hi All

I have a 08 wr450 Im racing.

Currently with 4.25 rear rim, can I use a 5inch rim with 160 tire on this bike?

Hello mate not 100% but im pretty sure you will have clearance issues with the chain with a 160 and 5 inch rim, maybe offsetting the rim would help?

if the swingarm is like a YZ you can. The chain will be close, as it is on all yamaha supermoto bikes - but just run the Graves chain block and you will have no problems

i run a 160 on a 5" marchesini. using the Graves block the chain doesnt touch my tire, and i only have about 1/8" clearance using a non o-ring chain

that setup looks well tight :banana:, I run 150 tire (with block too) and that leaves enough room for o-ring chain and some space to the tire, yes the chain block fits WR
