Riding pros & cons for a 90/100-21 vs. the 80/100-21 tire

Recommended Posts

I made the mistake of ordering the wrong front tire size for my XR650R. I ordered a 90/100-21 instead of 80/100-21 as I've read in this forums. They were on sale for $29.99. I trail ride in medium to hard terrain. I just don't know if I should return it & get the 80/100 one (hoping they have it at the same price) or keep it. Can anyone instruct me on this?. Thanks in advance.

you now have a front tire that is 10mm wider should be fine you may notice just slightly heavier steering now since it has a wider foot print but at speed i think you may be better off with that slightly wider tire

Thank you guys for your replies. A couple of weeks ago I found this thread in the "offroad riding" section in these forums (the post before the last on that page)http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=714998&page=2. When I went to the site to order the tire, they only had the 90/100-21 size on sale. I just went to their site again to copy the link for you guys, but it seems their are sold out of the 90/100-21 'cause it only shows the 80/100-21 size. Anyways here's the link: http://www.cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?L1=5002&L2=19&L3=230&L4=&item=TUC_31-8053_G
