I just bought a 2019 Yamaha YZ450FX and want to put on some sumo wheels. I have a deal on some Warp 9 switch forged wheels, 17x3.5 front and 17x4.25 rear or get some Alpina Tubeless spoke wheels, 17x3.5 front and 17x5.0 rear (only size they carry). I will be doing some street and light off-road, possibly some jumping off some decks on a rare occasion. Common sense says the Alpina tubeless spoke wheels will be better because the spokes absorb impact better than a forged wheel? As far as sizing, can I fit a 17x5.0 on the rear on my 2019 yamaha yz450fx? I want to be able to switch to dirt wheels easily, would it be better to go with a 17 x 4.25 for the rear? Are Alpina wheels reliable? From what I hear if you have any issues with Alpina wheels you will have to ship it to Italy which can be expensive and time consuming. I would appreciate any feedback!
