Just remember your speed reading won't be true due to a larger circumference of your tire. Same as if you would have changed a sprocket in size.

Another thing, it won't look like a 190 tire since it will be squeezed onto a thinner rim than the 190 was designed for. More peaked tire. Might turn in a little quicker than a normal 180.

I hope you got the bt-16 PRO version. the other would be the OEM replacement which is a harder compound

I went with a 190/55ZR17 and 120/70ZR17 and love them. Turns faster and gives me more confidence while leaning but this may be due to the increased grip of the Mitas Sport Force+ tires I bought. . .

^ Comparing new anything to worn out anything of course you will think the new tire is the best thing since slice bread even though they are not........
