10" vs 12" Skid Steer Tires

I am new to the skid steer world and when I bought my 2005 New Holland LS 170 it came with the wolf paws for snow. Now coming to spring I need rims and tires and am trying to figure out which size would be a better match. We are a landscape construction company so will be in some sloppy areas in the spring. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

My father has a L170 that I have spent some time in, In my opinion they don't have enough power for 12" In mud conditions where you need to be spinning your tires.

We run 12-16.5 on all our L175 skids with no issues.
