    Hi guys, just bought a 1978 xs400 and ive never bought motorcyle tires before so id like some help. Its got 3.50x18 on both front and back right now but the front is too fat so the dude took the fender off to fit it, Seems like even a small step down and it would fit. Ill attach photos of the rims aswell incase that affects tire choice. Any recommendations on size/brand would be helpfull.

    3.00-18 is the factory front tire size, and 3.50-18 is correct for the rear.
