1983 xr350r rear tire

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a 4.60x17 inexpensive rear tire for the xr350r . It seems to be hard to find a tire in that size for the old pig. Anybody know of one. It has a cheng shin c-755 on it now but when I look it up they dont offer a 17inch tire anymore.

I ended up having to go with a 130/90 tire. The only issue is the plastic chain guard. I ended up taking it off as it was starting to wear the plastic away in a little triangle area. If you find a decent stock sized tire, I wouldn't mind knowing for future reference, however this new tire size does me well, especially since the majority of the riding I do is sandy. Good luck!

Kenda K270

but why do you NEED the old inch size?

what difference does it make if the actual size fits?

no wonder,

your 130/90 actually is wider than a 5.10

well a 130 is 130mm wide, a 5.10 126mm

120/90 about equals a 4.60

120mm vs 116mm
