Anyway he is sitting here telling me I need to switch to a 190 but I keep explaining to him I will lose handling. I want him to read this post so hell stop2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

The answer is to stay with the tire size that was on the bike when manufactured. All manufacturers go to extreme lengths to determine all variations of design for the optimal performance of the machine they are providing the customer. In other words, changing the tire size will negatively affect the performance and handling. A perfect example is all the custom V Twins with the 280 to 330 tires on them. If you try to corner a bike with these is almost impossible at any speed. The wider the tire the harder to turn.

Not much up on your style of bike. My is just a Schwinn and it is pretty old. Havent rode for quite sometime as the bike has a weight limit of 400 pounds, so I have to lose a little weight then learn how to ride again.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4
