Replacement front rims/tires, MF231 w/ loader

Peter Surprenant I recently bought a 93 MF231 tractor w 232 loader.
It also has a rear box blade. I will be using this to dig gravel out of a creek to maintain my roads out in West Texas.
I have been told that the skinny front 6 bolt wheels/tires should be replaced by wide rims/tires for better support, working in the dry (somewhat) creek. I was told used Chevy truck rims would do this inexpensively.
Anybody had any experience with this?
What size tires fit best for maximim width?
Also, extra weight can be put in the box blade for added rear ballast. Any suggestions on best choice here?
