Is anyone running 20 inch tires on a 8 inch rim?
What is the reason that everybody is using for the 20 inch tires a 9 inch rim?
The only thing what Im thinking is that a bigger tire easier pulls of a small rim or is there a other problem with such a set up.

Small rim dia the large tire dia = high unsprung weight. plus the tall side wall ain't great for handling either.....

20" rear on a 10" rim is a lighter combo, but most 20" rears are made for 9" rims simply because thats what the majority of the OEM's use for there trail / recreational sport quads
