Can CRF450R tires fit CRF250R?

Recommended Posts

I have two spare sets of CRF450R tires that has over 90% thread left. I wonder if I can at least use the rear tire on the CRF250R.

If you've got one there fit it up and try it. It will be one size bigger but may do the job. Try it and see as it will only cost you 1/2 an hour of your time to fit it.

The front is identical size, the rear is wider. Also, the rear rim on the 250 is narrower than the 450 rim, so when you mount the wider tire the beads will be pressed closer together 'pinching' the tire in more, causing the tread to have a narrower, taller, more rounded profile than normal. May work ok, may not...most likely less traction will be the result, as well as feeling like you have a slightly smaller rear sprocket on.
