Rim HELP!

Ok Short story and then the question. I let a friend try my 700 and he crashed it and flipped it over backwards. Front rim is bent bad, exhaust bent and broke pipe, rear grab bar bent.
I just got off the phone with HMF exhaust and they can repair the exhaust for less than $100. Sending that out next week when I can get the exhaust off.

I was looking at Douglas wheels and thinking of the .125 rims but are the .190 a better rims for what we do?? What size do I want to get for the stock tire size?? What offset should I get??
FYI my 700xx is basically stock except for the Nerf bars, Full HMF exhaust, Power Commander, and Airbox lid mods. I do have Razr 2 tires on the rear and stock tires on the front. Thanks

.190 is stronger.
Stock is 10x5 4+1 offset.

If you have razr 2s on the rear does that mean your running a 10" rear wheel? If so you may want the wider off set up front to help even it out some with the 50+" rear.

Come to think of it the rear tires may be Razrs. I do know the rear is wider than the fronts, so would I be better off with the 10X5 3.0 + 2.0 or going with the
10 X 6 3.0 + 3.0?? just to be clear I have no clue what those numbers mean and I have been searching here looking at all kinds of tire/rim information.
Thanks

Well even if your stock size in the rear you may want the front wider than stock. The offset #'s are just that. The stock 4-1 off set is from the center of the rim you have 4"s towards the center and 1" to the out side. So a 3-2 would have one less inch on each side towards the center, making you aprox 2"s wider in the front. Hope this helped. I'd add a link to a picture to but power is out. I think Rockymountainatvmc has info....

I know this is several months old, but for group knowledge I'll chime in. I have the STI Xc on my wifes KFX 400 and I like them a lot. I just got me 700xx yesterday and already had a pair of mounted STI XCs that I will be putting on my quad. I'll give my impression when I can.

Maybe thevinstigator can give his thoughts on them since he has had them for a few months now

I have a set on the rear of my son's quad. I really like them. They are 6-ply rated and are reasonably priced. Traction is good all around, and they slide well. While I would like to try some different tires, I will most likely put these on my 85 ATC 250R, and my wife's KFX700.
