Try a 5.30x17 IRC VE-33. I ran one on my XR350 back in the day. Not great, but pretty good. Lasts a long time. Cheap.

When I had an XR with that 17 inch rim, I also ran the VE-33. I thought that it was the best of the available tires.

Supposedly there is a Metzeler Karoo in that size, and also the very well regarded Conti TKC 80.

Check this.

I used to run 17" Cheng Shin C-760s on my XR350s, pretty decent tire.

I used IRC tires on my bike that had 17" rims. Bridgestone makes some. I don't think this wide enough though (5.1") 110/100-17


Here it is on
