Please explain why people are getting 10in wheels

I see a lot of people on here talking about 10in wheels. Can someone tell me why is it worth it to get 10in Wheels in the rear and I heard there is some offset you have to get for them. I am still new to all of this.

Thank you

the stock wheels are 11" and therefore the choice of tyre available is very limited as 11" is a very odd size.
10" wheels are so much more common and therefore lots of choice with what type of rear tyre you want to run..
The offset is so that the hub and a-arms at the rear do not scrape on the inside of the wheel..

Soul-train,

If you ride tight terrain, I'd stay with the 11" factory off set of 5/3. I know I will most likely be switching back to 11's next time around.

I got a set of 20x11x10r hole shots because I wanted a smaller rear tire for ripping around my homemade track but for trails the stock 11 is your best bet because the 10 inch rims offset makes the bike 49 inches wide (46 is stock I believe).

my 10's with the GBC 22x11x10's measure 51" from outside side wall to outside side wall. I like the ride, and the tire's. But for some reason, someone plants a lot of tree's close together and near the trails where I ride.

Buck when you say it slides better are you sliding with the stock sway bar?

Changing to 10" ?

Cheapest way to gain some width on the rear. 11" rears are overated. 10" rear rims are cheaper ,tyre selection is unlimited. Too wide , most trails in the US are 50" , I can run 8" rears under 50". The only rims that can't do that are 9" rims, there 53". Also a 20x11x10 on a 10x7 rim @12 psi is the same size as a 22x9x11 Kutter.

I have 2 pairs of 22x9x11 Kenda Kutters and a pair of OMF 11" beades, only ones this side of the big pond. Waste of time ,money and energy !

If the width is not a problem for the trails I ride what is the advantage of 10in being wider. I understand the biggest pro is the tire selection.
