what's the worst that can happen by putting to large a tire on narrow rim??

i am imagine the worst that can happen is hurting/maiming/killing some innocent soul that had nothing to do wih me not putting the recommended tire size/aspect ratio/rim width and types together..ie me getting into an accident because the tires popped off their bead and deflated suddenly
.


I saw your rim_tire chart but I had to ask :)
well,,this tire chart is not the bible,,,but it does run pretty close to conventional wisdom and wheel/rim and tire manufacturers recommendations....there are reasons why low aspect ratio tires need wider rim widths...for stability and not having the tire tuck under when cornering....

FYI what could work are std 100% aspect ratio tires like a 110/100 or A 150/90 OR 100 FROM 70% 0N DOWN YOU'LL NEED EVER WIDER RIMS TO HAVE THINGS WORK...

ps..you still didn't tell me the intended use or rationale for attempting this set-up

I don't know if this is the place for this but...

My brother has a stock 2006 950 SM and wants to find some 50/50 DS tires for it for when we go for some dirt and gravel road rides.

Any idea what is out there that would fit the stock rims?

Thanks

well that's a tough question to answer mainly because they are few and far between....

right off the bat ya have Avon's sm Distanzias 120/70x17 front and 150 or160/60x17 rear,,,they have chunky big knobs but more street oriented

i am inclined to go mix and match tires ..ie BWOE Brigestone has some neat 50-50 tires with semi aggressive tread patterns,,,but in rear tire size of say 130/80x17 flip the rotation of the tire and it'll work just fine up front on your 3.5x17 rim..

hope that get's ya started

a second set of off raod touring wheels

Hi Woody

I have a 2001 KTM 640 LC4 supermoto (European model) and have been searching and searching trying to find out whether it is possible to buy or build an off-road set of wheels for this bike. Everyone seems to want to go to more street orientated wheels but there is little info about switching the other way.

Can you just build up some LC4 Adventure wheels, pop them on and off you go? Is it possible to have two sets of wheels that are interchangeable without needing to change brake callipers? I've read somewhere that the spokes hit the calliper... My mind has turned to mush from days spent on the net trying to find out some more info so I cant remember where I read that.

The reason I ask is a friend is planning a trip through Morocco in his Landie and I would love to tag along on my bike but the sm wheels would be a nightmare in the sand ...

Cheers
Trevor

New Wheels

I had a chance to try out my new wheels yesterday. I will post better pictures soon (this is just a cell pic) but I wanted to say how beautiful they are and that the handling is nothing short of amazing!! Thanks Woody and thanks Zach.

Mike

new Woody's wheels on my KTM SER

Woody told me it would make a big difference in the handling of my SER and boy is he right. I just converted from the stock 21/18 wheels to a new set of Woody's 19/17. I'd read all the posts and even went to his plant in Denver last month as I was passing through town to see his operation and especially how they seal the wheels.

I'm a natural skeptic and couldn't believe that a simple change in wheel size could make that much of a difference in braking and road handling. I put these 19/17 wheels on yesterday and did a 100 mile loop this morning on some of the best roads in Texas. Amazing difference. The bike feels like it is a super-moto-dirt-bike on steroids. I'm an old guy but with this change I'm riding like I did several years ago.

Don't want to sound like I'm a shill for Woody's but all the claims he has made about the difference in ride-ability by changing wheels is no B.S. It's all true. Try it for yourself. I'm damn glad I did. By the way, look in the flea market if you want to buy a set of 21/18 used wheels. I just put mine up for sale.

Hey Woody, can you point us to any of your customers who've fitted 19/17s to a 640 in any denominations Adv, SMC, Enduro or SXC? There seems to be a bit of a lack when searching.

Well I was hoping all those 640 customers would all be stored up in that grey matter of yours for instant recollection! Mind you, if your brain is anything like mine that's a tall ask!

There was a guy over in Thumpers now that asked the question and appears keen but said he couldn't find any 640s with 19/17 setup. You might wish to chip in over there.

So Woody or anybody, is there in the colective wisdom any knoledge regarding de 640s 19/17 set up?

I am planing to buy a 2.50x19" and a 4x17" rim and some spokes and rebuild the wheels on the oem hubs.
Is that doable?

In the other hand is the 640Adv happy with it?
How is the bike behavior?

cheers
