Tire / wheel dilema xr650r

Recommended Posts

So I ride my xr daily to work and back and it currently has dunlop d606 tires on it. I want to put something else on for the street to save the dunlops for when I go to the desert. I was either thinking some supermoto style wheels like these

Or a stock size set of wheels with some shinko 705 tires. I know the tires that come on the supermoto wheels are probly shit but I'm more concerned with not wearing out the dunlops in 3 months and having some traction on the street when it gets a bit wet. Any ideas? I tried finding a set of stock wheels but there like gold I guess. Thanks guys, here's my xr :)

I had a couple of sets of the 705's on my XR650R. Loved them!!! Great mileage and you can scrape the pegs in the turns.

I found a better deal then the fleabay set, these are warp 9 wheels with michelin pilot tires for $1149, discs, sprocket, mounted and ballanced included.
