Wheel size for SM Lites

Recommended Posts

sorry if this is a duplicate question, but i scanned the posts and did a search too w/ no luck.

QUESTION: What is the best rear rim size for a 250F supermoto bike? Do the lites run 5.0x17 or something smaller?

Thanks, fellas!

Some bikes have swingarm and clearance advantages over the others, but start with 3.5 x 17 front and 4.25 x 17 rear. If a specific bike is listed, someone with that bike will hop on and tell you how much clearance is there to work with.

Cool. Good luck with that. Personally would go with the CRF due to the fact there are way more parts readily availabe for it..... :banghead:

I use the 4.25 rear and 3.50 front on my crf 250 and it works very well. Also as you go bigger the more rubber you have to turn and takes more ponies.
