Stock rims are stamped with their size on them. I think its 6.5" in front and 7 in the rear. You should have no problems fitting those tires on stock wheels or their fitment on the bike either.

hey civicex, are you going to sell those 589's or maybe want to trade for some 26" 589's? i've been looking for a set of 27's, and i like the 589's i have so 27" 589's would be great. didn't really want to spend "new" money on a set, because i really cant afford it right now.

i have the same exact size tires that you want to put but in vamps. when my bike was stock i could smoke those tires. you will lose power but not enought to worry about.

I have to ask will 26 X 10.00-12 gators, and 26 X 12.00-12 gators fit on my stock foreman rims? The 10x12s would be on the front and 12x12s on back. 26 X 10.00-12 is the smallest 26inch gator I can find. I don't want them to change my turning much. Should I go with a different tire if I can't get a 26x 8 x 12?

26 inch tires will fit stock rims. I believe they base the way tires fit on atv's
by the stock rims. At least that is what i was told. Anyway, i know for a fact
that Gators will fit stock Honda rims perfect.

I know 26's will fit I'm asking about the width. Are they to wide for stock wheels.

No. Jennifer & I run 10's up front & 12's in the rear with no problems.

I thought that all the aftermarket tires are made to fit the 7" wide wheels. People just get new wheels to get new wheels.
