Now it comes with Radial tires on wider rims Thinking of using the wider 2004 Katana wheels in putting on my 1991 Kat I heard of this swap before on the Kat Riders Forum, Sp I was planning on a 120/60-17 front on the new rim thats wider than sock that carries a 110/80-17 The tail end is a 140/80-17 BT 45... Now I have heard that a problem with a radial tire is nill? compaired tp a Bias tire the radial is more forgiving when it loses its air BLOWOUT! So withthat said now to picl size for the rear wheel. 140 Na! 150??? may be . a 160 looking good What a 170 ??? I cant do that can I??? OK now what tire for this old RE-Newb Something nice and sticky!! I did a lot of recearch have decided on..... Contintal Sport Attacks Size 120/ 60 or 70- 17 the rear Im going 160/60-17 That how it stands Comments welcome

You should do a 120 front and a 170 rear if you can fit it with Pilot Powers or the pp2ct's if you ride harder than average. Again, im not sure what will fit on those rims and not scrape the swingarm. But if you can fit em run the biggest ones up to 170 rear on that bike.

WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE +me
