11 inch to 12 inch wheel

Hi my 96 honda trx 300 fw has 25x9.50-11 on the front's and 25x12.50-11 on the rear's. the tires are shot and the rims are all dented up.
My question is i found a set off dunlop kt515 25x 8rx12 fronts and 25 x 10r x 12 rears complete tires and rims they came off a 2011 ricon 680 can i use these tires and wheels, and will they bolt right on my 300fw?
my suspension is all stock. i can get these for $250.00
the guy took them off the 2nd day he got his quad and went to larger wheels and tires.
thanks for your time
Lou

Since they're off a 680 Rincon, the rears won't work because the 680 Rincon has IRS and the offset will be different. They will sit in too far and probably rub the muffler or something. It would be like putting the front rims on the rear of your 300. You might be able to put wheel spacers on the rear and make them work.

Is that a 600 Grizzly in your avatar?

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.

Yes, IRS means independent rear suspension. All Honda utility ATVs use a 4/110 bolt pattern. Since they're 25 inch diameter tires and that is the size you have on there now, you shouldn't see any decrease in performance. The diameter of the rim won't have anything to do with performance, just the diameter (height) of the tire.
