Burt and I both had 17" front and rear (Supermotard version WR250X). Seemed fine to me but Burt has much more experience in the sand and he thought the 17"x 4.6" worked better on the sand than the taller tires. Stayed on top of the sand better. It is a much wider tire though. Maybe the other guys have more experience with different size tires....[/QUOTE
Thanks, those smaller wider tires looked good, it's funny when i had a V-strom with 17 rear and 19 front everyone wanted 21" front rims, now with a DR and 17 rear 21 front everyone wants 19" front rims. Are Motorcyclists ever happy? I'm retired now on a low budget so I will stick with stock for now. Great trip guy's I envy you.
