So I've been looking around for a new set of tires for my cm450. Problem is the stock rear 16" wheels come in what is an apparently uncommon width of 4.60". Guess Dunlop was making tires in this exact size for a while but has since discontinued. Wondering if it would be kosher to throw on a 5" avon MKII rear? any thoughts?

130/80 is the conversion size
the 5" should be just fine

a 130 is too wide for the CM450 swingarm. The metric replacement is actually a 120/90x16.
The front 18" is a 100/90x18 Rear 16" is 120/90x16. Hope this helps.

so why is a 130 to wide for the swingarm? now before answering you might wanna take a midol.

The 130 leaves less than an 1/8th of an inch of space between the sidewall and the tubing on the swingarm. I wanted to run the 130 on my CM, but when I put it on it was too close for comfort once you got a rider on it. The 120 fit perfectly with o chance of rubbing. The extra 5mm on each side is a nice safe zone.

Easy gentlemen! Thanks to you both for the responses. I suspected that a 130 might be too close for comfort. Still tempted to try it out though given the pretty dismal selection of good looking 120s.

I ended up going with the Kenda Challengers and had great results. They decently sticky and they wore pretty good.. I ordered them from smalltires.com, I think I ended up around $120.00 shipped for both tires and tubes.

my cm450e has a 130/90-16 on it....its tight but doesn't rub and i'm actually replacing it with a 120/90-16 bridgestone trailwing tire...dual sport tread. going with 120 only because a 130 isn't available for the 16" wheel in a dual sport tread...if 120 feels comfortable for you then go with it
