100 is the factory size. many upgrade to a 110 to help correct for the inaccurate speedo. either will work fine, only difference is the speedo will read slightly faster with smaller tire

It'll fit but your speedo will read higher than normal and you may have slightly twitchier handling. Any way to cancel and change the order? Usually tire stores online are pretty forgiving

the 110 is a wider cross section, but with the same aspect ratio, so it's a slightly wider and proportionally taller tire. This means it is ever-so-slightly more stable (probably imperceptible to most riders) and spins fewer revolutions per mile due to the greater circumference, so it will report a slightly lower speed to the speedometer (which reads high from the factory, so the "oversized" 110 tire corrects for that slightly)

I forgot 110 was the oversize, but the 100 will serve you just fine and you'll likely never notice the difference, so you have no need to worry.

the 110 is wider/bigger. many on here believe it to be an upgrade. I myself like the 110 better.

the 100 is skinnier/smaller. also the stock size.
