Send a message via AIM to Metzzen1
the 55 is not necessarily refering to the width. the first number(190) would be the "width" in mm. the second number (50 or 55) would be the percentage of the width that makes the sidewall i.e. 50 would be 50% of first number (190) which would be about 95mm for a 50 vs 107mm for the 55. So techinically the tires are both the same width, but the 55 would APPEAR to be wider from the extra heigth in sidewall
