Fourtrax 300 , reasoning behind the different size tires

Anyone know the reasoning behind the different size tires front and rear ? Iíve seen people run the same size tires without immediate issues but havenít seen any long time test

2017 Honda Foreman, foot shift, manual steering. No mods yet 😓

When in doubt thorottle out

I've been running the same height of tire for years with zero issues. My front diff is also shimmed so it's full time 4x4.

I would say the reason they have 2 different size tires on a 300 is two fold , one is there is a slight difference in the gear ratios of the front and rear diffs of a 300 , and I think they put smaller tires in the front to improve steering ------- I have 6 300s , all have the same diameter tires front and rear , I have never had an issue with it
