Hello quaders!
I ride a yfz 450, and I need some information on tire sizes? I ride on MX tracks that are sometimes alittle muddy or very hard, but most of the time they are soft and perfect. With that said could you guys please tell me the reasons of running small vs. medium size front tires, give examples of specific tire sizes for the front and rear, and post pics of your quads showing me what specific sizes look like on a quad. Thanks

most people run 20" (or 19") fronts, and 18" rears, its pretty much the norm for any type of MX racing, the shorter height will improve acceleration and bottom end, and shorter tires help with handling characteristics, and since there is very little need for ground clearance on the groomed MX tracks, people run as short of a tire as they can.

NEVER use a 19" front unless you are running a mini quad. I have raced the nationals for the past 5 years and always use 18" tires on 8" wheels. Fronts, use 20"
