Why run 10" rims w/18" tires?
I run 8" rear rims and don't plan to switch anytime soon when it comes to MX. Some guys run 9" but around here 10" is unheard of, even for XC. 9 would be the ideal size for all around and nothing but 8 for pure MX.

If you have a 18" rear tire with a 10" wheel, if you are racing and jumping you will most likely bend your wheels and or crack them. You will also experience hard landings. Do they make a 18" tire for a 10" wheel?

Yes, they make 8",9"and10" rims. But, you are right about the landing. Cory Ellis did a test with the rims and tires like this and he like the 9" rims for all around riding. But, they also said that for track the 8" rim was better because of the harsh landings. More rubber, softer landing!!

True and also with a smaller tire 18" you'll get just a little more RPM's out of the TRX too.
