:notworth:

they do a 120/70x19 that matches the front
indeed, so they do, must have missed that the other day but i'm looking to go a bit wider - 130 - anyway since i'm planning to put on a 250 mm wide all black front end

Just for clarification,

Are you guys saying a 260 Rear tire (replacing the stock 240) fits the OEM rim without any other mods?

But if you want bigger than 260 then you need a new/bigger Rim, right?

I already have noticed that small pebbles and rocks can be picked up and scraped under the front/rear fender until they're spit out in the back... you guys noticed this too? Is this increased with a bigger tire? Or is the bigger tire only increased in width?

yes, a wider rim and a bit more like wider swingarm, offset front sprocket etc....

Man, take it from me, I did the 260 Metz on the rear after picking up a nail. I was told that there would be no differance keeping the Dunflop on the front. Let me tell you and listen, change both tires now. The Dunflop is C.R.A.P. Save yourself some trouble and do both in the Metz.
