Hello,
Looking for recommendations on the best tires for a 1984 250R.

Thank You!

Here's my recommendations: stick with stock tire size which is 22x11.0x8, this is the standard size for both he front and rear tires. Next, get tires with a common, tried and tested smaller tread pattern like ITP Holeshots, Kenda K284 Max A/T's, Maxxis M9804, etc.

The tread you choose is all you, I always use the smaller tread patterns when I get tires because I think it you get a better ride out of these tires versus something like a Kenda Bear Claw tire.

I get you you mean with the small tire tread pattern. I always feel like the ATC tires with small patterns like that won't hold up on rocky terrain if you're spinning the tires though.

I guess I will experiment with the smaller tread pattern and see how it goes. Thanks!

Tires are wearable parts. If you don't like the tires you buy now, move on next time and get something different. My feeling is that the most expensive tire isn't always the best tire. I think it depends on where you are going to ride and how hard you are going to ride.
