theres a lot of info...

but to answer your question i prefer an 8 inch wheel...they're lighter, cheaper, have more of a range of tires it'll fit, and you can air down without issue on an 8 rim.

Theres a lot more of a chance for the tire to slip off when airing down on a 12.5" tire on a 10" rim.

id only run a 10 if i was doing a 13.5" or wider
