    I did not realize that the 293 had a different size tire

    No, but I wanted a bigger tire plus an ag tire so I went with this one on the back.

    Titan® Tire catalog

    I think its about 2" taller than stock.

    I went with a bigger tire on the front also.
    It was a trupower Ag tire 23x10.50-12 It stands about 1.5" taller than the stock tire.
    The ag tires make a big difference in pulling a disc and loader work.

    I don't think I am wanting to go to AG tires, but would really like to get a sense of how much better traction is on a 293 vs 273. Boxblading, pulverizer & pushing snow are the tasks I need that for. Also would be nice to have the extra clearance when the backhoe is on.

    If money were no object, I'd just keep 2 sets of wheels handy. Actually, I probably just have multiple tractors if that was the case.

    I don't have anything to compare it to but the tires on my 293 have done a great job in the snow. I have a very steep and windy paved driveway about 2000' long. Most of the time, I just plow pulling my 6' rear blade at an angle. With dry snow I have had no problems plowing 10" off the road this way. 2 days ago we had about 10" of really heavy wet snow so I turned the blade around and pushed the snow while heading down hill. It was really heavy but worked fine. I got stuck for a minute and though I might actually have to get the chains on to get out but with the diff locked I was finally able to get back on the road. Honestly, I was really surprised at how well the tires did in that kind of snow. I have chains for all 4 wheels but have never had to use them yet.
    As far as grading goes I have yet to ever have a traction problem even when digging in really deep with a 6' blade. My rears are filled with RG which I think really helps as well.
    Since I have not used or even seen the tires on the 273 I don't know if there is that much of a difference traction wise.

    My dealer charged me 300.00 for that upgrade.
