Michelin T63 tires size

3 posts in this topic

I'm riding a 450F 2007. I plan to buy a new tire michelin T63 front and rear. I will use it for road, around town and off road. In the shop where I plan to buy them only have these sizes:

110 / 80-18 58S T63 R

120 / 80-18 62S T63 R

80 / 90-21 48S T63 F

90 / 90-21 F 54s T63

What size tires to choose and why? Thank you for your response. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Larger size on both front and rear.

Why? The bike can easily handle them, and the T63's I bought a few years ago for my XR650L were very small compared to other tires and the front at an 80 size looked like it should be on a mini bike: very little contact patch, and not a lot of sidewall to absorb bumps.
