Regarding 18" wheels that fit your bike, I don't know, sorry. Others will surely chime in. You also might try posting this in the vintage forum.

What I do know is that my 1984 XR500R also has a 17" rear wheel and there are some good quality 17" off-road tires still available. Check Bike Bandit, Cyclemart and Motorcycle Superstore. Hope this helps.

what about getting a swing arm and everything off a newer bike and then you could have an 18" rear with a disc brake? I don't think it would be too much work to find one that would work.

thanks guys, yes i have thought of the swing arm/break but at this point I just do not want to sink that much into my first dirt bike.
