Thumbs down (Query) Difference Between a [100/90-16] + [110/90-16] Front Tire

Hello, I have recently purchased a Pirelli Sport Demon Bias [130/90-16] as a rear tire replacement.
My Front Tire (currently a 100/90-16) is needing to be replaced soon as well, since I have a Pirelli in the back, I opted to go for a Front Tire of the same style.

(Query) | The price difference between the [100/90-16] and [110/90-16] tire is noticeable;

A) Is there a difference in riding between the two tires? (Handling, etc.)
B) [or] The change so little that the tires will perform identical to each-other?
C) [or] The answer is different for each manufacturer, and requires a 'hands-on' approach to see if there is a difference?

~Thank you for your time.

Can anyone give me any help on this matter?
I understand the numbers refer to measurements, but I'm curious about the riding difference.
Please let me know if any further clarifications i needed.

~Thanks again

The 110 is obviously wider. That being said, I wouldn't record going wider than stock tire size on a 250. The handling is going to be worse, not necessarily enough, but noticeable. I am not 100% positive, but you might end up rubbing the tire, but that usually happens in the read if its too wide.

Thank you for replying
That's a good point, Ill have to check to verify the size allowable.

The 110 is 10mm wider than the 100. If they're the same profile the 110 is also 9mm taller.

In this case they both have a 90% profile. That means that the height of the tyre is 90% of the width.

Check for clearance if you want to fit a bigger tyre. The extra height might cause problems with the fender.

You will have slightly slower handling, partly from the extra width of the tyre and partly from the change to steering geometry from the extra height. The difference will be slight.
