My second rear 756 seems to be wearing out even faster than the original one. Thinking about the 952 but don't see the same size for the 18in rear wheel. What size do I get?

110/90 works great & wears better.

I have the 110/90 on my TT-R. WR 450fs could get away with the 120

The 110 is a little bit smaller (less round) than the 120, the knobs sit a little flatter.
Having tried both the 110 and 120, I can say that the 110 is good enough. The 120 is a bit heavier, but a bit more cushier too. I seemed to get a bit more accelleration out of the 110, I put this down to less rotational mass. Grip from the 120 and 110 is near identical.

Sorry Turismo but I dont agree. I have found that I get much better traction with a 120 than a 110. The bike feels like it is reving harder/quicker with the 110 because of excess wheel spin, IMO. I think you are right about the 120 being heavier but I dont think the difference will matter on a 450.

I switched to the 952 rear recently. No complaints so far.
