Wheel and tire width are usually dictated by the weight they have to bear. Our XX has a lot of accessories, and carries a lot of weight over the rear axle (spare tire, winch, rack, etc). With a full load of fuel, driver and passenger we have 1062 lbs on the front axle and 1533 on the rear axle. My knee-jerk reaction is that you wouldn't benefit enough from 10's to deal with any fitment issues and the huge increase in scrub radius.

Don't do it, bad choice.

These wheels are a very high quality and the bead lock ring is very thick. Way nicer than some of the China rims out on the market.

Nice thanks for the pics. I may just end up using these 10" for another set of paddles/front dune tires.

+1 to what Hollywood posted. I'm curious as to before and after impressions.

If the XX steering effort could be tuned like many of today's cars, I would opt for a little less boost. Those wheels should accomplish that, but also add a whole lot of kick-back on anything other than an ultra smooth or soft surface (like sand).

Decided against this setup on the wheels. Found a deal on some DWT Sector beadlocks in 15x8 and 15x11 for a lightweight sand setup! Thanks
