Im buying a set of Maxxis Desert IT D tires for my RXV450 and was wondering about a few questions.

Rear: what size?
Tubes: Bridgestone TR-4 Yes or no...also what size should I use for the rear?

What pressure should I run in them? Mostly Baja ridding.


thanks

I think the largest Maxxis tire is a 140, it`s what i run, a super duty tube for a 140 tire Moose, bridgestone ect., best all around pressure for me is 12lbs.:cigar:

I like the best tires possible for the street, but for a dirt bike, I like the buzz of new tires and generally buy, Kenda (Unadilla) or Maxxis. This time MotoSport had the special Dunlops (designed specifically for the CRF) on sale for about the same price. I do 12psi too. BTW, http://www.motosport.com is the hot ticket for tires and dirtbike stuff.

Do you use a 100/90 -18 size tube or a 110/90 - 18 with the 140 tire?

My bad...you are correct. Correction made....I don't know what i was thinking. Thanks RXV_Poor! What size of tube would I need for a 140 on an 18" rim.

You need a tube size for the 140 tire, you want to get as close to the proper tube size as possible, sure a 110 size will inflate the tire, but you are stretching the rubber of the inner tube thinner.

And don`t just buy a HD tube, buy a super HD tube, there is a big difference.:cigar:

I didn't know there was a super HD tube. Who makes it?

Moose, Dunlop, Bridgestone and a couple others, they are so big and thick that they usually do not come in a box.:eek::cigar:

I pinched a Michelin HD front on my KTM 525 the other week. All the local shop had was a med tube. I'll try the SHD tubes next.
