Metzler Tires

I am interested in putting a Metzeler Tourance 150/70 r17 on the rear. How much will that raise the back? I am sure i could figure this out if i dug out my old math books. Hopefully someone knows this off hand.

Just wait for our GURU Invader or dig your maths book.

About .4 inch; assuming both tires are actually the size they a supposed to be. It is unlikely that they are; the actual change could be from zero to three quarter inch higher. The only way to know is measure both when installed and aired to spec.
