Wheel and tire size help needed.

I don't know how to order. The wheels I'm looking at are ITP T-7 12X7 w/ 5+2, is this the same offset as stock (Teryx). I don't have to much room to spare on the trailer.

What about tires? I have big horn in mind. What size for front and back, and which ones will hold up longer. Originals or 2.0.

The 5+2 offset is basically th stock offset. The will be just slightly wider than stock. I have the same offset on the front and added spacers to it. I also have the big horns and would not use any other tire. Only 1 punture due to a cactus that was easily fixed.

If I had to buy new tires again right now I would probably try the big horn 2.0. They are lighter than the original.

I would not go over 26", Bighorns run on the big side so it is like buying 27"

Would it be safe to say that the 25" Bighorns are the same height as the stockers or would the 26" be closer? How much difference in height will 1" in rim width make?

OK. 26" bighorns seem like the way to go. If I get a wheel 12X7 w/ 5+2 offset what width tire? Same size tire front and back?

I don't understand or know anything about that offset stuff, but on the factory wheels, I am running 10" width on the front and 12" width on the rear. I think 12's would rub on the front.
