190 vs 180

Post by stev0 » Tue Jun 30, 2015 10:18 pm

I can get a 190/50 for half of the price of a 180/55 (Mich Supersport 2ct)

Can I run the 190 on my 990SM without too much negative effects?

Late response, but yeah, you can. I tend to use old trackday or race tyres on my SMT, since I tend to have loads lying around, which means it sometimes wears 190s I've used on my GSXR1000. It's not my primary choice, but you're unlikely to die in a fireball.

The only real downside is they're a pain in the arse to fit, if you're doing it yourself. Once on the rim you'll barely notice a difference.
