I was forced into a 170 RoadSmart due to the need for immediate replacement and availability (Versys is my only transpo. & I had a road hazard issue.) There is a slight ::read, barely noticable:: difference with a slower turn in, but other than that, no real difference. As far as the distorted profile argument, if you read the spec sheet on Dunlop's site, you'll find that the 170 is fine for our width wheel, but IMHO, it is not providing any real advantage or disadvantage.
