Help WR400f

I just bought a 1999 WR400. Im doing the conversion obviously.

Does anyone know what the widest street tires that will fit the front and rear stock rims. I think a 150/70-18 might fit the back and maybe a 120/70-21 in the front. Just dont want to buy and them not fit or rub. The idea is closest i can get to supermoto without going down to 17".

I just dont have a grand to put into wheels and tires.

Thanks guys Really appreciate it.

150 might be close to the chain, you may need to offset the rear rim. A140 is a safer bet.

Plenty of guys over on supermotojunkie running 150/70 on older wr's, many without offsetting the rear wheel. I'd post a thread over there, you'd probably get some more accurate responses from someone who has first hand experience.
