Anyone put wider tires on their 36' Vantage?

I'm considering a wider tire for my 36' Vantage, but not sure what size, or where to buy? Wondering if anyone has done this to their Vantage and what your opinion is?

Did you notice a difference? Would you do it again?

Thanks

Yea I wouldn't even consider using one of the machines without the wider tires. I think I spent $100 buying and having tires shipped and $20 to have them mounted. It eliminated the small amount of rutting we did before plus it gave the machine better traction in soft conditions allowing it not to spin. Highly recommend
