That's a weinie 2.75" wide front rim. Also consider the 120/70 is 84mm high while the 110/80 is 88mm high. You're gaining width but losing height. I ran a 110 in a 591 & a Sportmax and I like the way the radial 110 worked & felt.

I just put about 1500 miles on my 1100. I need new tires. I still have the 18"s on my 1100. I always buy mez4 metzlers for it (160/60ZR18 rear and 110/80ZR18 front). Can I use a 120/70ZR18 on the front and it not be to wide. I would like more meat on the front. I put 17"s on my 7/11 and get used to the wider tires. I dont want to change the 1100 to much from stock. I want to leave the 18" wheels. Is the 120 tire to wide?
