The difference in height is only 6 mm if you chose the 170/60 like I did, this tire is also slightly wider which will make the bike a little higher on the side stand, but by a negligible amount. The 170 is the width in millimeters and the 60 is called the aspect ratio, it is 60 percent of the width. I did notice a slight difference when riding but I got used to it. When I put it on the stand though I really did not notice the difference. Also with the deep tread on the Shinko, after a bit of wear it should be down to the height of other tires with less tread, like the stock. You'll see bigger problems with the side stand when trying to leave it on a slight slope than with a tire that is less than a 1/4 inch higher when new.Just wondering if my center stand and kick stand will work if I get the shinko 705. Front size matches perfectly but the rear is taller by 10 I believe.
