any year xr 70/80/100 wheels are compatible. I have a set in each size for my 100. The 12/14 set up is great for indoor/short tight tracks and the smaller rear really throws a roost, the 14/16 is really good except no one makes a good front tire in a 16" so if you can get your hands on a 17" front wheel from an older cr80, that is the best set up. The stock 16/19 is ok for offroad/trails but for a playbike on the track I prefer the 14" rear and 17" front.

19/16 seemed to be crappy for any type of riding. 17/17 on fairly narrow slicks was so much fun, the bike felt very stable and really rode well. 17/16 would probably be the best for trail riding. 16/16 was awesome for trails, street, and about anything in between, the bike felt less like a chopper and was much easier to ride. anything smaller than 16's I would buy an xr80 swing arm. 16/14 is nice for tighter dirt pit bike tracks, but for trail riding it brings the bike too close to the ground. I never tried 14/14 but I would think it probably rides just as well as 16/14 in tight dirt tracks and would make a great size for street as well. 12/12 Is the way to go for tight street tracks, but I would make sure to go with a 2.50" rim front and rear.



The next XR100 I buy I will run either 14/14 or 12/12 on an XR80 swing arm. 16/16 would have been more fun with a big bore kit and some narrower tires.

it doesnt look right because the front end is raked out so much for that huge front wheel. get an old cr60 wheel that has drum brakes. it will bolt right up

You can slide the forks up a ton, even more with an aftermarket triple clamp. Search my name on here or tt and you will find pix of my bike on 19/16, 17/17, and 16/16. The thread is something like XR100 Mini Stuntard.

If you want to stick with drum brakes I have a set of steel 12's with drum brakes if your interested. Here is a picture of them on my bike. Will bolt right up to an xr/crf fork and swing arm.
