Just a quick question. I have placed a 23" front wheel on my bike and was wanting to put a 280mm rear wheel. But I see that the largest is 18x10 or 18x10.5. Why is the 109 not able to do a 20x10? Really not interested in personal opinions on looks just would like to know mechanically or structurally why it would not work... Thanks

I've thought about doing a 20x10 rear, but I think it'd rub the front of the swing arm. I don't know if the aftermarket swing arms would allow for the bigger wheel, but not on a stock arm.

Well i dont think the swingarm would be a issue since whats affecting it is the width(the 10" or 10.5") its the height that he's asking about (the 20") thats a good question though..i have a 280 on a 10inch rim and it BARELY fits width wise but height i think the top of the tire would rub the bottom of the rear fender. but there has to be a reason as to why one hasnt been made yet.
