I am running the 160 and I like it. It will make the steering a little quicker due to raising the back of the bike. I do mostly pavement but have also done about a 30 mile stretch of hard packed gravel with some nasty bumps and rocks and had no problems with the tires other than BT-020s being slippery in those conditions. I have read about concerns with the 160 possibly being too wide for the rim but for me that has not been a problem in any way. I have a couple thousand miles with the 160.
