Lower would be better for the WR250R, but it's more fun to get squirrely with. I think a lot of it depends on the tire profile- some tires are pointy and sketchy, others are a little flatter and comfy. I did not love the Trakmasters I put on the WRr, but the two rear Trakmaster's worked fine on the F650gs. I'd be interested in trying it with a T43 on the WRr. That might be worth a try down the road.
