Hey everyone,

New to the forum, I was looking for some opinions of 4.25" rims vs 5"? I am buying a set from motoxindustries and I can either get 4.25 or 5. What is the difference with the two? From what I've seen from looking around is that smaller rim equals better handling but bigger means you can put more power down? Also will a 5" even fit properly on a 2015 ktm 690 enduro R with out any major mods? Thanks for any input

4.25" may give a slight quicker turn-in but tire choice is limited. 5" may feel slower but tire choice is plentiful.

Pretty sure you'd be fine with a 5" on the KTM. My buddy runs one on his converted enduro and there is plenty of room.
