Tire issue: supply and demand
I just put new rubber on my 08 zx10 and after about 600 miles I ended up putting a nail in the back tire. So clearly it's time to replace the tire. The shop that I always go to told me that they cannot get the exact right tire that I want in a timely manner. Instead, they said that I can go with a 190 50z17 in place of the 190 55z17. What are the down sides to this tire? I checked dunlops site and they verified that I can put the 50 on instead of the 55 but it makes me nervous to not put the 55 on there. Any thoughts or experience on this? My inner non-squid is saying hold out the few extra weeks for the 55, but my outer child wants to ride right now.
