Can anyone tell me if they use the 5 c-series that are the same size as the stock tires? Some of the sights say you have to us the "front rims" all the way around. How can you do that and run 25-8-12 tires in the front and 25-10-12 tires in the Back??? Also, do they hang out past the fenders?? I'm a rookie when it comes to mods so sorry for if these questions are too long and sound simple. Thanks for this website and your responses.

Most Honda's and Yamaha's use front and rear C Series rims. The fronts have 2" from the outside of the rim to where the hub is and 5" on the inside. On rear wheels, there is 5" on the outside, 2" on the inside. This is refered to as "Offset". Due to the Rincon having independant suspension in the rear making it wider, you have to use 4 front wheels or the rims would stick out way too far.

You can still use the same size tires. The C Series rims are all 7" wide so it doesn't matter whether they are front or rear wheels, just the offset is different. And yes, your tires will stick out a little past the fenders. Not too bad but they are definitely a little further out than stock.
