what replacement tire size for NFE

I picked up a 1950 C last weekend and I need to replace the rotten snow tires on the front end. I think it came with 4.00-15 but would it be better to put 5.00 or 5.50 15s on instead. Hate to buy tires and not like them afterwards. What have you all done for replacements.

Original front tires on a C were 4.00-15 with an option of 5.00-15. Depending on what you intend to use the tractor for, either should be satisfactory.

Thanks Jim, I think ill order me a set of the 5.00- 15s. Not sure if they will afect the ability to turn the steering wheel or not? Cant be any worse than the WFE steerability I would think.
