## Are wider motorcycle tires safer?

Not necessarily. Safety is a result of friction and grip. The higher the friction, the more the tire will grip the surface. But for any given weight of the motorcycle on that given wheel, spreading it out over a wider area will reduce friction, even though the contact area is higher.

## How far can you lean a motorcycle over?

## What TYRE size is 90 90?

90 is the width of tyre in millimeters from one sidewall to the other; 100 is aspect ratio of the tyre i.e. the ratio of the cross-section to its width; 10 is the diameter of the wheel in inches; 53 is the tyres load index, that is, the tyres maximum carrying capacity.

130/90B16

## What determines tire height?

The sidewall height can be calculated by multiplying the ratio (70 or 0.70) by the width (225); for example, 225 millimeters x 0.70 = 157.5 millimeters. The number 15, or R15 is the diameter of the wheel (or rim) given in inches.
