Re: Another Tire Question.(929rr)
A lot of people I know ride with the 180/55 rear. I have that size rear on both of my bikes.
I use them because they are cheaper. I have been told that the 180 will turn better than the 190. I really don't know. My 954 had a 200 on the back when I bought it and I got a new set of tires within a couple of months. They weren't worn out, I just just wanted new tires. At that time I was a returning rider after a 12 year hiatus.
My riding skill was very basic at the time, which is why I have no opinion on 200 vs. the 180.
