Changing tire aspect ratio, rims?

Bike: '08 GSXR1000

What affect, if any, will be felt by moving from the front 120/70/17 to a 120/60/17?

What will be the impact of changing rear from 190/50/17 to 190/55/17?

What will be the impact of changing rear from 190/50/17 to 200/50/17?

What will be the impact of changing rear rim from 6.0" to 6.25" width?


Thanks in advance for any insightful advice.

Aaron,
You'll be signifcantly changing the rake and the trail.
Also the 60 series front tire is very shallow and will want to push on corner entry.
There's more to it as well. Give me a call or swing by and we'll chat for a bit.

Patrick, I will definitely talk with you.

In the last two weeks, I have wound up with two of these low profile front tires. They seem to be a hit with the drag race crowd. Supposedly, they are the lowest profile street legal tires one can buy.

Also particularly concerned with a wider rear rim. I would think that a 6.25" rear would not have a tremendous impact vs the factory 6.0" rim, but wanted to make sure when running a 190 factory tire. Would it be better to move to a 200mm (+10mm width) to offset the extra 0.25" rim width (even though I know the rim only represents a 6.4mm change)?
