Re: 190 to 180 rear?
Well, the chicken strips are long gone now... even on the 190 BT003s. Just had to get a feel for how she handles I guess. I would agree that the wider 190 really does add some room for error. I would get a little tire walk on the 180 on a good lean (probably just about outta rubber), haven't had this problem yet and I know I've had it over about as far as I can go before it does it.
With that said, still have 1/2 inch or so on the front tires that is unused, from my understanding you have to ride very hard to get rid of that, most likely track type riding. Not sure if that is true, but I know she's been over really far and there is still room on the front, I assume that means I have a little more room on the rear as well despite hitting edge to edge!
