You don't need a special machine. You do need to find someone who is willing to do it though. Sometines breaking the bead on Honda wheels is a real pain in the butt. Mounting new tires to the wheels is really easy on any tire machine at any of the local auto shops. Good luck

Hey Rhino - just noticed that you also have a Rancher AT. I have been considering one as a second ATV. Comments/impressions as to how it stacks up against the Rincon?

TIA

Great 2nd quad. I bought ours for my wife and she loves it. No problems or issues to mention at all. Great all around quad! Any specifics you want to know?

That's excatly what I had it in mind for - my wife as I think we will reach a point where she would rather be on her own ATV. What made you decide on the 400AT versus one of the 350 versions?

Truth is my wife liked it more. Full floor boards, fully automatic and had the style of my Rincon. Thats all she needed, besides my recomendation. Turned out to be a great great bike! I go out with a lot of friends who do not own a quad and it's proven to be the perfect for them to ride for the first time. It's also a Honda so I trusted it was a sound quad buy...

Does the rancher AT feel like it has less power than the standard Rancher ES? My wife wants the AT because she is not comforatable with the shifting even if it is a push button! LOL

From what I hear its about the same because of the tranny. Thats why they made it a 400 instead of just hooking up the tranny to the 350 motor. Also I understand it's the same engine as the 350 just more displacement but don't quote me on that. If your wife likes to ride she will love it! It's an AWESOME trail machine. It does about 51mph with her on it. One more note, my wife loves the mud. I can't keep her out of it. She will get it stuck but can always back out in the real deep stuff!
