Why are some tires skinny and some so fat? Ari Henning of Motorcyclist Magazine lays out the difference between the two in the latest edition of the magazine's MC Garage video series. This isn't the typical video for the series, but I thought it was a cool video nonetheless. This is something many new riders have probably wondered about and Henning does a good job of explaining things without getting too specific.
You could spend hours reading all about different tires and how they impact the way your motorcycle rides. If you don't have time to do so, just check out the video below. And remember, the best size tires for your motorcycle are the ones recommended in your owner's manual.
