Question 1975 Yamaha DT125 project: tires first (help / advice)

After a day on dirtbikes, wife decided to sell the scooter in favor of an older/small bike for neighborhood errands.
So yesterday we picked up a 75 DT125 (under 2K mi!).
It needs new tires ... my trouble is the front size: 3.00 x 19 - and I'm not having an easy time finding new tires in that size.
Anybody know if a 2.75x19 will fit with no issues/problems?

The rear is 4.10x18 and I figure I could also have a 4.00x18 mounted (right?); I've found Shinkos d-p in both of these sizes, so I figure I'm good there.

Thanks!

A 2.75-19 and a 4.00-18 will work just fine.

Shinko 241 would probably work well on that bike.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

I got the Shinkos 244 ... I was on the fence between the two ... 241's most likely next time!
