you need 12 inch wheels the last number on the tire is the wheel size so 25/10/12 the 12 is the wheel size also make sure you get the correct wheel offsets i believe its a 5+2 rear and 2+5 front

I understand 12 is the size. What I'm trying to make sure is that my rims ar correct. The rear rim says 12x7 and my tire is ITP 25 x 12 x 10, and the front rim says 12x6 and the tire on it is ITP 25x 12x 8 ARE THESE THE CORRECT RIMS?? Sorry guys

I have an 02 450 and that's the same rims I have on my machine and I'm positive they are original.

Yes the oem rims have the size stamped into the steel and I remember the fronts are narrower than the back but cant remember the exact size, I thought there was a .5 in there somewhere. My aftermarkets are 7" wide front and back like most are.

Hi, I have a 2001 Honda Foreman TRX 450 ES. The guy I got it from put Vampire Super Swampers on. The rears are good, the front need to be replaced. I'd like to replace the front 2 now and the rear at a later date (once they have worn out). Can I go to a less aggressive tire for the fronts? The current tires are 26s all around. I presume I should stick with something in the 26 size? Any suggestions on a decent tire that won't break the bank?
