So I'm looking into new tyres for my kawa z400 ltd. Standard is 130/90 16 back and 3.25 18front.
I want to have a little wider tyre in the front and same or close to same width in the back but I'm having trouble understanding what sizes I can use on the back tyre and the conversion of the numbers? routerlogin
I hope I've explained my "problem" in a manner you can understand.whatsapp web
Basically I want same tire size width and height both front and back. Is this possible with current rim's? 192.168.0.1

No.
Your 3.25 front is only a little smaller than a 100/90 that is measured the metric way.
A 130 won't fit the front.

I don't know how much room you have up front, but you may be able to go up a little on the front and go a little smaller on the rear and get close to the look you want.

The bike shops have the books that list the tyres available. The book should also have the crossover reference from the old to new sizing. I do not know what year your bike is, but, some of the older bikes had very small gaps between the tyres and hard parts. I have a 100 90 on my XS400 Yamaha, and have no need to go any bigger.

It would be nice and appreciated if you would go to the New Members forum and introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself. Folks tend to open up more if they feel they know you just a little bit.
