'81 DR500 - rear tyre metric size

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Standard Rear tyre is 4.60-18 - I know there is limited clearance for big tyres .. what is the best Metric size tyre that will fit without fouling.

 

thanks

A month late here, but I slipped a bridgestone 5.10 on my 250 no problem. Had to set it far back in the adjustment, and I had already ground away all the unused bracketry on the swingarm. You 500 could surely benefit from more rubber on the ground. I think it is an M52. After a year, bald as Kojack.
