18" sumo wheels?

Recommended Posts

Anybody leave the stock rim on the back and have a 18" front rim laced to the factory hub? Are there any tires for 18" rims suited for motard or DS action?

That's what I plan to do this winter with my 400. After 2 sets of 17" motard wheels I just don't think they look right on long suspension travel bikes. 18" or even 19" just look more proportionate (IMO).

Take a look at the 450's converted to dirt track, they run 18/18 tire setups and it looks good.

Thats my plan too...for me the 17 looks too small on front. Have to find someone qualified to lace. I've done mx bikes but.....
