If you put the 18's on the front wouldn't your deck hight be all messed up?

..I'm not sure about mowing issues, I have not bought it yet, ( I'm still looking @ the 720 too) just think the stock ones look so small, ......

I'm sure it's doable if you really want to put them on an X540, but I bet you lose a good bit of mobility with the larger tire. My X500 (with the so small stock tires) doesn't turn as tight as the X300s (with the super small stock tires) did...

...Ah ..then I bet a 720se is even worse for turns........
I'm going from a "318",( replacing it) so this is a learning curve.....

Not too much different:
X540 - 22" turning radius, 24" uncut circle radius
X720SE (62" deck) - 25" turning radius, 28" uncut circle radius

I'm amazing how easily mine turns around obstacles. :trink39:
