XR80 front wheel/tire

Recommended Posts

Picked up an 03 xr80 as a pit bike and to chase my 4yr old on his pw50. The front tire is bald and it seems that no one makes a 2.5x16 tire. Anyone found anything decent or is there a 17” wheel that will fit? If so, from which bike?

They used to be about $20.  You can do a stem swap and run TTR125 fork.  They use a 17" wheel.  Also, there are a couple years in the 80's, where a CR80 17" wheel works.  I forgot the exact year, but I ran one once, and it was a huge difference over a 16" with that IRC tire.  A 17" wheel lets you run a wide varieties of tires.
