two numbers)x38. For example 20x38. 20 meaning the width of the rim and 38 the diameter of the rim.

710/60r38 and 600/60r28 is a size lower then 650/75r38 and 600/65r28, they are a matching pair though.
Those 60 series tyres will be a vf tyre, which typically need a wider rim. You might get away with it. If you go to the manufacturers website you will find recommended rim sizes for those tyres.

Thanks. I had a look at BKT and their Agrimax V-Flecto tyres would fit on the 23" Rim.

I don’t think that would be a worthwhile swap, what you gain it width you’ll lose in height (footprint length)
