Do you think I can put 30 inch BKTs 30-8-11 on the 2018 Honda 420 rancher and wouldn’t need a Gear reduction
Not a chance. The DCT automatic 420 will come to standstill in thick mud with 27's, and the foot shift straight axle version will come to a standstill with 28's. Even 28's are pushing it unless they're light like Zillas. If you ride any mud at all and not just water, I wouldn't go any bigger than a 27. If you want to run 30's, you'll need a gear reduction for sure.

You’ll need a 69% gear reduction, 2” lift and a 2 to 3” swingarm stretch. DO NOT lift your rancher without the swing arm stretch, your shaft and joints won’t last five minutes.
