I've heard people going to 150 and maybe 160 on stock rim? Why though? What makes you feel you need more tire? Just looks?

I think some of the fastest track guys here run a 150 - they need more tire because they're scrubbing the edges on the 140's IIRC. Unless you're rossi I doubt you need more tire other than looks - Although I'm debating 150/60 myself because the S21's and their dual compound seem to be a nice fit for commuting & twisty roads that's hard to get in single compounds.

Well this sucks just talked to the Bridgestone north america rep who stated they don't import the S21 150/60's and 110/70's into the US... Sad day.

I can scrape my rearsets (aftermarket, lift up and back as far as they go) with a 140/70. You don't "need more tire"

See if you can find out the difference in weight of the tires... That might be enough to help shed a different light on this thought.
