advantages of 190?

like most of you may know my trackday is in two weeks.. and my brother in law just got some carrozerias for his r1. would his 190 tire work any better than my 180 on my r6? personally i dont think so but opinions count.

on a 5.5" rim the 180 has a bigger contact patch.
So unless you have developed your setup around the 190, I'd suggest sticking with the 180

unless you adjust for it, it will not benefit you.

don't do it! many liter bikes perform better on a 180 if the rim allows. turns in better. ask patrick.

I have had people try to sell me on the 190 many times. They cost about 10 more so I guess thats why. I dont buy that there is an edge to be gained

There are benefits for running both the 180 or 190 tire. The person you need to discuss this with is who you buy your tires from.

ahhh but there is an edge.....

i ran 190's on my 600 half of last season....i also know of more than a handful of racers on 600's on the 190 setup.

i went back to 180's for now this season....the only difference i notice is when rolling on the throttle on full lean, the bike tends to drift slightly more on the 180 than the 190....

pros of 190 on 600 - a little extra grip

cons of 190 - takes a bit more to turn in than the 180

that's only my experience from switching back....i've tried both and haven't came to a conclusion which suits my riding best yet.
