What size tire do you guys usually run?

I run Dunlop 952's and usually run the 120's, but I got a 110 on at the moment and I don't know if I like it or not.

One thing I cam tell is that there seems to be a lot more spinning, slipping and sliding going on now compared to the 120's. The 110 seems a lot more rounder too, which wouldn't help. I think I will be sticking to the 120's.

I think on a stock(ish) bike, there wouldn't be too much of a problem running a 110 though, and would benefit from the smaller size.

I just think it would be interesting to hear some other views.

I have a Pirelli MT18 120 rear right now, which does well. Still spins, but you gotta realize, a WR450 has a ton of power, so it's gonna spin anything you put on there!! I had a teraflex 150 which was awesome, but I have it dual sported, so it didn't do too well on the pavement. Overall, I like the 120 rear tire the most. Suits everything I do with it!!:worthy:

I really liked and still run on my 250 Metezler MC5

Cheap as hell from motorcycle superstore. I would compare to the TT store.

I ran a 120/100 on the 450. 110/100 on the 250

I like 130's or 140's when I am mostly climbing. I go with the 110's or 120's in the mountains, I like the smaller stature as I am short.

130 / 140 in euro or jap size?

How much of a difference do you notice between the different sizes?

120/100

I havn't rode mine yet, but i upped my stock to a 120 also, im tall, and i thought any higher would be a help, and it's wider for more tractions, IM sure the 450 has enough power to turn it over........

Our stock is a Dunlop 130! Even on the wr250! :worthy: Overkill.......

Dunlop 952 120/90

I run a 130 M12 and love it for out here in the mud

What terrain and what tire pressure? MY 952 was not so great over 13lbs. At 10-12 it was good. I think the rubber is so hard in this tire that air pressure has to be reduced.

I did not like the front 952 so well. I felt it was a little slick. Still, to be fair, I put the 952 on after a 756rr......For me, nothing touches a 756rr in front.

I hear ya. I do run 12psi in my tires. :worthy:

The terrain we're talking about is the harder stuff at the moment. When the rains come (any time now...) it will be slop!

Hahaha, It would be nice to get some race rubber on the bike! :D

WR4540

I just installed M12s both front and rear. Rear is a 130... fantastic tire :worthy:

I run 12lbs in the rear on my 952 120/90. I ride in desert terrain (rocks, soft sand, rocks, deep sand, rocks, medium and hardpack dirt, and more rocks)

I am pissed that I now have to small dents in my rims. I wonder if an extra lb of pressurie would have helped?

I also run 756 on the front, but not the rr.

Get the widest you can purchase that is specifically suited to the terrain you ride most often!

120-140 or 5.10"

. . . and YES, the 450 can turn it over quite easily!! :worthy:

I don't think you are going to stop that mate. Mine are a bit dented too!

There is handling benefits of going to a smaller tire. The front end doesn't push as much, it does seem easier to move the bike around. You also get the benefit of faster acceleration and response too.

I just cranked up the power on my bike though, the 110's now seem too small for me. I still think they would be of benefit on the "usual modded" WR.

are the stock tires good,, 06 wrf450 ?

mine wore out real fast, and i found they never had great grip

We got the 130/90/18 Dunlop 908. Very crap tyre that doesn't last long and also gave no grip.
