150/70 vs 150/60

I know you guys are happy with your 160/60 tires on a 4.25" rim, but I won't put on an oversized tire based on previous experience.

So to my question. It seems several manufacturers are only offering 150 tires in 70 series. Has anyone tried one of these 70 series tires?

I went with the Pirelli Sync tires with a 120/160 setup. I think the 160 looks great on the bike and handles very well. I can lean the bike down to pegs and have total confidence in doing so.

150 vs 160

I think the 150 will turn better.I've got 4500 mi. on my stock tires,maybe because i mainly ride 40 mi to work on the freeway.I wish i could retire and ride canyons and trails more !

I just put SM wheels on my TE610. 5in Excel rear with qualifier 160. The chain rubs on the tire. Not sure if the 160 Pilot would rub. The rubbing doesnt seem to be too bad though.
