I am in the process of tarding an 05 YZF250 and was wondering if the 160 Dunlop rear will fit on the back. I have a 3.5 front and 5" rear Excel wheelset off my WR, so I just need to figure out which tires will fit on these rims for this bike.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When I ran my '05 YZ250F I ran the 17x3.5 front and both the 17x5 and 17x4.25 rears with 160's (Pirelli and Mich, can't speak to the Dunlop specifically). No fittment issues with the 5. Found that the 4.25 gave better turn in and the 5 was unnecesary as the bike didn't have enough power to warrant it.

I've got the same setup on my '06 YZ250F now. Works just as well.
