Looking to upgrade to on of these front tires. I'm a newb to bike tires and not sure what size to get? Could anyone take five minutes to help?
I run the Kenda K270 4.00x18 which is close to factory size(a bit smaller) but real good as a 50/50 tire. Off road I drop the air pressure to 13 lbs and have no problems with grip on a variety of road conditions. On road the pressure is kept at 27 psi and has never slipped on me yet. The tire has worn very well with over 4000 kms on it so far. I would buy this tire again. BlairThanks for the reply.. So you are saying that the K270, T63, and D606 are all rear tires?... I'm looking for something that will ride well on road and off 50/50 . I'm still looking for an answer about size... What tire size will get me close o stock?
So will going larger than stock out front make the bike sit higher out front?
After having the stock front tire tried to kill us both on several occasions, my Riding Buddy and I both went to Bridgestone 302s. Effective tire, legal, and a nice balance to the stock rear. I had 606s front and back a DS KTM, and they were passable for DOT knobbies, but that KTM rode nothing like the TW, and I hardly ever used it on pavement. You're about to mount a rear knobby tire on the front. There are lot's of opinions on here; so just Google the site for yourself for the postings related to front tires. You'll find 50 folks swearing by 50 different tires.
