    Yes. I have 2 rear and 3 front wheels. Rear tires are TW34 and TW204. Fronts are TW203, K760, and SR244.

    Now. Each wheel has its own sprocket, 50 on the street tire, 54 on the knobby. Front tires all have rotors and their own set of pads.

    Not available in North America in TW sizes, as far as I know. Also, 6 of one, half a dozen of the other usually means not worth a flip anywhere.



    K180s originated as dirttrack race tires. Those I've seen used on competition bikes work well on a loamy, relatively soft soil, say, like a dirt oval. Those used on the street and offroad did not do so well. The tread is soft, wears quickly, and chews off in rocks.
