Tire Size

Riding a 2008 cbr600rr. Can I put a 190 size tire on the rear. Will it make it stick better on the road than the stock 180s that it came with?

Search button FTW!

Answer is yes. However, there are some things to consider. Search the forum (little search button top right) to see what things to be aware of. Most importantly, wheel width.

I run 190/55/17 if you put the 50s on it will change the profile of the tire because our rims arent the right size for that tire

Honestly, you're better off sticking with a 180. The wheel is 5.5" and a 190 should be on a 6" wheel.

Yes, you can. With wider, heavier tires on the back you sacrifice minuscule amounts of turn in. Probably won't notice it. I'm not sure if it's worth it with our 5.5 inch rims. Like mentioned earlier, it's better to put 190's on 6.0 inch wide rims.

Also when it comes to the size, remember the 2nd number is an aspect RATIO meaning that if you have a 180/50/17 your height is not 50 but 90.
With the 190/50/17 you would have 95mm of height at the back, raising the back a miniscule amount. Less swing arm angle & less rake & trail in the front. Remember we are talking MINISCULE amounts here, not sure if you would notice, just things to keep in mind.

Current bikes:
2004 CBR600RR (daily rider, to be raced)
2006 CRF450R
1973 CG150 (off road, future restoration project)
1971 CB100 (being restored)
2006 BWS50 Zuma
Bikes of my (recent) past:
2004 Honda Ruckus, completely built, 55mph on the flats, 60 downhill and/or drafting
2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250
2004 Yamaha R6

CBR600RR Mods:
BMC race filter
Jardine slip on
8987 PENSKE triple adjustable shock
STM slipper clutch
Power Commander III

Gear up or go home!!

If you're gonna run 190s make sure you get the 190/55s the 50s aren't supposed to be on a 5.5 inch rim and will severely hurt your turn in
