Only Difference i can think of is tyre choice and will slightly raise you rear by half a inch.

Yes you can use a 19 inch back wheel, but...

You will have less choice when it comes to trail riding type tyres, as they really only make MX tyres in 19 inch. A 19 rear tyre does not absorb bumps as well as an 18 so it wont be as comfortable, wont hook up as well over rough ground and you will get more punctures.

Try to stick to an 18 inch if you can.

Thanks freak and suspension matters, he said he would take 300 for them so they will do as a spare set but I will take your advise, much appreciated, I will get a 18inch wheel to match and get some road tyres for the others.. Once again thanks guys for fast response. icon_thumright

At $300 it sounds like good buying.

So one option is to buy an 18 inch rim and spoke kit and get it laced onto your new hub. Depending on the quality of rim and spokes you buy, this will cost you about $300ish.
