3 posts in this topic

Hi Guy's

An XR 600 owning mate of mine wants to know how big can he go up on his rear tyre? he currently runs a 120 section AVON AM24 (road bias tyre).

Whats the biggest (road bias)tyre he can put in? 130 ! 140 !??.

Thanks, from the UK :)

I'm not sure about street tires but I ran a 140-80x18 dirt tire on my XR600. I ran the Avon Gripsters too and the rear was a 120 something and looked thin. I would try a 140.

Cheers dude :) My bike (KLX650) has a 17 x 2.50 std alloy rim and I run a 130 section Gripster.

The XR rim is only 2.15 & my mate thinks he might not be able to fit anything over 120.

Your right the 120 Gripster does look thin !

He likes the Gripster tyre and would really like another but bigger :D
