I think you have to run a rear tire on the front as no one makes a 17 knobbie for front.

I think it looks terrible and appears to handle interestingly.

If the he terrain isnt too technical the street tires will be good...or you can get like avon distanzias which will do mild off road well and grip well on the street.

You can do surprisingly well in the dirt on 17" knobs....specially mud and sand

Yeah cause the rear tire mounted up front has a huge footprint. Still looks bad to me. Don't like big wheel/tw200 look.

Yes. Only ones they sell...just designates front vs rear.

On their site 120/70-17 and 150/60-17 and 160/60-17 are supermoto specific compound. I've heard
this is how they come from US distributors too. They are the exact sizes you want (I'd go 150/60 for rear not 160).

I have two new Bridgestone radial tire specific inner tubes I'm going to list for sale tomorrow in classifieds. You might want to think about new tubes.

Remove it.
Save weight, no more poor running issues.
Oh, and put an IMS 3.2 tank on it.
