Question Tire size changes??

Hi, I'm new to this site. I have stock 25x8x12's front and 25x10x12's rear on my 07 TRX500 RUBICON. Can I put bigger tires and rims on my quad? And how much bigger should or could I go? And what are the reasons some people go with larger tires? Thanks!

To play in the mud and spend more money!!!!! LOL. You should be able to go with 27's with no problem, I have 27x10x12's and 27x12x12's on my 04 rincon and all I had to do was trim the inner fender on the right front. Just remember if you do decide to go bigger it is going to put more stress on the drive line. It will also make your bike vear towards bigger mud holes than before. LMAO.
Love my mudlites!!!!

Welcome to the forums.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
