We are talking about wheels not tires. A 9" wheel isn't going to give you anymore clearance than a 8" wheel. The tire size will determine that.Originally posted by Ride_Red626@Sep 29 2004, 10:38 PM
It depends on your riding style and what kind of riding you do. I am going to have to disagree with quadboy a little and say if you ride trails you may be better off with a 9 inch for clearance reasons. I know its only an inch but its better than nothing. If you are MX’ing you could probably get an 8 inch rim. As far as the integrated hub, I don't know much about it. I would have to say no to it just for the same reason as the others said... if you want to sell it someone may not want it that has an R?
It only matters what you want. Just so you know. The 9" is the best all around rim. Because your tire has the best of both worlds. It's right in the middle. 8's are better for more rubber under the rim for jumping and the 10's are better for less weight under the rim and your quad. But the 9's will be right inbetween. 8's are best for track and maybe 10's can be good for trail. But I would think you made the right choice for you. It's your money!!!

well i went with 9" do to the fact that most xc tires do not come it 8" and i would like to be able to run both mx and xc tires.
