Tires and Wheels Empty
PostSubject: Tires and Wheels   Tires and Wheels EmptyTue Mar 04, 2008 5:19 pm

Hey whats up everyone? Finally thinking about the first mod; I guess I should be thinking about. Its what I have done to all my other bikes first. The below link takes you to a kit of 25" Maxxis Bighorns mounted on Motorsport Alloy Nuke Machined & Black.

I think I am going to pay more attention to offset than I normally do and can anyone decipher exactly what the offset is on this wheel and do you think its worth it. I will also be using a discount code through the Bamaboggers so I'll be getting a great deal here. Let me know what you think.

Maxxis Bighorn Kit Tire Sizes
# 25 Inch Kit = 25-8R12 Front : 25-10R12 Rear
# 26 Inch Kit = 26-9R12 Front : 26-12R12 Rear

Does anyone think If I continue to buy from ATVDirect I will have any problems. Will these provide a decent offset on the Rhino.

The 25" Bighorns I am positive on. Kind of want the Motosport Alloy wheels which is what I had on my past bikes I traded. Think they would look awesome on this BLACK Rhino.

Although I do like these stock chrome yamaha wheels. Considering its one of the first wheels with lugnuts an Auto Wrench will tighten. More than likely I will just get the Kit though, actually cheaper.

Also If I keep running stock wheels I guess I need to put 2" spacers on the back and 1" spacers on the front.

Most places that sell a kit for a Rhino are selling all wheels 5+2 offset. If you ask for them to be reverse offset they either don't know what you are talking about or will tell you they will not fit. If you look on ITP's fitment guide they don't have the 2+5 listed for the Rhino but it is listed for the Grizzly. I run the 5+2 on my front and the 2+5 on the back and really like my setup. JMO.

5+2 for front 2+5 for rear will look like spacers all the way around

pnj's right on the money. 5+2' on the front, 2+5's on the rear make for almost even front- to rear stance. way more stability and not that much bump-steer.
I would definitly stay with 25's too.
