quick question, Would an 07 WR450F rear rim/axle/etc... fit into an 08 yz450f? My yz's rear tire is totally bald and I really want to ride this weekend. Buying a new tire would be my last option, but I do have an 07 WR450F from which I could borrow a complete tire/rim/axle. Would that work?

Yes it will. The only difference between the two is the rim size, the hubs are the same.

Thanks for the info, I changed the tires last night. Also installed a set of unabiker rad guards while I was at it. The bike is ready to rock this friday, if I can get a 1/2 day off from work.
