EXC 500 tire size

Recommended Posts

I’m wondering what size tires everyone is using. My 500 only sees dirt, the front is a 90 and the rear is a 120. I’m wondering if I should go slightly bigger. I ride a lot of mud, rocks, roots, double track, logging roads and some single track. 

Cheers.

Totally depends on the tire...

Going to a better tire for your terrain will make more of an improvement than 10mm more width. That, and the size stamped on the sidewall is just an approximation. One manufacturer's 140 might be the same size as another's 120.
