Yeh - who knows what bozo decided to run 130 rears on the OZ WRs, but they're rubbish and way too big.

Drop down to at least a 110 or even a 100, even if you are on the road a bit it wont make too much difference. Hooking up is more a function of the tread pattern than the width with these type of tyres - I think - and wouldnt go wider unless you really have to.

The Michellin tyre on the 03s is just a big balloon, waiting to pop on the first decent rock you hit - I learnt the hard way, 30kms into a ride near Mt Hotham put a 50mm tear in it!! The 04s come with a Dunlop enduro tyre on (still a 130), but better than the Michellin. Pirelli makes the best on/off street legal tyre from what I've seen, I think its the MT21 from memory but dont quote me.

Dont expect any of them to hook up like a motocross tyre will; I run a Bridgestone ED12 knobby and just try to rid a bit sensibly the brief times that I'm on the bitumen.

i think they have to have 130s on the back for adr compliance (dont know why) i went to a 100 but i just get to much wheelspin might try a 120 or 110
