Has anyone used or is using a 110/100-19" size rear tire on their YZ-125s. I ride my 2005 Yamaha YZ-125 in the woods on trails in the mountains of NC. It is mostly technical single track with lots of steep hill climbs and a little moto sometimes. I can get a very good price on a 130/70-19" Michelin tire which is the same size as a 110-100-19" rear tire in other brands. I am wearing out the standard 100/100-19" or 120/80-19" rear tires. I have tried different brands and tread types and they do not last long. My YZ-125 is set up for woods riding including 13/50 gearing, a Steahly FWW, and many other mods and accessories for riding the trails in my area. I am 56, 175lbs and have a blast riding this YZ-125 2-Stroke, lots of fun and great exercise for this old racer. I would like any advice, input or tips from other forum members on running a larger rear tire and any other tips too for riding in the woods. Thank you for any help on this issue.

I did on a 99 cr 125. Revs slower. Good on really slippery soils. Your 125 rim might be too narrow for that tire.

As far as I know, Dunlop has never produced a110-100x19 tire, they do make a 110-100x18 tire though.

If you’re riding single track and steep hills just go ahead and get yourself the Shinko Cheater. You’ll thank me later.

I think they’re around $60-$70 for the 19 inch rear. I can’t imagine any Michelin is that cheap. It lasts pretty long too. The two best tires for that kind of riding and are fairly cheap are the cheater and IBex. However the IBex doesn’t offer a 19 inch (at least I don’t think they do)
