Was reading something on the JJ about how avon MK2s are a "taller" tire. has anyone had one and switched to something else and how much drop(inches) did it create on your bike? Is there much variation in tires? I thought they were all pretty much the same, but then again I don't really know anything.

Inflated tire sizes are not really precise across different brands and models, and installed aspect ratio can vary with different rims. It makes guesstimating an asspain.

Best to find a pic you like of an installed tire or see it in person. I've no interest in getting close to the ground but someone here should have a recommendation.

Over at 7mw he has a common tire chart. Yeah I've use those avons they're a good inch taller than most, I think it was more like two vs a Shinko.
