2.75-21 tire selection

Recommended Posts

Not much of selection I should say. I'm wanting to get a better tire up front before a fall ride and there isn't much in this size for off road. Would a 80/90-21 fit? Pirelli Mt-21 comes in this size. Everything else jumps up to 90 and 100.

Thanks for any help.

Going on a crf230l btw.

Rim measured 2.2 and it looked like the boots on the forks are 4" apart.

An 80 would be 3.15...

I'm about 99% sure that any "normal" 21 inch dirt bike or dual sport tire will fit no problem.

These should all work.

3.00x21

80/90-21

80/100-21

90/90-21

wwm,

your front rim size is a 21x1.6 let me know if the Pirelli 80-90-21 fits on the rim. I know it will fit between the forks.I would love to put a wider tire on myself

Just found on a Pirelli fit guide that 1.6 is minimum for the 80 and 1.85 is minimum for the 90....so 80/100 should fit.

Now the back tire I want only comes in 110/100-18 and it will be replacing a 120/80-18.....according to my figures that is .5 inch taller but should work.

The MT21 comes in 120/80 but I was wanting the new model of the MT18. It's the XMCH. I think I will go with this one on front also.. It has better reports for woods riding then the MT21

Thanks for the responses!

The /100 series tires are measured differently than the /80 and /90 ones.

I think the width of the /100 is measured at the tire carcass and the others are measured at the outside part of the knobs.

Oh...thanks for the info. Guess I should look into 100/100 or else just stick to the Pirelli mt-21 120/80 that is stock size.
