Can anyone tell me why Honda put 6.5" wide wheels on the front of the old 400 Foreman and went to 6" on the 450 while keeping 8 inch wide tires? I understand why they went with the 25" diameter on the 450. Also, are the Rubicon wheels the same size as 450 Foreman wheels?
Thanks,

Probably just because they are cheaper since they is less material. PLus the narrower wheel will "skinny-up" the front tire to increase ground clearance. Not sure if thats a reason though.

Yes, just made of aluminum.

Actually no. I should have said that the 400 had 11"x6.5" in the front and 11"x7.5" in the rear. My Bad!!
