Many of us run the Michelin Pilot Road 2 in the 190 for the rear and stock size for the front. Should be on the list IMO.

Filling in the blanks for the rear tire options, is this all correct?

Michelin Road Pilot2 190/50ZR17 (73W)
. Tire Width - Static: 190mm = 7.48"
. Tire Width - In Use: 203mm = 7.99"
. Tire Diameter - Static: 622mm = 24.48"
. Tire Diameter - In Use: 636mm = 25.04"
. Tread Depth: 7.0mm (9/32") = over 1/4"
. Rim Range: 5.5" - 6.0" (6" preferred)
. Capacity: 805 pounds (365kg)
. Weight of Tire: 00.00 pounds

Michelin Road Pilot2 190/55ZR17 (75W)
. Tire Width - Static: 190mm = 7.48"
. Tire Width - In Use: 203mm = 7.99"
. Tire Diameter - Static: 642mm = 25.28"
. Tire Diameter - In Use: 656mm = 25.83"

Note 1:
This Michelin catalog data provides 'growth' dimensions too,
so both 'static' and 'in-use' information included above.

Note 2:
Catalog indicates these tires are for 'one-up' riding (no passenger, limited load).

Looks great, thanks. The lawyers rule the pits at Michelin I guess as the Shinko and other brands have similiar load limits.

So for a passenger with the Michelin Pilot Road 3 one should go with the 55 profile?

i haven't seen anyone else listing that as a fitment, will it fit?

Thanks!

See the note in that post above. Michelin says not for passenger duty. But yes it will
physically fit (compare to other tire heights) but might not like lowered suspensions.
Its indicated as a rider-only tire. I don't know why, notice the capacities of other tires.

Probably BUT since I didn't see where they publish the tire's actual dimensions NIGHT DRAGON , Motorcycle Tyres - PIRELLI INTERNATIONAL probably smart to call them and get the actual dimensions. Just get the data to fill-in the chart:

Pirelli Night Dragon 200/55ZR17
. Tire Width (in use): 000 mm = 0.00"
. Tire Diameter (in use): 000 mm = 00.0"
. Tread Depth: 0/00"
. Rim Range: 0.00" - 0.00"
. Capacity: 000 pounds
. Weight of Tire: 000 pounds






will a pirelli night dragon 200/55-zr 17 fit on a 2006 ?

Nope that's not what this thread is about. I'm not qualified to manage it. Sounds like you are tho, you should start a CT thread and manage it. It would give a place where guys running CT's could vouch for them so if a member has trouble on a CT there's members to go back to for help.

you forgot all the car tires that will fit on there
