Should i go 140/70 or 150/60 in the Rosso II? NVM i just realized the width difference is around 5mm, not enough to make a huge difference in look, i went with the 120/70 front and 140/70 rear.
- If possible, try and match your front tire to stock specs. Changing the geometry on the front tire has a bigger impact on handling, usually negative.
- look at the numbers. A stock Bonnie wants 130/80. The Rosso II's are 140/70. If you add the width and aspect ratio numbers, they come out to the same circumference, in this case 210 for both. So the geometry will change, but on a rear tire it will not be that noticeable.
And since I'm on this topic, I need to correct some very bad information given earlier in this thread...
First, this information is very misleading to other readers, which is why I'm surprised no one corrected it in the 5 months it's been up here.
This post is not meant to rag on anyone, or make anyone feel stupid, so please don't take it that way. It's just to better educate everyone on here, so you can make properly-informed decisions.
