"I gave these tires two stars for one reason . Manufacturer claims they are 190/50/17 and they are definitely not . As soon as I saw these tires leaning against my front door from 30' away I could tell I did not get 190 tire . Measuring it with a caliper confirmed that . Free standing tire measured 179 millimeters . Way short of 190 . Bettalex 015R I had on my 6" rim measured 196 so I decided to mount it on 5.5" rim . Mounted Continental Motion measured 178mm. As far as I can tell the only way this tire would be 190 is if it was unfolded flat as a car tire . So , if you need 190 tire for a 6" rim look elsewhere . This manufacturer does not make one . As far as performance . I have maybe 500 miles on them and so far I am happy . For the price you get a lot of performance . Out of that mileage 100 miles was storming the canyons. Because of the flat profile turn in is a little slow but other then that I felt confident on them at full lean angles . It will be interesting to see how long that performance persist and when it will start falling off . BTW I'm riding 2003 SV1000N with full GSXR suspension and brakes . In past few years I used mostly Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and Pilot Race various compounds tires"
