While shopping tires for the RT a question or two has occurred to me.
1. What is the secret to interpreting the sizes?
In other words, what is the real difference between a size 90/90 - 18 and a size 100/90 - 18?
Next, I can find Avon Venoms in a 100/90-18 and in a 120/90-18, but both are sold as front tires. The rear tire specs for the RT call for a 120/90-18.
So here is the question -
2. If a tire is advertised as a front tire but the size is what is called for in a rear tire, is there some compelling reason not to go with it to match a set?
Part of me says "The tire will never know the difference."
But then, one never knows unless he asks...
Thanks in advance,
