Ordering Diablo Corsa's front size question - November 19, 2007, 12:55 AM

I'm about to order a set of Diablo Corsa III's, they have the rear in the same OEM spec size 180/55/ZR17


however, the front OEM spec is 120/60/ZR17 and the size I see on the ordering website list 120/65/ZR17...will the 65 size fit on my OEM front wheel?

With the taller front the proper front ride height will be altered if you like the front turn in behavior the way it is. I would suggest lowering the front of the bike by a a quarter of an inch to make it perfect. But its likely you may not even notice--but if you notice something you don't like with this new tire I would check it.
The taller profile will make initial turn in slightly harder and the increased ride height (if you don't change it) may reduce front end traction under power slighly due to increased weigh transfer to the rear.
