Rear tire:MT90 a/t

I have a 2009. I am looking at the Pirelli MT90 A/T to replace my rear tire. The only 17 I can find is the 120/90-17. Is this the correct tire considering the stock tire is a 130/80-17. What is the difference between the stock size and the 120/90-17 performancewise. Thanks.

Load index is a little lower than stock (64 vs 65 or 617lb vs 639lb). Other than that, I can't see why it wouldn't fit. Rim might be a little wide for ideal fitment, but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Tires aren't like marriage, they won't last forever.

Thanks.

If only I could get tires to last as long as my first marriage(2 1/2 years), I'd be doing good.

Who cares how long your tire lasts bro?! They don't talk back and you can get a new one for cheap! 😉
