What is the great difference between installing a 190/55 17 or 190/60 17 on a rim where 190/50 17 is the OEM size? Correct me if I am wrong, but the first # represents tire width, second # is sidewall hieghth and the last 17 is the rim radius. So the higher sidewall will cause rubbing on my rear hugger and I will have to pay attention to swingarm to tire clearances right?

Reason being, I have Pirelli Super Corse s 180/50 17 s on my 929 for quicker steering (yeah, like it needs it). Well, I would love to keep those for track tires as they are brand spanking new buns and I would like a quicker warming street tire. I plan on buying Diablos but would like to keep my options open.


Your knowledge is greatly appreciated.
