What all is the main difference between the price? I can get a 190/50 Corsa III for 192 and the 55 at 240..

Is it worth going to a 50 or should I stick with a 55?

for the 08/09 the KAWI Recommends the 55.

-by chainging it a few things will happen...one your speedo/odom will be off being how its set for the 55series tire
-the angle of the bike leans and turns will all be affected.
-kawi Obviously put the 55 on their bike for a reason why dont you! haha

The '06-07's come with a 55 too........I went down to a 50 and it was ok, but then a put the 55 back on an it's like wow! 55 for me from now on! The bike handles so much better with the 55. It's a pointer tire with steeper lean angles.

Yea they're kinda rare, and always seem to be on back order. And sometimes when I inquire about the 55 some places act like they don't know what I'm talkin about? They're like oh you mean the 50 right? I say no the 55! I noticed the 180/55 is more common than the 190/55.....



Has anyone noticed its hard to find a 55 series rear regardless what brand you choose?

really? My 07 came with a 50. I plan on trying a 55 for my next set though, heard they're more fun in the corners

Did you buy your bike used or something? Starting in '06 all of the -10's came standard with a 190/55 series tire. I just put on a 2CT 190/55 locally for $194. They can be found cheaper online I'm sure.

Most dealerships don't carry them, but I have no problem finding them online... Which is probably one of the reasons they're more expensive... Lower demand...

Totally depends on how tight your corners that you love are.

The two sizes have dramatically different profiles.
