Can I run a 130/80-17 tire?

I'm looking at replacing my stock tires with something a little more dirt oriented and saw the Duro 904's. The biggest size they make is a 130/80-17 TT. Is it possible/advisable to run that tire on a wee? I'm a little hesitant to throw down $250-300 for tkc's or karoos since it seems like they wear relatively quickly. Thoughts?

That's a little too thin in my opinion.

I agree. The bike is designed for the sizes it calls for.

I'll know where I'm supposed to be when I get there.
