That will have your speed incorrectly shown in the dash as its a larger circumference. You will travel further per revolution so you will be seeming to go slower.

I find them fine. Not a hard ride and the Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres are long lasting (got 40k out of my rears), and are priced really well. I found National Tyres to be cheapest especially if purchased via a cashback site. (I use TopCashback.co.uk)
