Help needed for buying rear tire Yamaha Blaster

Hi, Having a hard time trying to find good all terrain tires (in stock) for a 2002 YFS 200/SE Blaster.

The OEM tires that came with it are 21x7x10 FRONT and 21x10x8 REAR.
I don't want to switch out the rims.
Someone suggested putting 20x11x8 in the rear. Would putting a smaller height rear tire be a good idea or a bad one?
And...would Maxxis tires be good tires? Riding on hard, rocky trails. What about SunF?
Appreciate any help you could give me.
Thank you.

1" smaller tire will only lower it 1/2". Maxxis has some good tires.
I would consider a 22" tire, it seems more common. I got these last time, I like 'em on my Warrior. Also, if the Blaster is like the Warrior it is very low to the ground at the rear brake rotor ect. So a 22" would give you a little more room for rocks.

If I get a 22" back tire, should I get a 22" front tire? Or does it matter? Thank you.

It's not a big deal either way because it's only 1/2" height difference. But yes, why not, gives you a little more ground clearance for the rocks.

Would you have any tire brand recommendations as I was hoping to get Razr tires (heard they were good) but can't find my rear tire size in any of them anywhere online. Thank you so much for your help. I am very grateful.

The link I provided has one, Ocelot, I think it's Chapparal's brand and is good for the money. Look around there, they have lots at good prices.

Maxxis, Kenda, ITP, are a few.
Razr is a Maxxis tire.
ITP is a very good tire but exspensive too.

Are SunF tires any good?
Having a hard time finding a good rear tire even close to the blaster's odd size.
(21x10x8)
Thank you.

Don't know, they are probably fine. Why not go up 1 inch?
