CRF150f tire/rim size problem


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have had an 07 crf150f for a while now, and am changing my rear tire now. I got a 16 inch rear tire, because that is what the old one was, but on the rim, it says its a 17?

Did they mess up, or did I?

Thanks,

Garrett

Yes, the rim says it's 17,but the tire says it's a 16. I'm getting my tire changed soon, if you don't find any answers I will. Go with the 16" and if you have any trouble take it to the dealer and see if there are any issues. Honda never did a recall so I don't think there should be any issues...

If it was a 17" rim, a 16" tire would be absolutely impossible to put on. I think what you are looking at is that the rim is 1.70 inches wide. I don't have my bike here to look at, but check that out.

Remember, the important part of getting on the tire is to get the bead of the tire that is already installed to drop down in the groove in the center of the rim as much as you can, except for the area you are levering on. This is how you get it loose enough to fit. Also use soapy water to lube it.
