Ok guys just bought a WR450 today, i need to know what is my best tire size for street tarding. I know 17 inch rims but what is common front size and most common rear size. I see a lot of threads about chain rub and i dont want to deal with that. I want to slap on a set of wheels and tires and go. Can someone answer this for me?

Thanks,
John

I did my SM setup on my 2007 WR for about $1,000:

Warp9 racing 17" wheels. 17x4.25 rear wheel with a 150/60 tire and 17x3.50 front with a 120/70 tire. The Conti SM tires are about $200 for the pair. Very minimal chain rub.



Or you can get Maxxis ProMax street tires for your stock 21" and 18" wheels for only $120, and still have as much fun like I did on my 2003 WR. Save your money, go this route, and improve your riding skills. These tires are awesome, and provided good treadwear and confidence in the corners, here is a link:
