What is the largest tire size that I can install on a stock rim on a 2000 YZ426F? I currently am running a 120/80-19 Pirelli MT-21. I would like to Install a 130/80 or 140/80 does anyone know who makes a wider 19" tire?

Why?

I ask because of you think you are going to get more traction :cry:

Yes, possibly more traction and stability.

It will ruin your handling. Even a 120 makes the bike handle poor.
