Dual sport tires on 17inch Rims?

Recommended Posts

Like Noble mentioned we can hook you up with so much traction on the rear you won't be able to handle it. Terra Flex makes a 17 incher. Nothing for the front though. I can't think of anything in a 17 you could use with that monster rear. I'm sorry but it's not a common knobby size for front ends. prairiedawg :)

Has anyone ever put a 19 inch x 3.5 inch front rim with a TT style class "C" tire, to go with a 4.5 inch motard-style rear rim, that seems like a good all-round compromise. I know that used to be the standard for most flat-track & TT bikes. I was thinking of trying this setup, I would think that there would a reasonable selection for a goodyear class "C" tire that would work. A 19 inch front wheel would keep the front end height low as well.

You could leave the stock 18 on the rear and build a front 19, all kinds of tire options there!!!! From dirt track to full on street tires. :)
