Default can I use L3200 R1 tires for my L3240

Hi guys I'm new here....
I recently purchased a set of R1 tires and rims from an L3200 for my tractor.
My tractor is an L3240 can I run these tires?
The fronts are right at 7.2-16 but the rears are 11.2-24 instead of 12.4-24.
Will these take out my 4wd?

Thanks
Phil

There is about 1% difference in the L3200 set, over the L3240.

It could work without damage, but 1% added to whatever percentage it already is could throw it off too much.
You would be safer by getting smaller front tires, 7-16. then your ratio would be fine.

Thank you for your reply!
It would bring it closer if I run Ice chains on the back right?
I've got a used set of skidder chains I'm cutting down for the rear....
The terrain I'm working is woodlot ,hilly and kinda soft...
I'm trying to install a trail (road) system to cover my property.

Yes if you put chains on the rears only then you would be well within the proper ratio.
