Tire size for WR426

6 posts in this topic

I was looking for a new tire for my WR426. Right now it still has the stock Dunlop 739 110/100x18. I'm looking at getting a Dunlop D952 but it only comes in 120/90x18 or 110/90x18. Any info and pros and cons of either size appreciated.

FWIW, I didn't like going bigger than the stock size.  The tire would rub on the inside of my FMF Q pipe and also hit the chain (properly tensioned), tearing off chunks.  I went up one size from 120/90-18 to 130/80-18 (they size differently, so 120/90 = 110/100 = stock) using Michelin S-12s and I much prefer sticking with the stock size.  I think the bike actually turns better with the stock size.  Admittedly, I also had the suspension done for the 2nd time n (different shop too) when going back to stock size, so that may be the bigger factor for turning.
