i have a bald rears on my raptor and looking at some new tires and was wanting to maybe go to 22's instead of the 20in that are on it. i do mostly slow trails but like to go fast and wheelies at times and was wondering if id have to change sprockets or anything?

i have 23's up front and 22's on the rear. coming from 21's up front and 20's on the rear it made my bike feel super top heavy. i dont really care for them but i was after ground clearance and it did improve that but i traded a bit of handling for it. also, when draggin with 20's on the rear i could launch in 2nd and have a nice take off. with the 22's launchin in 2nd bogs the motor a bit and taking off in 1st is kinda slow.

22's didn't clear my nerfs. I forgot all about that. I ended up buying a +2 swinger.

I had 22" sand stars and they would rub every now and then but not hard on the heal guards. As for the gearing I was running 13/42 most of the time but tried 12/40 and 12/42. I stuck with the 13/42
