Question stock tire with new wheels???

Looking for a few answers. Picked up a 2016 Kodiak700 and want to add some different wheels but want to keep the tires it came with. Found some wheels I like but I don't know enough about sizing to go ahead and order them. Stock tires (per the manual) are AT25x8-12 for the fronts and AT25x10-12 for the rears. The size wheel being recommended are 12-7 5.0+2.0. I don't understand the numbers? I would appreciate some input.

I did exactly what you are looking to do. I bought new wheels and kept the stock tires and it worked out perfect. here is the size that I bought Front/Rear 12x7 4/110 - (5+2) So yes that size is correct.

I did the opposite: 27" Zillas on the stock steel wheels. They're lighter than aftermarket alloys and look good with the new paint (can't post a pic here, apparently I've used up all my attachment allowance)

2" lift, 1" spacers, and 27" Zillas on stock steel wheels. Lots of other little things done, most of which I made myself because I'm too cheap to buy stuff. ***SOLD***
Now I'm rolling in a 2014 Can Am Maverick 1000R Side by Side. I loved the Yammi but injuries and age conspired against riding an ATV anymore.

How are you liking those 27s.. I wanna go with 28 zilla but can't decide on new wheels or using stock.. I want the bike a lil wider but I'm unsure what offsets to use 5+2 or 4+3.. any one have a pic with these offsets on there bike

I have the 27" zillas on stockers as well. I think 28's would be too big imo. A wider stance could be accomplished with wheel spacers. I am loving the zillas btw.

I love my Zillas too. Still on the fence over whether I'm going to do the clutch modification - probably will someday but not in a hurry. I agree with Nomad - 28's might be a bit much with stock clutching. I went with spacers, 1" front and rear. Love the wider look.

Kodiak rims & tires value

What's a fair price to ask for the never-used stock rims and Maxxis tires from a 2016 Kodiak? I purchased after market rims and 27" tires, and dealer wouldn't take a trade-in. It looks like the front tires retail on-line for around $85 and the rear tires retail for around $100. Thanks.

I can only recommend looking at your local Craigslist or Kijiji ads and seeing how much people are selling similar tires/wheels for. I got $200 CDN for my nearly new stock tires (no wheels)
