Sorry, but is this a trick question??? A 200/50/17 can only be 200mm wide.

The first three digits (200/) = width in mm. 200mm

The second digits (/50/)= profile or side wall height, but this number is a % of the width. In this case, the profile is 100mm.

The last digits (/17) = rim size in inches. 17in.

Based on your question, I assume you don't know how to read the tire numbers, therefore the above explanation.

Take care.

DB Screen, ASV Levers, PCIII, Yoshimura R-77 Slip-on, Front/Rear Galfer SBK Steel Braided brake lines, Nissin Calipers, Solo Seat Cowl, Fender Eliminator, Integrated tail light, K&N Filter, Anodized red oil/brake caps, Yosh bar ends, modded damper, rim tape, X-TRE, HID light (right side), Aluminum radiator fan, Fork/Frame/Swingarm sliders, 1/5th throttle

There are variations in different manufacturer's though. That one tire review stated that a 190 BT016 was actually 193 wide, and some other manufacturer's 190's were slightly less than 190 at the widest point.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

yes, but do you think that any person will visually be able to tell, say a 200mm from a 203mm. No way. The numbers on the tires are going to be the main reference and little deviation should be present.

I use 200/50 rear tires on 9 out of 11 of my bikes and my answer to the question is Bridgestones tend to be a little wider

I wondered this with my stock Dunlop, it looked wider than the Dragon Supercorsa and DCIII that I run now. What Bridgestone tire are you running that looks like a 180?
