On hard ground grip seams to decrease with wider tyres


Wider tyre give lower ground pressure.
It spreads the weight of the tractor so the grips dont sink in and get grip

Agreed. But given the amount of times that ground gets that hard in Ireland, I'd sooner have the wider tyres. And I live on dry, steep land. You get much better wear on the wider tyres and nothing like a bit of opposite lock after a shower of rain during a dry spell to hone the rallying skills!
