This might be a dumb question, but I got a spare set of front wheels and tires for my l3901. I had ordered a set of 27 inch tires as thats the size that came with it, but they sent me 28in instead. I didn't realize this until after I mounted the first one.

Will running 2 28in tires in front cause any issues?

If the outer circumference is the same it won't matter. The problem would be mounting a 28 inch tire on a 27 inch rim. I wouldn't think you could do that. The tires are possibly miss marked or maybe you read the size wrong. In either case compare the circumference of the old and the new. There is a ratio which must be maintained between the front and the rear on a four wheel drive tractor. With two wheel drive it makes no difference.
