    250sx skinny tire

    For all you guys with skinny tire on your 250 SX what exactly did you need. Is it a 350X or 200x rim and hub?

    Most guys get a 200x front end.
    Forks, triple trees, hub and wheel assembly. Pretty well just bolts right on. Only modification need would be the steering stops. Some guys donít bother, just allows you to turn tighter. Another benefit of this swap is having front disc brakes.
    '85 200X - Basket case, bought as a pair for $300. Winter project?
    '85 250SX Survivor - Only changed rear tires and air filter.
    '85 250SX Mudder - 27" Tires, Snorkel, Disc Brakes, 200X Front
    '86 250ES - Old workhorse. Bought running and driving for $125

    There are lots of threads on here for swapping in narrower front tires for the 250SX. The one above is just one recent one. There are others that go into greater depth on what need to do. You don't have to change the entire front end. Basically switch to a 10" wheel and then choose whatever tire you like.

    Only real issue is Douglas does not make a .190 aluminum 10x5 wheel with a 2+3 off set (to get the valve stem on the opposite side of the brake drum, now that said it will work as others have shown. many seem opt for a steel wheel that does have a 2+3 offset.
    I am on the fence as to which to get.

    I purchased everything from Rocky Mountain Atv. The front 4/110 4/130 Douglas .125 10x5 3.0+2.0 . Part number 1087590023 It should come up for a 1986 Honda trx250 utility. It's a dual pattern wheel I had to slightly enlarge the holes ever so much. For the rear Douglas 4/110 .125 10/9 3.0 + 6.0 offset this gave me over a inch wider then stock. Part number 1087590015. This will come up the same 1986 Honda trx250 utility. I did not have to enlarge the holes. Stock hub all around I like it much better for trail riding. 22/7/10 on the front 20/10/10 on the rear.

    Road 30 miles @ National Boone Forrest with this setup. Contemplating on doing one to my big red as well with steelies. I ran holeshots they worked great good traction but can break loss easy on the corners to slide.

    So the front used the stock hub and brake drum. Did you have to modify the spacers or did the new rim keep everything centered?
