Need new tires and was thinking about using the 50 series instead of the 55's. I know the height will be a little shorter but are there any ill effects from that or will a 50 work OK. Thanks for any info,
You won't notice any difference. As stated above, the stock tire is a 50 series and with the 55 series you speedo will display a slower speed and your throttle response will be a bit slower but as far as the ride, you can't tell the difference unless you are a very, VERY skilled and well schooled jockey!
