thanks for input, its not that I want more power, I think the R3 has very decent power, and im planning to keep it and then buy a bigger bike later on. but I was just planning to switch it up a little by getting some used "R6" wheels or so and having them powder coat. but if it cant be done oh well, im very happy with my R3
It's for looks. Some people really like the wider tire look. If they're gong to go with a 160 or wider tire then they should upgrade to the wider wheel so that the shape of the tire stays as it was meant to be and doesn't affect handling adversely.What does it do apart from rob horsepower?
Not to mention, a normal rider will see the front end and be like "budget bike" right away lol.Your r3 will look cool to the general public, but the only thing other riders are going to see is your massive chicken strips in the back. No matter how hard you try to rub them off, you'll run out of front tire long before you get near the edge in the rear.
Would be cool for a show bike though.
