i have 10x8 for my rears, i have been riding on an mx track, so the smaller rim= more side wall which is nice for side corner bite, (and incase your wondering, the 18's in back are awsome, i love them) and my rims have the reinforcement ring in them, which they have held up nice for my buddies and i, even with the abuse of the track.

It would be nice if I could get free shipping up to canada, but they are only for the U.S. Maybe I'll just have to move!! LOL

I have t 9 rims both regular and rolled edges, they dont like rocks...thats all I have to say. I bent them hitting stuff, rode them home flat, hammered them back and they sill hold air. I guess thats ok, but Id rather not have to run flat. My next set of rims will be ITP baja but I will weld the rings in myself. So far my sock rims have held up the best.

rings on the bajas are rolled in, I am afraid of them getting loose so when I get mine, Im gona hit em with a welder. I think people are afraid of the welder geting the rims hot and warping, but Im not really worried.

if you weld the entire circumfrence, i might be worried a bit. Not enough to stop me from doing it though. I would weld four inch or two long beads opposite of each other if it worries you too much.
