I can not think of any pros because you would have less traction, and would be hell in the mud or soft dirt. Just by looking at the different tire sizes, it is apparent at how much traction will be lost.

well the tires are the same size 110/90-19, im looking at buying a 04 yz250f wheel to put a paddle tire on it. i would be running a 110/90-19 10 paddle.

to me it seems like with the 2.15 rim it would allow the tire to smush down more and have more flexibility where as with the 1.85 rim it seems like it wouldn't allow it to flatten out as much cause it being pinched, am i thinking on the right track???

well with a paddle tire thats a different story. If that is all that you will be using it for then I suppose that you can get away with it. Simply because the scoops will still be deep. It will make the tire harder including sidewalls so there will be less give, but then again you will se a difference in how wide the scoops on the paddles will be.
