Correct Tyres For Rims

I have a classic Ducati 900 with rims of 2.15 x 18 front and 2.50 x 18 rear. The optimum tyres for these rims, according to the tyre companies are 90/90 x 18 front and 110/90 x 18 rear, BUT, all the tyre companies specifically recommend for this bike tyres of 100/90 x 18 front and 120/90 x 18 rear, which would probably result in a smaller contact patch than the smaller tyres. What gives?Colin

It's been known for a while that Pirelli an Metzeler are made in same factory so would these two similar triple compound tyres are as good as one n other ?

R1200GS road tyre choice

In recognition that I never stray off the tarmac what would be most appropriate road tyre selection for my 2007 R1200GS taking into account the loading/speed rating etc of the bike?

Tyre recommendation for Tuono RSV4

HiI am looking to replace the original pirelli supercorsa diablo tyres on my 2012 Tuono RSV4 APRC and was looking for something almost as sporty but with improved longevity. I'm looking for something like Bridgestone BT30 but the recommended rear tyre seems to be a 190/50 17 instead of the 190/55 17 as other manufacturers. Would this different profile create a problem with the APRC electronics and is this model tyre considered a good choice?Many thanksSteve

Bridgestone BT020

I need to replace my rear tyre on my VFR800 VTEC. This is the original BT020 - there is an (almost new) BT020 on the front. The Bridgestone website (European) tyre finder application says that this is not the correct tyre, although it lists the BT020 as OE for this bike at the bottom of the BT020 description page. Why is this? Also, what is the difference between a BT020 ""CC" and BT020 "AA" - will either fit my bike.Thanks
