2016 yz450f rear wheel

Hello everyone! I got a question for someone that knows hub and bearing dimensions on the 2016 yz450f. The question is will any other year model rear wheel fit this bike? I know the 2014 and 2015 will, but I was wanting to find an older, cheaper wheel if possible to throw a paddle on to hit the dunes. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a '14 and have found the same hub part number all the way back to '09. And if a'14-'15' fits a '16 you'd be in the same circle. Is same hub as Yz also, 450 has wider rim than 250 but same hub.

-09-current YZ450F will fit

-10-current YZ250F will fit

No 2t wheels will fit (22mm axle) or the FX wheels which supposedly have a 22mm axel also...

Do by chance know if the axel is the same diameter on those models?

Axel is 25mm on the 09-16 YZ450F

Axel is 25mm on the 10-16 YZ250F

Cool! Thanks you guys!

My guess is that all the wheels will fit, at some modelyears one has to change the bearings,

I have a set of YZ wheels waithing to get into my still-to-buy 2016 WR......

Heres some info I received from a reputable vendor when searching for a set of motard wheels for my 16 WR. Hope this helps someone.


There's a few differences with the YZ/WR. 

  • Wheels
    • 20mm front axle, 22mm rear for ALL WR and YZ up to 2008
    • 20mm fr, 25mm rr for YZ 2009-13
    • 22mm fr, 25mm rr for YZ 2014-16
  • Brakes
    • Rotor the same for all WR250F/450F and YZ250F/450F
    • Caliper the same for all WR and YZ up to 2007.
    • 2008-16 YZ caliper different
