So curiosity got the best of me and I decided to check the OEM wheel width stampings on my 2018 z125 wheels (plus I could not find this info in any Google searches). The front is 2.5 inches wide and the rear is 3.5 inches wide. It would appear that the z125 front wheel is a quarter inch more narrow than the front wheel on a Honda Grom. I think this explains why the front tire spec is so much different for the z125 compared to the Grom.

OK, so stats aside, what does the z125 ride like with a wider profile tire on the front? I am assuming the tire contact patch is a little different and it would loose some precision in the corners - but I would like to hear from someone who swapped out tires to find out for sure.
