I have pulled my Deere 4-14" trailing plow with my 3 cyl 4000. Loaded 16.9x30's with no wheel weights. It pulled it easily after I put a 300 lb weight on the 3pt hitch. All kinds of power, but short on traction until I added the weight. Gravelly loam soils. You have more HP with more or less the same chassis weight.

3 bottom like a Ford model 101 16" if you have 16.9X30 rear tires.

4x what.... 4x14"... yeah. 4x20"... not so much.
I agree with Rick; the power is there for any of them... but the problem will be getting that power hooked down to do anything other than spin.. You've got the lighter chassis and 2wd so it's not working in your favor. A mounted 3x16 would be about as much as I'd want on that tractor 'here'.
