What does everyone recommend on the size of the rear tire for the new 06 zx-10r if i just do street riding(no track), a 190/55/17 or a 190/50/17? Please respond, the more feedback the better.

stock tire is a 190 55 17, but not many people are rich and able to put $200 plus tires on. 190 50 17 are fine. I have ordered mine some people said that an added shim of 4.5mm to the rear shock makes it identical as a stock 190 55 17, dropping profile drops the rear of the bike. Some people say leave the shims alone and see how you like it, some people say that it is more flickable that way. There is only like 3 choices in the 190 55 17. Michelin power piliots, but they are so soft I can only imagine getting maybe 1600 miles max on them.

about 4.5 mm not much at all but if you want the "stock" feel you should add spacers on top of the shock mount to gain 4.5mm, or try it with no adjusments and see how you like it.
