I just put new tires on my 07 and am wanting to swap on 12" oem shocks instead of the 13s that are on there. My worry is this...

Dunlop D402s are 25.71" diameter with 11/32" tread depth

Michelin 140/90B16 i put on is 26.61" diameter and 5/16" tread depth

So i actually have a tire that is .9" taller. Is it going to be possible to bring it down that 1" im wanting with no ill effects? I know sidewall clears all the way around so no worries there, just dont know if it will hit bein that the tire is almost an inch taller anyways.

Thanks ahead of time

Your math is suspect. Should be .9" not .09". Only 1/2 of that is above the axle centerline. That gives you .45 " larger. Should not be a problem with 12" shocks.
