170/80-15 Motorcycle Tires
When checking out the standard tire dimensions for your motorcycle, choosing the right wheel width is a must. The reason why wheel width is critical is that it plays a major role in the overall handling of the motorcycle as well as the durability of the wheel itself. For instance, a wide wheel has more surface area for increased stability. Slimmer wheels are better for off-road drivers, while wide wheels are typically more suited for cruising style. You can get motorcycle tires with a tire width of 170, which will provide a solid amount of stability.
Rim Sizing: 15
The rim size that you select does not just affect how your motorcycle wheels look; it also impacts the tire fit and control. It plays a role in braking and overall motorcycle performance as well. This is why paying special attention to the sizing of your current motorcycle or the motorcycle you want to buy is important. Pay close attention to this when considering 170/80-15" motorcycle tires on sale. One option available in our inventory is a rim size of 15 inches, but many others are available in case you need a different size to match your tire. A great rim-tire fit will decrease the chances of rubbing between the surfaces, which will prolong the wheel's lifespan.
Tire Aspect Ratio: 80
One important ratio to study when looking at 170/80-15" tires online is the aspect ratio. The tire aspect ratio is a measure of wheel width to sidewall height and ranges from zero to 100. When you are working with off-road vehicles and extreme terrain, a low aspect ratio can help provide extra grip. For drive performance vehicles made for long rides such as motorcycles, a high aspect ratio makes the ride a bit more comfortable. An aspect ratio of 80 is fairly high and will decrease the effects of bumps you feel while on a ride.
