When I purchased my bike about 3 years ago it had brand new Battlax tires, the rear tire is a 170/60/17 but the standard tire size for the bike is a 160/60/17.
What size should I go with, can i get another 170 or should i go with the stock size?

Or how about a 170/55/17 if they make that size...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Jason

you can stick with a 170 if you want, it'll be fine. don't go any wider than that, though.

i don't believe 170/55 is an available size.

I would stick to the 170 unless you want the hassle of changing rims. But then how much performance increase will it net? In my opinion I would stik with the 170
