Rear tire size, 110 or 120?

Recommended Posts

Been using a rear 120 since I installed the big bore, but thinking I might go back down to 110 and see if it handles differently/better? 

What are most YZ riders running on the back, a 110 or 120. 

I would think out in the Dez a bigger tire is great, but single track, a smaller rear tire might be better. 

Is it even noticeable???

Thanks

The narrowere the tire, the easier it will be to lean into a corner, and less rotating mass and unsprung weight. A wider tire will give you more grip in a straight line, but more mass and unsprung weight. Take your pick...

110 for me... the 120 feels really heavy on the two stroke and makes dropping and leaning into a rut a task. I do like them on deep sand tracks though.

I always liked the 120s for a big pad of traction back there but you notice the weight.

I think all the cool guys are runnin 110s until they come out with a 115.
