Hey, I have a 2001 250ex and I was wondering what kind of rear tires I should put in it and what size, the stock size is 22x10x9 should I go with a 20x11x9. Right now it has the original balloony ones on it.

Just depends on what type of riding you are doing as to what size tires you use, if trail riding stay with the stock size if Mxing you will want 20,s on the front and 18's on the rear.

That is a very good setup for rocky conditions... a lot of desert racers run that too.

Does it make a change in the looks if you downsize to a 20 rather then the stock 22s? Im looking at maxxis razrs and they dont make a 22x10x9 stock tire size for a 250ex(correct me if im wrong)

No it would look fine.The reason they are a smaller size is that the stock tires are like baloons while the maxis are flat across for more traction and stability.

The 20" rear and 21" front is the best all around setup you can ask for. The 22" tires tend to give a tippy feeling through turns, plus there is more sidewall to collapse on itself through turns. The 20's will lower your center of gravitiy plus give you a bit better acceleration.
