Any tire experts

The OE front tire on my bike is discontinued. The OE size 110/80 V16. I cant find the size any where. The closest size I could find is 110/90 V16 or 120/80 V16. What size should I use so I will be safe and not feel a difference?
Thanks for any help.

Looks like someone should have been at the tire seminar.

What about going with a Z rating?

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

If its a penny for your thoughts and you are putting in your two cents, hey someone's making a penny.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
