They also make a 110-100-18 rear tire for "250 and open class bikes" according to a website that sells them [ www.motorace.com ]
If I were you I would call or email them and ask if they fit your bike. Or look in your manual.
Let us know what you find. The info on the website makes their tires sound tempting!

What size did you use? How would you compare the traction your Teraflex had to other dirt tires?

There is actually 3 sizes. But that is now the only 'big' one. The one my buddy got was one of the smaller ones with the more normal tread pattern. Complete and total junk. One ride in the Pioneer Mountains and it was so chunked out you wouldnt believe it. I had one of the USA made big ones with the funky tread pattern. It did hook up unreal in almost anything. In fact it hooked up too well in some situations, like hill climbs when some wheel spin is nice. It didnt wear very well at all for me. Most guys that saw mine couldnt believe it only had 4 or 5 rides on it, it was thrashed. Usually those ones wore very very well. What I am getting at is I have no experience with the China made big ones, just to clear that up. What the hell, give one a try.
I have the 150 series tire which is the only size

the same u.s. tire that was advertised as a 140 is now made in china and they now label it as a 150. I think its probley because of the lack of steel belts now but I could be wrong. Please let me know if they email you back with regards to it fitting or not, Im going on a huge 3 dayer in 2 weeks with an est. 200 miles or riding and I have to get a tire before I go, it will be a good test run for whatever I buy and I will post the results when I return... Thanks again guys for all the input.
You guy's can still get the USA 140/80-18 Tera-Flex at this web site www.mandhtires.com I called them the other day and they do have them.

The new 150/80-18 sell for around $65. The new tires are junk!
Look what one ride on the new 150 size does:
