My son has a Recon he has the 2" lift, dyno jet, K&N filter, HMF pipe with 22x11x9 gator on rear and stock 25" foreman tires on front, but he wants a 25" tire on the rear, so what is a 25" tire that will fit a 9"? And would you have to cut the foot plastic for it to fit? Thanks

A 25" tire will fit the Recon without and cutting,but I don't think your going to find a 25" tire that will fit the 9 inch rim.You're going to have to buy 12" rims.
The stock 25x10-12's from my Foreman fit on my Recon,wheel and all.

This is my wife's Recon. All bone stock except for the rims and tires. 12" aluminum Rincon rims with 8-12-25 fronts and 10-12-25 rear Bear Claws.

The rears rubbed a bit when the suspension compressed over bumps, but after the tires rubbed about 1/4" of lower fender away, all is fine.

I can't tell any difference in power with the larger wheels/tires. Probably because the combo weighs about the same as the stock steelies.

they do make 25" tires for a 9" rear wheel. here are most of them:
25x12x9 Mudlite XL
25x12x9 Maxxis Sur Trak
25x12x9 Maxxis Mudzilla (very heavy)
25x12x9 Maxxis Mud Bug
25x12x9 GBC Gator
25x12x9 GBC Dirt Devils
25x12x9 Swamplites
25x13x9 Vampires
25x12x9 Bear Claws
25x12x9 Superlite(same as Mudlite)

Those are most of your choices for a 25" tire on a 9" wheel. I would storngly suggest not putting a 25" tire on a recon because of the added wear and tear. I would look into something in the 22" range. Most of the tires on this list make a 22" version. Hope this helps you out.

I'll have to search back but I put 25 in mudlites on all 4 corners of my boys recon over a year ago and this thing is unstopable. I didn't notice any difference in performance at all. Give me a few to search old posts.
