I see a great deal on some tires, Metzler 190/50 17 and 120/50 17 (1400 miles off a CBR1000. Wondering what kind of handling changes I can expect on my 2000 S3, which has the same size rear but a 120/70 17 on the front. Thanks.

Are you absolutely sure it's a 120/50 x 17? It's not a common size at all. And even though you say it came off a CBR1000 I don't know of any generation of CBR1000 that uses it as standard.
You might get away with 60 series on the front but I reckon 50 series will feel really weird.

Just checked the ad again and it was changed to 120/70 17, so I'm good to go. Thanks for the quick reply, Terry.
