I emailed Douglas about them making an 11" rim for the XX. They have them available and are working on more options, including a 12-inch rim that will fit. Here's the response to my inquiry:

Part No.: 011-47
Description: 11X7 (5B+2) 4/144 .190
Retail: $112.44ea


*we are also in the process of making a 12" diameter wheel to fit as
well and a 11" .190 beadlock is in the works as well.

Nice job... Price will come down as more rim options become available... They have to cover their R&D costs.

I don't really see the point in the 12-inch rim. It will be useless unless you are going to run taller tires than the stock 22's. I sure wouldn't want to raise the XX any higher than it is.

I can see a need for it...those wanting to run 24 tires for more clearance. I have seen that on other models.

If you need that much clearance, you should be riding a ute! Yeah, it's only an inch more in ride height, but that would seriously effect the handling....in a bad way.

Road use realy weres cross-tires down. So lots of us have 2 sets of wheels.

What bolt pattern does the XX use in front and back? The standard Honda pattern? 12" rims should be no problem getting right now.

If you're racing in the Enduro...12 Hours of ATV America, or the new 10 Hour race they are planning in Iowa the ruts can be pretty nasty... That extra inch is nice when you see all the chain drive/solid axles hangning up on their sprockets and disc brakes. If you're not racing it's probably overkill unless you like the looks or have need for it in your local riding area.
