Tire selection help needed for 17" supermoto wheels on KTM 450EXC

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I could use some help with tire selection

I have a set of 17" supermoto rims that I want to use with my 2005 KTM 450 EXC.  

The back rim is 4.25" and the front rim is 3.5" wide.

I want to put a Kenda K270 510-17 (5.1" ) on the back and a K270 4.60-17 (4.6") on the front.

Will there be issues using my 4.25" rear rim with a 5.1" wide tire?  Would I be better off using the 4.6" wide tire on the front and back? 

Thanks in advance.
