I have been running Michelin Pilot 2 Tires. I'm interested in the Pilot 3 or Pilot 4.

I'm needing new tires. I'm having trouble finding a rear tire 170/60 ZR 17
I do want Michelins. I have tried others, I like the Michelins.
Will I have to go to 160/60 ZR17?
What has others been doing?
Thanks for the advice.

I run a 180/55 on the back of my 907. Previous tyre was a Bridgestone, current one a Continental. I have had no clearance issues. It may not turn in as quickly as a 170/60 but I'm buggered if I can tell the difference.
