stallion636 Posted May 8, 2008 Report Share Posted May 8, 2008 I have been noticing that all of the guys here in Phoenix are running 190's and 195's on their 600's with the stock 5.5 inch rim. I have quite a few sets od very good Dunlop Ntec 195 rear and 125 fronts that I am contemplating trying out on my GSXR 750. What I know= I know that the profile of the tire is going to change because its a wide tire on a skinny rim. = I have heard that this will distort the tire and the enhanced contact patch will not really help if the tire is distorted. = I know that the bike is going to handle heavier but the track I am using them on this weekend is a very fast track and is not technical What I want to know= will the enhanced contact patch really help if it is on the 5.5 rim? = what are some other issues that may arise because of this change. Thanks in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
