whats the matter couldn't squeeze the new 300 on there?


I have a 190 because thats what came with the bike and I figure the 6 inch rim is made to hold a 190 so thats what I put on. The bike turns plenty fast enough especially with the Pilot Powers on there so I didn't need to switch to a 180 to turn any faster.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Tire size question: 180 vs 190

I've had a 180 for quite sometime now; so long I can't remember what a 190 feels like... it's slightly taller and narrower for the quicker turn-in; and it's cheaper to boot. But the 190 will give you more rubber to contact the road in the corners.

180/55 because it has qwuicker turn it making the bike even more fun to flick into a turn. 190/55 for the track.
