06 wr450 tire question..

6 posts in this topic

Wanna put new tires on my 06 450. I really like the michelins my gas gas has on it, but the michelins do not come in a 110/100 18 like what is on it and that is the same size the manual shows.

Michelin only offers a 120/90 18 or a 130/80 18. Any thoughts as to which one would be better ?

thanks in advance

asked the same question not so long ago...

The Michelin tire sizes are different....

The 130-80-18 is the same as the stock 110-100-18

the 120-80-18 michelin is a little skinner, and the 140-80-18 is a little wider.

did a quick search, must have missed that. the 300 gg has a 130 80 18 that looks just like the 110 100 18 but you never know...

have you had s12's before ? How did they wear ?

the m12's have been on my 300 almost 2 yrs, we don't get to ride as often as I would like. I think the 450 is going to harder on tires.....
