18" - 19" rear wheels

Are the hubs, bearings, axle, discs, etc.. etc.. all the same? I would like to go to a 19" rim to take advantage of a larger variety of tires that are available.

It does ride a little rougher and harsher in my opinion off road since you have less side wall. I went up to a 120 width on the 19" for more cushion.

It was just a little tall 120/100-18 and raised the bike up about another 1 inch. But they only have that one size available in 18". I was planning on using the same on my new WR450, but this thing is already tall enough! Then these Pirelli guys come out with EVEN a better looking tire for the sand! The MT410, and only make it in 19" rim size. Geeeezzzz, their killing me!
The only other choice I see that looks half way close in the IRC M5B 130-80 / 18. It looks pretty knarly for the sand and mud.
