My bad. Its the 19 wheel. Guess I thumbed too fast on my phone and missed it on the review before posting.

Although, I have wondered about tire sizes and how they pick them. Or support them. I mean I thought the TUblis tire could be a cool alternative for my first wheels. Front 21 is supported, but not the rear 17. I think my KLR is being discriminated by this company. They only support 3 sizes. 18, 19, & 21.
