Getting ready to buy a new set of E3 tires for my 09 Wing. Does anybody have any positives or negatives to going to the 180/70/16 size over the stock 180/60/16?

On early gl 1800 the speedo is off buy about 4 mph, putting the 70 rear tire corrects that, if you use your side stand a lot the bike will lean more with the 70 series, and you might have trouble rotating the rear tire to check it because it will be on the ground. I think the weight rating is higher on the 70 series. There is really no big advantage unless your speedo is off and you want to correct that. Your odometer is also off by about 4 miles every 100, Every 100 miles you ride your odometer will show any where from 3 3/4/ to 4 miles more.
