What size wheel ??

Ok, so I just picked up some bighorns from BYC all 25x10x12 on all four corners. My question is what size rim would you run with these size tires ?. Here is what I was thinking. 4+3 on the front and 2+5 in the rears do you guys think this would be ok ?....Give me your thoughts guys.

For stock suspension or an MTS kit (If you are positive you wont go full LT) then get 5+2 for the front and 2+5 for the rear....

If you think there is any possibility that you may go to a full LT someday then get 5+2 for all 4 corners and then add 1" spacers to the rear only. Then if you go to a full LT Kit you just ditch the spacers and you wont have to buy new wheels.

Without LT suspension I prefer the wide (2+5) offset on all four corners. But MikeF's advice is not a bad setup either.

Running 2+5's in the front can cause the spindles to bend and can cause a little bump steer but the added stability is a huge difference.

Really depends on your driving.

I would do the 4+3 in the front and 2+5 in the rear. if you dont plan on doing LT. if you do I would then do 4+3 all the way around. but with the mid travel the 2+5 will still be fine.

douglas rims I am guessing??

or better yet
so all 4+3 and then just put one or two inch spacers in the rear. this way you can rotate the tires since they are all the same size??

exact same set up I run 4+3 douglas wheels 25x10x12 tires on all four.

Not a lot of 4+3 Options for Rhinos. Most come in 5+2 or 2+5
