I know it's only 10 mm, but I want the widest rubber I can fit before I soak the expense of a fat tire kit and move to a 250-300. Aesthetics, I suppose.
So what do you all think of a 190? I see Michelin makes a pilot power in this size, too much rubber for our rim?
Anyone know the rim width?
What is involved in doing the crossover to that zx11 wheel?
