PostSubject: Tire size   Thu Jul 03, 2008 7:54 am

Hi everybody,

I'm new to this forum and new to atv riding.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Ozark 250 that has stock wheels on it.

I would like to know what size wheel and tire that I can upgrade to and not have any rubbing issues.

Thanks,
Mr.Moose

It looks like that bike came stock with 22" tires. You could probably fit a 23" and MAYBE a 24" tire but that would probably start pushing it. Hard to say without knowing exactly how much fender clearance there is. I wouldn't go very big, because you will start noticing a dramatic power loss with a smaller cc bike. I would stay with a 22" and maybe consider a 23" if it was mine.

24" or 25" IMO - my timberwolf 250 has 25" all the way around now didn't notice any loss in power from 22" to 25" alot better clearance, my 25"s measure 24" tall, the 22" i had measured 22".

Thanks

That puts me on the right track for choices on tire clearance.

Any good places to check on tires and rims?

I usually check ebay first, but there are several other places. I have found really good prices at Cookeville Yamaha on wheel and tire packages so you might do good at a local dealer.

SSUVMan was telling me he got some from some place and they were great to buy from. He said he got them like the next day. You can PM him, I can't remember where it was.

Mr. Moose, Welcome to the board!

My son has an Ozark as well, I don't think you'l have much problem with a 23-24" tall tire, there is a ton of room up under the back fenders. The only thing I would caution you on, be careful of the weight of your tires, with that bike being a 5-speed, make sure you get a tire light enough to still be able to use 5th gear...

Maybe a 4ply tire instead of a 6ply, that would drop the tire weight considerably. Maybe aluminum wheels too?

Once again, Welcome.

Thanks everyone for your input. My Brother-in-law has a 06 Eiger 4x4 which has 25" tires on it since it has the same bolt pattern of my Ozark we put his tires and rims on my Ozark and they fit with no problems had lot of clearance for steering and no fender rubbing and it didn't seem to loose very much power with those tires on it.

I decided to go with 24x8x11 for my front since they are not a drive axle and 24x11x10 for the rear. the stocks are 22x10x9. I could not find a 24" tire for a 9" rim but plenty of them for the 10". so I ordered to wheels to go with the new tires.
My main concern is to not get the center of gravity to high or it will be hard to hold on a steep slope. Lets Ride

I went riding yesterday with my brother-in-law and I am quite pleased with my Mud lites.
I was able to go up big stepups and steep rocky trails and walk through deep mud holes with no problems.
With the stock tires up front the Ozark was a bit on the light side and wanted to jump up all the time, but with these Mud lites I don't have that problem anymore.
I would recommend these tires to anybody.

One happy rider
