This is just my opinion but, putting 10" wide tires on the front could make your quad a real bear to turn, especially at very slow speeds. They may also rub when you make tight turns. Just food for thought.

They may work I really don't know but, the Rincon has more space in the wheel wells. As I stated that was just my opinion and something that I would want to check on before making the purchase.

I have put my brother n laws 27x10x12 mudlites and rims on my rancher with no rubbing what so ever. have also tried a set of 27X10x14 mudlite xtr tire with no rubbing. but they are way to heavy.

You can really kill your power with tires that are oversize and create other issues. The suspension isn't designed to handle the added load of the big tires. They look pretty good but ride, handling and durability can all suffer. That is a lot of extra stress and load on the tie rod ends and other parts. As the saying goes, "Been there, done that". JMO

there are two things that play into that .one being weight, the other is height which causes loss of gearing, weight is the main concern.weight is what brakes things. not the fact that there is added height.the power loss I have obseved it not that great. the tire wheel combo that I have are around 30 lbs per tire wheel combo.which is at least 3 to 4 lbs less than mud lights on the same rims. I have had the ill fate of braking an axle due to a heavy a tire/ wheel combo. the combo was XTR with 14" rims. you just have to choose a tire wheel combo with less rolling resistance. But unless you spend a lot of time in the deep mud as most do down here than go with a milder tire.

You are absolutely correct. A taller tire/wheel combination changes your gear ratio. It is pretty difficult to find larger tires and after market wheels that weigh less than the factory sets do. If you go to a radial design you will add more weight. It is really up to the owner of the quad as to what he or she wants. I have had experience with issues caused by going too big in the tire and wheel department and was just passing on the information. With 27" tires on a 420 Rancher you WILL see a pretty substantial loss in power the first time you drop off into a large mud pit. I will add, the larger/heavier wheel tire combination can cause added stress on the drive train, clutches and etc.

Go to ITP's website and click on the gallery. There are quite a few 420's with the itp 212 wheels on them. I've been looking into getting those wheels also. Trying to figure out which tire I want to go with though.
