I've finally ordered a 17" Marchesini rear wheel for the Desmo. It should arrive at the end of January. The question is tire size choice. Settling on Dunlop Q2s, choices include 190/50ZR17, 190/55ZR17 and 200/50ZR17. Initial thought is to use the 200/55ZR17, as the original was 200 sized, shim the factory hugger. According to Dunlop, it's surprisingly similar in diameter and width to the 190/55.

Looking for anyone's experience and opinions? Thanks.

Try this, it's a thread I started on an other forum.... I think it answers some of your questions.
