Don't go too big on the rear either a 120/80 - 18 or a 120/90 - 18 too large a tyre will rob power & effect the handling, 250cc dirt bikes need some slip on the rear, if you put too large a tyre on the bike won't turn.

I have been using MT21's on my WRR & D606's on the TTR, the MT21's on the WRR turn in really quick, the D606's don't turn in as quick & do have a small amount of slip or understeer on the front.

If you run the 120/90 on the rear drop the gearing to a 13T on the front to keep the gearing the same

Cheers Terry

A 140 is miles too big for a little 250, 120 max even 110 will turn better, find grip better and offer less power robbing resistance. Have a look at the link in the above comment. Asking about tyres is a bit of a minefield as everyone has a different opinion usually related to their differing uses and priorities and regular riding conditions. Good luck.
Rich.
