Thanks for the input, measured a few but that never seems to make a difference when it comes time to put in that new 250.00 dollar tire!!!
And I Do think the blue ones are faster:rofl Good choice on your color!!

It will fit fine.,..but a side note...you may wish to try a 55 series tire...It seems to allow better turn in and outs as compared to my stocker tires..

I use Pirelli Corsa 3's and Love em..
The Corsa 3's are amazing and the 55 series does wonders for the handling. The only downside is it higher price tag. Its big bucks.

Not that I'll be there that often or for that long the corsa 3's are only a w speed rated tire, up to 168mph.

Go with the Michelin Pilot HPX Brother! I It is Z rated to 200 mph. It's got special compound development. Harder in the center, Softer on the sides for better cornering. And I can tell you that the 200 corners well enough to drag a knee with the rest of them.

So you guys are saying that a 190/55 handles better in turns than a stock 190/50? I was wondering about that. Also, a 200 will fit on the stock rim? Does anyone have pics of the 200 on a 14? Let's see 'um!

Just jerkin chains man, thanks for keepin it alive!

But since I'm here..... I have been running the Diablo 200 and love the hell out of it very confidence inspiring tire ( a little soft wears fairly fast but I ride hard and excellerate fast a lot so I dont expect it to wear long just grip good and it does, I highly recomend the Diablo tire!

I also went the '200' route. No problems at all. I stuck with the Bridgestone BT14. Other than wearing down at about 4K (aggressive riding), it hugs the twisties like glue. No chicken strips for me!

I just ordered the TracDynamics 240 kit. I'll let you know how it goes.
