Brandon its true, those tires are crappy, only good for drag racing....

That being said, if I ever build another dragbike, it'll wear shinkos too.

a 190 tire has a wider contact patch while riding a straight line. a 180 tire is better for cornering. fwiw....a 400hp busa will chew up and spit out a 190 tire.

most busas are downtuned that make those power numbers since they pull it up in sixth w that power.

190 tire on the road will not roll over as easily as a 180. Some tire manufactorers help this by designing the tire more rounded but in all honesty for street applications you wont get that far over. A 190 may make the rear feel more planted but its a preference of the rider.
