if you want to take your front wheels off. look at the back and see how ugly they are and then try to mound them backwards..

So why wouldn't that work?

Aren't all Honda solid rear axles running a 2"+5" offset on the rear?

The Rincon is 5"+2" all round and all you have to do is flip the rears around and bolt 'em up.

Doesn't the Foreman also have a 2"+5" offset on the rear rims? If so, they would work.

And as far as being ugly, it's far from it. The aluminum Rincon rims look perfectly fine flipped around. I had a set mounted on my Rancher and they looked great. They are now on my wife's Recon and they fit perfectly as well.

The only drawback is the valve stem will be on the inside, which makes it a little more difficult to air up and down, but once you get used to it, it's not that big of a deal.

ratsnake, measure the outerer lip of your rear rim (on the axle side) to the center where the axle mounts. If you have 2", it will work.

They look just fine flipped around, and actually look way better than the stock steelies on my opinion.

my stock rims from the grizz have a lip around the egde of the hole where the bolts go though. so they would never set if you put them on backwards.

Yeah, but he didn't ask about Grizzly rims.

There is a lip on the Honda rims as well, and I'm sure it's there for strength purposes. Even so, enough wheel stud sticks out to get the lug nut on completely, plus the lug nut is tapered so the holes center themselves.

I think it would work fine. A simple measurement would be able to let him know.
