I have a 2009 WR450 and I need to order a set of more aggresive (harder) desert tires.

I am going to purchase Michelin, but do not know what to buy and what size.

Any body out there that could help, let me know!

Thank you! :thumbsup:

80/100-19 i think is the stock front and go with a 120 18 in the rear

I've had good luck with the M12 front and S12 rear.

why michelin? Many guys in the desert swear by the maxxis desert IT for the rear. Either that or the Dunlop 739 for the rear.

For the front, I personally like either the Dunlop 756 or the Pirellie scorpion pro.

I agree. Go with Maxxis and save some $$!
