They should fit just fine, as long as you got clearnce for the wider tire.

Yeah I put 22x11x9 on the recon rear rim.  I think the rear rims are like 9 high by 8 wide, but as above, just make sure you have room to the muffler ect.  I was going to do bear claws but though the 12's would be a bit wide for the bike.  the 11's stick out a bit past the fender edge, but are good.  I went with the dirt devils and am very happy.  The girl can go through some good mud with those tires.

My uncle has an old 250 recon and we put 25x12x9 on his!!! We had to do a few modifications like bash his exhaust pipe in a little bit and trim the fenders a little bit!!!! [:D]

Oh...so I could put 23"s on the rim then? It looks like there is plenty of room. That will just be an Inch bigger all around?

ok u know what the sizes are right? 
 
on the tires the first number is height of tire, second is width of tire, third is rim size
 
 on the rim it will say 9x8 or something like that, the first number is the rim size, the second is the width.

Heck, if I were you, I'd get some 22.5x12.5x9 Outlaw MST's. I want to put them on a 250 and see how they do.

And where do I take a look at them? And how much for 2 rear?

Joint, I have the devils on a recon and there great, better than the stockers at everything except rocks (they don' thave the bitting edges) but these tires will smoke stockers in snow, loose dirt, sand, mud, and everything else (and there a good deal).
 
Only reason I didn't go with the MST's was the width, and the lug, didn't want a big heavy lug as the bike don't have that much power, and the girl likes the light weight of it.  I like those tires.
 
If you want to know how the MST's do, read anything, anybody says about them.  There a great ALL AROUND tire.  Hard to beat, I love mine.

Here's the dirt devils (big bear has 27's) but the recon has the 22x11x9's.  The green artic cat in the picture has 25 inch dirt devils, so you can look at the tread and compare them.

So what does Lug mean?  Not really sure. So the Dirt Devils are lighter than the Outlaw MST's?????

Yes the GBC Dirt Devil is lighter than the High Lifter Outlaw MST in any size.  Weight shouldn't always be the deciding factor when choosing a good ATV tire or at least one to fit your needs.  Ride quality and overall performance can usually be considered the "scale breaking" point of a tire's worth.  Lug and tread are two different things.  Lug is a large piece of rubber that stretches across a tire's carcass.  Tread is a break up of smaller pieces of rubber that stretch across a tire's carcass.
