just do it. i've ran 190s my last 2 track days. there are ups and downs. but it all evens out. and if its just for looks who cares.

I would not spend the money on a rim though. come look at my back tire (190 on a 5.5" rim) and ralphs (190 on a 6" rim) side by side and tell me what u think.

I got a wheel for my 600 today and the one i got was a 6" wheel not a 5.5" with a 180 it looks off to me, like it's worn all messed up and streched out? I didn't put my old 180 on it it already had one so I was thi nking about a 190, is that whats supposed to be on a 6" wheel or Am I just on crack?

that question has already been answered for you in detail.
6.0 was designed for the 190
5.5 for the 180
on that family of GSXR's

I was pretty sure, but I didn't know if it was normal for people to put 180's on 6" wheels?

Kinda of like a 9" wheel on a car will take a 275 or 295 no prob but a 275 will look weird on a 10" wheel


So I should get a 190 or 200 :look: instead of putting the 180 off my 5.5" wheel on it. i have a good 180 tire of the other wheel. :mad:
