New Tires for 2012 Rancher ES

Went to Rock mountan ATV and want to get the maxxis bighorn radials 2 (on the suggestion of kentco) but not sure what size to get?

my 2012 Ranche ES came with 24x8-12 on front and 24x10-11 rear I would like a little more clearance but not too much. What would you all suggest?

I want to keep them on stock rims.

Thanks in advance for the input.

I would say one size bigger than the stock tire you have now.

76FJ: I would recommend that you stay with the same size as stock, in that the Bighorns typically run about 1" larger (in total height) than the same size stock tire. In other words a Bighorn 24X8X12 would be about 1" taller than the 24X8X12 that came on the Rancher. If you really want to, you can go to a 25" Bighorn if you get the Bighorn 2 tires.You'll love the Bighorn2 tires.

Your doing what I thought about doing and want to do. However I'm thinking about going with new 12" wheels all the way around and DID think about 25" tall tires but now unsure on that one.

I agree with kentco and you should always bring a decent measuring tape with you when you choose new tires as well as know (accurately) what your original tire & rim sizes are.

my hunt club is hard to get big equipment to so once my atv is there it will be there till early spring. I want good reliable tires before i coss the water with it. I am basicly happy with stock clearance so one more inch will be just right.

76: Here is what the Bighorns look like: Pictures of my Ready-To-Work Rincon

I really think that it would be best (for handling and for clearance) to stay with stock sizes since the outside diameter of the Bighorns is a little larger anyway. You'll definately be happy.

Post a picture of your new tires once you get them. We always like seeing a Honda with a nice, new pair of shoes on!
