Default Changing up tires

So for xmas, my step dad surprised me with a set of rear tires.

In his good intentions, he went with a set of 25x12.5 kenda bearclaws...to replace my 20x10 razrs.

I know very little, so please enlighten me
The bearclaws are not only massive, they also have a much different tread pattern.

I've got 21x7 razrs with about 50% tread on the front

Not a heavy rider. Mostly just dicking around on back roads, but i do hit up some wicked trails

So with that being said, what would you recommend me doing, or not doing

I wouldn't want a 25 in back and a 21 up front throw off handling and speed and take off but I've been looking into using a bigger tire because I ride a lot of trails with creeks and rocks

I'd of thought a 22" would be fine on the back for max clearence. 25" bear claw you'll find that you will lose a lot of bottom end grunt unless you change your sprockets - maybe 12 tooth on the front?
