    The larger tire won't hurt as long as you enough room around the tire. But you have to take in consideration of a bigger tire also lifts the mower higher. So, you would be cutting an half inch higher on your deck height. Be sure to either adjust deck to compensate or mower half inch lower.

    You might even find going to a different "brand" of tire will give you a larger or smaller diameter.
    Try this site, I've been very happy with them, and good prices.
