bigger tires actually turn slower, less rpm
You both said the same thing. LOLIt will change gear ratio some and speedometer some. Not sure how much. Bigger tire travels farther on each turn. But, I think it is mostly for looks. Wide tire looks cool.
I have to agree Oklahoma sucks at keeping their roads up unless it is a toal road, whats sad is their are alot of great rides in Oklahomamy bike still rides the same i did the front and rear together it got rid of almost all the road tracking. the tire shine on the front tire looks the same but the rear is a little more because the tire is wider so i am leaning about the same as far as stiff ride it still has the same ride as before. I live in oklahoma and you will know if the tire rides stiff because the roads here suck
