I've seen folks run a 2.75 and 3.0" front rim on a 150RB. I can't find a 3" anywhere, and was measuring about and it looks like a 3.5" would fit between the forks.

Anyone try running a 3.5" front rim on a CRF150RB?

I swear I've seen it before but I can't find it again and wanted some input before dumping the money to try it.

I've been running a Dunlop GP125 on the front of my 100 on a 2.5" rim. It works but I've noticed I'm using up all the front and leaving some rear unused.

Hmm interesting. That does make for a rather pointy wheel profile. I'm not sure how well that would work on a road course.

I am going to throw a 115 on my front 2.5 on my crf100 to see how that works.

From looking at your pic it would seem a 3.0 would be about perfect, problem is I can't find a 3.0 anywhere...

125 slicks are made for 2.5 front and 3.5 rear. The 2.75 fronts are easier to find, the 2.5 are always on backorder for some reason.

The 125 slicks work great.
