Foreman rims/tires on a Rancher?

Looking to replace my worn out factory tires on my 2007 Rancher. Have an opportunity to buy a brand new set of 2018 Foreman tires/wheels.

Tire sizes on my Rancher are currently 24x8-12 and 24x10-11 in the rear.
Foreman sizes are 25x8-12 and 25x10-12 in the rear.

Will these fit? Any issues such as increased rollover chances or loss of speed/handling/safety?

Is this a good thing to do? Help!

Thanks!

Iím hoping the Foreman wheels/tires will be an upgrade with no downside.

Or should I just get some Maxxis Bighorn 2 tires in my OEM size and be done with it?

If the 2018 Foreman is NOT an IRS machine, get them. Great upgrade for a Rancher. Will bolt right on and look perfect.

If it IS an IRS machine, you can still use them but would have to have spacers for the rear wheels (not worth it in my opinion)

They are coming off a straight axle Foreman.

What the the advantages of using Foreman wheels?

Why didnít the Honda engineers use them? I usually stay OEM on stuff. Thanks!

Very few tires made for 11" wheels, HUGE number of tires available for 12" wheels.

That's really the only benefit, but it's a big one.

No idea why Honda still puts 11" wheels on the back of the Ranchers. Makes absolutely no sense.

You can see pics of my daughter's 350 with Foreman wheels here.

I have 12" Rincon wheels on my wife's 420AT with IRS. For your 07 ES 420 the SRA Foreman wheels will be perfect.

Yep X2 get the Foreman wheel set and don't look back.

The only reason I've been able to figure for the 11" rim is that with the 24" tires it gives just a tad more sidewall. But I run 23" tires on 12" rims which is even less sidewall and I have zero issues.

2004 TRX400FA (Rancher 400AT)
MotionPro twist throttle kit
12" handlebar mounted light bar
rear rack wheelchair carrier
Cycle Country 48" plow w/ KFI hybrid mount
Champion 3000 lb winch w/ synthetic rope
23" Titan 489's all around (saving clutch)

2011 Grizzly 450 EPS

Others in the family: '04 TRX250TE, '85 TRX250 Utility (X2), '05 TRX90, '06 TRX500FA, '95 TRX400FW,' 88 TRX125

I bought new rear forman rims for my 16 rancher, and tires all the way. Those stock tires are junk, thorns went right through
