I currently have the Dunlop 120/90 18 rear tire that came with my 2015 WR450F (the tire totally sucked) and it is on it's last leg. I am currently looking at replacing it with a MAXXIS Desert IT. Is it possible and is there any advantage/disadvantage to going with a 120/100 18? Thanks.

Yes it's possible and no there's not any real advantage. You'll potentially have about 6mm more sidewall/12mm (1/2 inch) greater tire height, depending on how the Maxxis measures out.
