First time posting on this forum hopefuully this is the correct area for my question. I recently acquired a 2002 Honda Rancher 2x4 350 ES. The tires are BALD. My next door neighbor happened to have 4 ATV tires that are used but are much better than the ones I have on it. The current tires/ rims are front 24x8-12 and the rears are 25x11-10.
The new tires I want to put on are front 25x8-12 and the rears are 25x10-12. I think the fronts should be just fine on the current rims, and obviously I would need to buy new 12 inch rims for the rears. If I do this, will these new tires and new rear rims work on this quad? It is going to primary be used for dragging baseball fields and maybe some light trail riding. I just don't want to go buy two new rear rims and then find out this combination won't work. Any help is greatly appreciated.

another way you might handle it , the dealerships around here sell what they call take offs , people buy a new atv and want an upgrade on tires and rims , they take the stock tires off and sell the complete set for $200 , 4 new tires , rims , center caps , valves stems already mounted and full of air ---by the time you buy 2 rims and pay for dismounting and mounting you might be half of that price for 1/2 worn tires

Here's our 02 TRX350FE 6900 miles; with 25x8x12 up front and 25x10x12 quad boss. It was a manure plow for the stables then when it stopped running right I got it.

These wheels came off an 06 Rancher 4x4; I don't think it's been lifted

I like the 10s in the rear because gives it the right amount of stagger; 12 wides look OK too just stick out further. We take it in clay and seems the wider tires throw more clay

Thanks so much for the info and photos! I was wondering what the new tires would look like and now I know its a great look and best of all I can move forward with these all new (slightly used ) tires for the cost or two rims! Thanks again !
