hi there any one know what are some good tire size for front and back looking to get some for my 2011 ninja 250:rolleyes:
Stock sizes are the best. The Ninja doesn't need a larger rear tire, some people just want the look.

As far as brands, there are a ton of good choices out there because they are the current standard 17" size now (last gen wasn't...).

I always run a sticky full-sport front tire like a Bridgestone BT-016 Pro (what I'm buying next) or Continental SportAttack (what I have now). On the rear you can run a matching sport compound or a slightly harder sport-touring compound. The Ninja isn't going to rip up rear tires so the sport will last OK.

You'll get about 5 years max out of a set of tires, even if they still have a ton of tread left they are toast by then. Tires dry out and get harder from heat cycles as well as from just sitting.
