|jason_hildo||would 23s on the front not get awful close to nerf bars, depending on the model of course but it looks like it would be tight with mine. Anyone else found this?|

|Nash04||I use 23x7x10 in the front with either 22x10x11 or 24x10x11 and haven't had any issues climbing any hills and I like the 23 since I'm able to go over rocks/trees easier and when I ride on rough trails, I barely feel it since the 23's just rolls over the obstacles. As for balance/level, had to get used to it but no big deal, just need to change your riding method.|

I know exactly what you are saying. I almost dumped mine over backwards last week. I was going up a steep rutted hill, fortunately for me I got out of a bit of a pickle on that one.
I'm interested to hear if anyone has something to say on this as well. I would definitely think it's going to pop your front end up a little higher which in turn probably will shift balance to the back a little more.

Soon i will be purchasing new tires. Through my reading i have settled on the maxxis razer tire. I am not interested in replacing factory rims; so i will buy the 22x10x11 razers for the rear.
My real question is in regards to the front tires. I see that the 22x7x10's and the 23x7x10's are both 6ply (which is what i want). I have read how the majority of people purchase the 23x7x10. Has anyone experienced any detrimental effects with the 23x7x10's while hill climbing. I am in AL, so if im not riding at a ATV park, im riding in a Strip Pit with lots of steep hill climbs. Many times i have to push my 700 right to the edge of tipping to make it up the hills my friends and i climb. Even at the ATV parks that i have been to you have to do some pretty serious hill climbs to make it through the "Black Trails".
The engineers at Honda, designed and built the 700 with 21's on the front. I am afraid if i purchase and install the 23's, it will shift the balance of my machine ever so slightly enough that on the hills that i almost tipped on, i will now tip on.
Don't get me wrong, i don't only hill climb. i would like the fact that the 23's overcome obstacles easier.
If the 22's are the lesser of the two evils, i will purchase them.
I am in great need of multiple opinions on the matter above. Help me out people!

|Thorsky||I finally ordered mine. 22 x 10 - 11 Razr Rears / 23 x 7 - 10 Razr II fronts. The real shock was when I asked my local dealer how much they could get them for. I was mainly asking to make myself feel good about the great deal I'd get ordering online from RockyMountain. SHOCK AND AWE - the dealer got 'em for me for about $20 less than RM! Bonus is that since I bought them there, they'll mount them for $5 a pop. Should have them middle of the week.|

I use ITP wheels and IPT XCR 20 x 11-10 and Kenda 22 x 7-10 and it handle way better, the inche lost in the back lower the gravity center and you all know that we got plenty of room for the rear the end. I Just restarted praticing for enduro like gncc race here in my place and with this set-up and my EHS big three (waiting for the pipe) I'm very satisfied with the result. Since fryday morning (the 2nd) I used 4 tanks of gas in a close track with all kind of terrain. No bike ever ever pulled like that in my arm.
