Can I run a 5"wide rear on my YZ450F?

Recommended Posts

I would love a 4.25 but the marchesinis 10 spoke that I want dont come in that size. Any suggestions?

What size rear tire are you running? Did you have to shave it? Can you show me any pics? Thanks.

Pirelli 160 slick rear. Was going to try another brand, but anything 160 or 165 will work. I had to lace thw wheels like the CRF in that I pulled them towards the caliper side of the swingarm to clear the chain.

True the wheel to the one side - doesn't effect drive, handling, or anything. I think most guys do it, anyways. You can tell when you go to the track - guys with tear marks on their chain sides have them trued like normal and have tire all over the inside of their chains. Do it right and it will look normal, tire won't get ripped up and the chain stays clean....
