    Looking for a wheel set for a 2008 Yamaha TTR 125L. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Thank you

    years ago I did excels on mine. If you have spare hubs... you would be looking at about $450 in parts (spokes, rims, nipples).

    Thanks for the quick and helpful replies! I race a 600 & 1000 during the season and was looking for something to keep my head in the game during the winter. Do you recommend the 17 x 2.5 (front and rear) or the 17 x 3.5 rear. Does one size limit you to tire selection, etc. What size rear tire will a 3.5" rear accommodate? I have a ton of Pirelli SC1's 120/70, or could easily get my hands on the rears that the 300's run (may be overkill)

    On mine I ran the 125 sized slicks. (90/90-17??) 2.75 rim in the front and 3.5 in the rear.
    You could run 2 front tires without issue.

    If you have the stock TTR you can put Bridgestone Bt45s on the stock rims and race in the stock class — most fun IMO—some are lacing a 16” front to the hub and still stock legal just check...

    Thanks again Gents. What class do you feel is the most competitive? I used to race 450/open expert/pro on the West coast. Starting small and likely build a 450 SM in the near future. I'm in Charlotte, NC with easy access to Carolina Motorsports Park and VIR cart track.

    Damian, my TTR has a 16" rear and a 19" front in stock trim. Do you have any suggestions as to which brand/model tire to run if I decide to run it in the stock classes? Thanks in advance.

    Bridgestone BT45s. Pretty much everyone running stock 100 setups use them.

    There are two speed ratings you can get BT45s in, H and V. H has taller sidewalls, V in the same rim size has shorter sidewalls, and may be wider. V seems to be 'stickier' than H and was what I was advised to run.
