If you own a Yamaha WR250X, or are converting your WR250R to a supermoto, tires are one of the most important "mods" to consider. There are a lot of tire options out there, and listed below are some of the ones we've used on our project bikes, or just recommend in general for these bikes once you've switched it over to 17" supermoto wheels.
FRONT TIRE NOTE: The Yamaha WR250X supermoto came stock with a 110/70-17 front tire. Some WR250R/WR250X owners will run a 120/70-17 front tire on their supermoto, but certain tires in that size can rub on the widest part of the front fork under compression, so be aware of that. You will notice below that we recommend a 110/70-17 front tire for this bike just to avoid any rubbing issues. 110 front tires are a bit harder to find, but there are still some high quality tires offered in that size.
REAR TIRE NOTE: The Yamaha WR250X supermoto came stock with a 140/70-17 rear tire, which is the size we use. You can also run a 150/60-17 rear tire size with no issues.
