Was reading an article in Quad mag and ITP is advertising they have a new 10" rear wheel for our bike, has anybody purchase them and how do they look with our IRS system, do they have good clearance, wish I knew about this earlier, would have bought those instead of the DWT. With the 10" rims, we have a better selection of tires.

The a-arm clearance issue is exactly why I didn't get the ITP rims when I crashed my 700 and had to replace one of the rear rims. I just got another stock rim, but will probably go with DWT when I trash the stock ones... The way I ride, that will happen sooner or later. I'm hard on equipment. As for now, I love my Maxxis tires. But as our quad gets older, more manufactures will make tires to fit the 700xx giving us more choices in the way of tires. Be patient. As it is, I plan to ride the pig snot out of my tires. When it's time to replace them, I'm betting that there will be more choices for both the tire AND rim.

You would have thought that ITP would have spec it for the clearance. From what I can see they would be ok for trailing but not for mudding. Also the pictures do not show how much clearance they have and noticed that you've ask for more pictures. Basically if we could find a deep wheel that would give enough clearance, we can just drill them out to fit our bike.

I have a pair of 10" ITP and have a few concerns ;

1 : Due to the offset it makes the rear 48" wide. The front is 44.5" wide.
Not good when dodging trees. Tyres fitted are Klaw XC 20x11x10
2 : The rim edgea are kinda thin and would of like a reinforcing ring on the outside ,I cannot see them lasting long on tree dodging. It gets tight sometimes.
3 : due to the width and offset .the best tyre would be a 20x9x10 which would end being a front tyre , Which leaves in the same problem as using 11" rims. No tyres suitiable.

If I was to go back a month ,I would order the DWT or OMF 11" rims and use the tyres avaible.

That looks badass, but Baxter has me thinking about this wheel deal. I have 11" now. But I'd RATHER one my 22x11x10 razr2's. In order for me to do this - i'd have to do it this way. Just not sure about the extra width!

you put 22x11x10 on ITP's . It will be just under 23" tall and add 4" to rear width. Plus mounting them on the bead will make you wince. First bead popped on at 22 psi the second after adjusting the tiedown strap off centre was 39psi. Max on side of tyre listed was 35 psi. The second tyre went on at 48 psi. With out the tiedowns the tyre would be 24" tall and odd shaped.
Not for the faint hearted !

That must of been fun !
When ever I do atv tires ,I always remember the duck and cover from past years.
By the way ,I work on a farm where the biggest tire to date is a 900mm wide on a 42" rim. The first time I ran and forgot to take the inflater off ! Had to go back .

48psi..... :steamed:I bet there was some language mixxed with duck and cover on that one. Once I get too high (35psi+) I just stop and hit the tyre with a mallet; that usually makes it pop.

OMF will sell you some rings to go with those 10" ITP's, just have to weld em in yourself. I have faith in the 10's and think with the right front end setup would be a great performer at a good price.

Our big deal with the 10" wheels I think is the overall width. Me personally - i'm not worried how close they are to the A arms - i dont think that's even going to be an issue, specially the baja wheels drilled as the rings GREATLY increase the strength. If i break one of those wheels, i'm going to have other issues to worry about. I'm just concerned with fitting down my trails and being able to turn on them.

I wish someone could design some A arms that allow us to run 10" wheels and NOT make the quad wider.
