I'm building a 2015 YZ250 smoker and want to throw some blue wheels on there. I'm trying to decide if I should go with 18" or 19". My original plan for this bike was woods but I have a feeling I may love it and want to hit the track once in a while. From what I read, a lot of guys seem to really like the 18" rear tire, I've never ridden with one.

18” is great if you have a tire in mind and ride a lot of woods. Otherwise go with a 19”. More options in tires and more attractive to potential sellers, and it’s good for everything.


If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

The 18" is good for really rocky terrain. If your riding doesn't go there then I would stick with the 19".
