    I am looking to purchase a tow pac kit for my GL 1800 and was wondering if there were any advantages or disadvantages I should be aware of between the 8" and 12" wheel configuration?

    Functionally...there are no differences. The biggest difference is the overall appearance of the kit once installed. We sell the 12" kit probably 12 to 1 over the 8" kit.
    On another note, the 12" kit has a MUCH better resale value. For instance, we don't even purchase the 8" kit when someone is selling, simply because they are harder to sell.
    The only other possible difference worth noting is the wheel's spin rate. The 8" wheel will spin MUCH faster to go the same speed than the 12" wheel, this MAY create/cause more wheel bearing wear. This isn't a huge deal, but it is worth noting.
    Hope this helps!
