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

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
