Tire Size Help!

I walked down stairs in the garage to see a nice shinny NAIL in my front tire! I am running a Michelin Power Pilot 180 on the rear. I want to run a Michelin Power Pilot in the front also, I see the tire size for a ZX6R is a 120/65. Only problem is On The Border down the street only has a 120/70, 120/75 and a 120/80

What's the difference between them? Also I am not looking for your opinions on tires I just want to know about these. Thanks.

I would go to Motorcycles Unlimited but it's too far and I don't want to risk driving the bike that far with a nail.

Also I don't want to order off the internet and I don't want to mess with the suspension. Thanks.

I'd run the 120/70, it is much more standard and the difference will be very minimal.

The difference between a 65 series and a 70 series front tire is minimal at best.
In all honesty you'd probably see as much difference in height simply between 2 different brands of the same aspect ration.
The 70 series wll make your turn in a bit more linear, and depending on the brand of tire may speed up or slow down your turn in, althogh it will be very minor.
Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot! I am going to get the 170 then! I really appreciate the help, didn't quite understand that whole tire size thing.
