Did Suzuki make the DRZ SM rear rim on purpose size 4.50 so people have to buy an OEM part for twice as much? For some reason I cant find a Excel hoop in size 4.5. Only 4.25 and 5. Its frustrating! I dented my OEM rear wheel and I`m looking to replace the hoop. Any suggestions?

That's fine.

It's only 0.25" different.. or 1/8" taken off both sides of the rim.
What would be better? the 4.25 or 5?

Whichever one makes you happier.

I'd say 4.25", in case you get into chain clearance issues.

5" rim is going to need a 160mm tire.

Would a quarter of an inch be noticeable for handling reasons?

If you have to ask, no.

I doubt most people, even people who have been racing, would be able to notice it back to back if that's the only thing you changed on the bike.
