Front Milk Racing 21”x1.60 wheel benefits over stock:
1. Much better ability to roll over obstacles – wheel hit an obstacle at a higher point than makes a lower angle of attack than on a smaller wheel
2. More wide, knobby tires to choose from
3. Wide tire means much more grip
4. Lifts your bike up and improve ergonomics
5. Improved confidence
4. Improved stability and confidence
5. Imporved comfort
6. Corrects head tube angle for better front suspension angle of attack
7. More agressive look
8. More clearance – 21” wheel lifts hole bike giving more clarence which means it is less likely to be stopped by big obstacle hitting your frame
9. Better hub than stock – super sealed with additional o-rings.
10. Stronger and wider rim
The main benefit of a 21″ is its ability to roll over objects easily. This is simply due to their size – obstacles hit the wheel at a lower point than on a small wheel, so it’s easier to roll over it. These wheels will give you a more comfortable ride on bumpy terrain. They will allow you to ride places that may have been out of bounds on smaller wheels. Increased comfort and confidence on the rough ground will lead to faster riding.
Milk Racing Wheels
Sold worldwide and test proven by thousands of customers on six continents – the best quality/price wheels on the market. Upgraded, reinforced rims stained with anodizing process give them more scratch and corrosion-resistant surface than standard paint. Super strong upgraded stainless steel spokes and double-size brass nipples (stronger and more corrosion resistant than aluminium type) lanced with 3-cross spoke pattern make Milk Racing wheels strong enough to withstand more than what bike can stand. Our main goal is to give alternative wheel upgrade options for expensive competitors’ products and give the best product experience possible, providing as much hardware as possible to make it hassle-free as possible for you to focus on riding rather on figure how to put upgrade in.
Wheels always come with tools, spare spokes, spoke wrench, inner tube, rim band and rim lock – you only miss fitting a tire on. If you need 100% Plug&Play wheels, we offer tire fitting as a standard offer. Wheels come ready to ride straight from the box. A tubeless system can be fitted as well. As a direct producer, we provide customization such as colour combinations, dishing and others.

Fitment – Plug&Play option
We offer tire fitment, so the wheels come Plug&Play ready to ride straight from the box, saving you time and money (we might deflate the wheel for packing purposes).
If not specified, we use a universal standard tire generic brands known for their excellent price-quality ratio – verified, and tested by us and thousands of our clients worldwide.
The biggest issue with oversized tires for SurRon/Talaria is that they are hard to find and tell whether they will fit. So we select sizes, so you don’t have to worry whether they will fit your SurRon/Talaria.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen supply chain issues, tire brands and models are subject to change to other corresponding tire brands and models without notice. Please contact us if you need specific information about the current tire situation.
ON-ROAD – only for dry&wet pavement/asphalt application. Not suitable for off-road and winter conditions.
OFF-ROAD – great for all enduro/country-cross/motocross applications. Not suitable for on-road – almost no grip and tear off easily.
TRIAL/DUAL – the best option if you ride both on and off-road. Long-lasting and have equal traction on all surfaces.
FRONT WHEEL tire size fitment
Upside-down/inverted type fork (DNM, Manitou Dorado etc.) is a key. We cannot advise on every fork brand&model as all of them are different, but here are a few tips:
- any of our 21″ tire will fit to any upside-down fork
- WIDE 19″, 18″, 16″ tire size will fit to upside-down fork but it might hit fork covers, so you would need to either trim tire, cut the covers, or take covers off
- REGULAR 19″, 18″, 16″ tire size will fit any fork, even not upside-down type (Fox 40, RST etc.)
- Any SUPERWIDE tire will fit only DNM front fork, but it might need to be trimmed or/and fork covers needs to be cut or take off.
- for KKE and FASTACE fork for 19″ 18″ 16″ you should go only with REGULAR size. Those forks are very narrow at botton of upper section, which may cause WIDE tire rub.
Please contact us you have any questions or doubts about fork fitment – we can advise you about tire width so you can decide yourself based on the very fork you have.
REAR WHEEL tire size fitment
- REGURAL, WIDE (any diameter) size – no wheel modyfication
- SUPERWIDE (any diameter) size – wheel modification is required, so the tire doesn’t interfere with the chain.
- Dishing/offsetting – we move the rim to the left on spokes (more info here)
- Trimming – we trim the tire knobs
We highly recommend Dishing option – no grip loss on one side of the tire.
No modyfication is required on the bike itself for REGURAL, WIDE tire size. For SUPERWIDE, depending on your chain lenght, you migh need to change kickstand bolt for shorter (we include the bolt in the package). Instalation details in MANUALS.
Tubeless system for off-road application
NUETECH Tubliss Gen. 2.0 – the best possible upgrade for the wheel. It allows you to run much lower tire pressures safely, and dropping the pressure increases the contact patch, instantly increasing traction and providing protection for the rim. The stiffer the tire’s sidewall, the lower pressure you can run – this creates a new level of traction and performance.
Tubeless system for on-road application
galvanized – more scrach resistant
Silver standard – brass nickel-plated
Black – brass black chromed
Gold – brass
Hub and rim colour
Matt Anodized scratch resistant colour for cohesive appearance and corrosion resistance (advanced chemical process)
Powder coated with any RAL colour – comming soon
Larger wheel needs more power to stop and brakes upgrade is highly recommended . Magura MDR-P 220mm Floating – the best and the strongest rotor avilible on the market. Adapted and pre-mounted with thread-locking fluid. Wheels comes with caliper spacers.
Wheel will be balanced using Electronic Dynamic Wheel Balancer and adhesive steel weights.
Lancing the wheel on special dual hub that gives you oportunty to use double disc braking system. You can still use single disc – we add free ABS cover for not used side if you plan to upgrade you braking system later.
100% Plug&Play compatibility with OEM for standard option. Please refer to custom options and tire fitment tabs details.

Joel Grabin (verified owner) –
In my opinion adding this 21″ wheel was the best upgrade for the money if you trail ride. I ride in snow, ride through creeks, mud, over logs and rocks. This 21″ front wheel turns your Talaria into a bike dirt. Works excellent with the Talaria factory forks. Love this front wheel. Well done Milk Racing!
