150/70 R17 instead of 140/80 R17

Is mounting a 150/70 R17 tire instead of the designated 140/80 R17 on a 3.50-17 rim much of an issue? I have a pile of new tires for my F800GS that I want to use up on my F700GS.

I ran this tire calculator, but I am mostly concerned about fitment.


PS The 90/90 21 fronts wil be listed soon.

I run a 3.50 rear and have used a 150. Gets pretty round but not an issue. Woody also approves it
