Tires

I just purchase a new rear tire 190/50-17 its a vee rubber edge,and it looks narrower than the dunlop that was on there. Is it the generic tire or do they get wider as u ride them.

Different manuf make diff shapes. The Donlop q2 is a taller tire than the Mich Power 2ct's just depends on what you like.

if you were looking for a wider tire you could have put a 200/50/17
most of us are using a 190/55 cause its taller and more cone shaped.

You purchased the proper size....no they dont get "wider", just flatter if you ride staright up.
