    I'm looking to replace the rear tire on my '04 ElectraGlide. The original is a Dunlop 402 MU85-16. I would like to replace it with the Dunop Elite 3 MU90-16. I'm kinda short - 5'-3" and have lowered the bike an inch. Is the MU90 any taller than the MU85? I don't want to put on a taller tire and lose part of my lowering. Any help with this or other tire recommendations?? Thanks!!

    Those two sizes indiicate two different aspect ratios. Aspect ratio is the relationship of width to height. Go on the Dunlop website and you will see an explanation of these sizes along with the aspect ratio represented by them.
