I have a good deal on Rain Pirelli tires for the track

front 120/70/R17
rear 190/60/R17

I know the front is the right size but i am wondering if 60 on the rear tire will be a probleme .

Thank you

Might not clear a hugger if you are running one.
I suppose it's possible that you may have to add a link to your chain, but I've not heard anyone comment about that in past posts.
Do you have an aftermarket link on your shock?

Depends on your sprocket size and chain length.

They are a much larger tire than you would expect.

Also be aware that a good deal on rain tires usually means someone's old ass rain tire. Wet Race tires have a very short shelf life much much less than typical race tires

I had plenty of clearance with a 190/55 Pirelli race tire under the stock hugger on the 1000RR, but with the race tire that clearance went to about 3/8"
