You probably have the tires mounted on a 10x8 wheel (10" diameter, 8" wide). If you want a wider wheel for the 22x11-10 tire size, go with a 10x10. If these are trail tires, I would stay with the 10x8 wheels. If you go wider you have a MUCH higher chance of damaging the wheels because the sidewalls of the tires can't protect them anymore.

I am guessing that you are assuming the wheels that you have are 11" wide and that is incorrect.

You are correct with tire size - 22x11-10. The stock wheels are actually a 10x8.5 (10" diameter by 8.5" wide) but everyone refers to them as 10x8.

What tires are you wanting to put on wider wheels (the make/model)?

They don't anymore. They used to but they were made for a 24x11-10 SKat Trak paddle tire to balloon it out to a wider footprint.

You can't use a 10x11 wheel with a 22x11-10 dirt tire. The widest you could go would be a 10x10 and even that is not advisable for dirt/trails.

Those tires are not to wide for the wheel. Thats how they come from the factory. In case you didn't know the 22 is how tall the tire is, 11 is how wide it is and the 10 is your wheel diameter. Leave it alone, it's fine.

Yes, and you need your tire width to be wider than your wheel width. The exception is Skat Trak sand paddles but those are buffed and will allow the tire to stretch out to the wheel width because the tire casing is so thin and, for the most part, you don't run the risk of bumping the exposed edge of the wheel against something.

Right from the Douglas website.

Why should the tire be wider than the wheel?
When running a wider wheel than tire, the edge of the wheel is exposed to direct contact with obstacles. For off road applications, run the tire at least 2 inches wider than the wheel. The tire bulge is normal and will act as a “bumper” for the rim lips.

No, there isn't any 10x10 wheels made with the KFX700 rear bolt pattern. What most people do is buy Honda rear hubs and get the 10x10 4/110mm wheels that fit those Honda hubs. The other option is to buy the 10x10 Honda pattern wheels and have them drilled to the KFX700 4/137mm rear bolt pattern. If you do that, you will have to cut off the little lips on the stock hubs to make them work. That is what I did with my 10x10 wheels but I drilled them myself with a jig that I had a machine shop make for me. It is a 3/8" thick piece of steel that has the 4/110 Honda pattern and the 4/137 KFX700 pattern both drilled in it. I just bolt the 4/110 pattern to the wheel and then drill through the holes in the jig for the 4/137 pattern.

I was told by a local machine shop, they would widen a steel wheel for me, but not an aluminum one....this was about ten years ago on an offroad only VW buggy. They said the aluminum would have to be annealed properly after it was welded and they weren't set up for that. If you find a shop to do it, I would think BIG CHING$$$$$$$!!! Ed3

OK guys i did think about that but i don't have a TIG welder but I'm about to bay one so i can do that very simple i can just go and get the aluminum pipe slice it to the size that i need and slice the wheel i half and weld it together

the biggest problem is i need to find a big chap saw to make clean cut
but i can go back to my work place they build big semi trailers :D

this is my next project i will keep you posted :p

Why are you still thinking of getting overly wide wheels for your 22x11-10 tires? If they are for dirt/trails, you want the tire to be wider than the wheel to protect it.

I have a BUNCH of tires at my house, I will get you some example pics of 22x11-10 on 8" wide wheels, 22x12-9 on 9" wide wheels and 22x11-10 on 10" wide wheels so you can see what I am talking about.
