The tyre size is governed by the rim width and the space available in the wishbone. I would measure the space available for the tyres width right up inside the wishbone along with the tyre size that you have at present.
The tyre can be oversized but watch out for slipping on the rim of the wheel!
Consult a Yamaha Workshop for specialist tyre sizes and compounds. Pirelli make some super sticky tyres alowing for excellent high speed cornering!

You are governed by safety. The hub width will determine the maximum width and type of tyre as will the width of the rear suspension/wishbone.
Consult a qualified tyre fitter for accurate sizes. Don't forget your speedometer will no longer be accurate!

Noise coming from the rear of the car as result of changed rear tyres.


Did you fit tyres of the same size as were removed, if not tyre could be rubbing on inner guard or suspension.
Did you use the same rims as you removed, if not the rim offset may be wrong and rubbing on the brake or suspension.
Remove wheels and look for rub marks.

I has to change my WTB Velociraptor 44/50 tyres last week due to age and wear bu


I soon found out that the 44/50 on the tyre is a two-number system introduced by Wilderness Trial Bikes who make the Velociraptor tyres, and is called the GMS both sizes are in millimeters and refer to the size of the inflated tyre, I don't think that it was a popular sizing system I couldn't find much about it but this is what I found out.
  1. The first number is the width of the inner casing in this case 44mm
  2. The second number is the width of the outside tread 50mm
---------figure 1-----722b4b0.gif

These measurements are taken on a standard rim which is 20 mm wide at the bead-capturing point (inner measurement) , with a tyre inflated to 60psi (4 BAR) and maintained for 24 hours.

The recommended pressure range is from
40-75psi on most WTB tyres. Download the PDF on tyres sizes for all the WTB range.

NOTE: > 14.50 psi = 1 Bar


Common BSD (also in inches) vs Actual Wheel Diameter check out my GMS Tip HERE for more information on this critical Bead Size and Tyre size relationship

622mm (24.5") = 29" - Large MTB
622mm (24.5") = 28" - 700C
590mm (23.3") = 26" - Standard MTB
520mm (20.5") = 24" - Childrens MTB
451mm (17.8") = 20" - BMX

NOTE: The BSD of the tyre is always 15% smaller than the Actual Measured Wheeel Diameter

The WTB tyres also have one rotation for the front tyre the treads usually point in this direction and a rear tyre can be used in both directions depending upon its use either Dry Mud OR Cross Country Downhill

Change tyre


Hi, Bhawani after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Bajaj Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day.

What size tyres camaro 1997 3800rs v6


The wheels could have been changed on the car from the standard original factory set and hence the tyre size may not be the standard factory original size.
The size of the tyres on the vehicle now is moulded into the side wall of the tyres and is easy to read.
Check all 4 tyres because larger size tyres may have been fitted as a pair to the rear.

The size might read - for example 245 45 18 or 235 45 17 (there are a huge number of sizes for each model of tyre).

The first 3 numbers are the width of the tyres in mm eg 225 mmm or 235 mm and so on. The second 2 numbers are the tyre profile size or ratio (which can be 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 and so on. The third number is the wheel diameter size. If you have 18 inch wheels on the car the tyres will read 18 or if they are 17 inch wheels the tyres will read 17 and so on.

Diferent size tyres front and back is this normal?


That is normal, most motorcycles run different size front and rear tyres. My BMW has a 21" in the front and a 17" in the rear. The tyre you buy should match your riding style. Don't get a race tyre if all you do is communting, the tyre will wear out too quickly. Expect to pay $150 or so for a rear tyre, perhaps a little less for the front. Mounting & balancing is normally $20-$50 per tyre. Many shops will not mount a tyre you bought somewhere else, keep that in mind if you order tyres from the internet.
