Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have swapped tires on my Fords numerous times and never had to dismount, turn around and remount tires. Just move the tire/wheel assy from one side to the other of the tractor when you want to change the spacing.

I bought a Branson 2400 and wanted more stability on hills. I'm running a 5 foot rotary mower ( brush hog) and I had room for 4.5 inches on each side and still keep my tires in the mowed grass. I built this out of .250 plate and 4 inch lengths of 8 inch, .250 wall pipe.

Local machine shop cut the 4 plates for a hundred bucks. REALLY makes a difference on hills.

For your sized tractor I would suggest .375 or .500 material.

Note: I originally had fractions rather than decimal measurements but the site wouldn't let me upload. So, I tried decimals. Let's see if they work.
