Ive got the 110 size dunlop 952 on the back at the moment, but the thing seems to spin a lot more without hooking up.
I wouldn't think that it would make such a big difference, but it does.
If my bike was stock (Ive got hotcams, highcomp piston, pc pipe, vortex ignition...) the 110 would have been fine.
My thought is just try one. If you don't like it, you can always go back.

im not good enough to notice the ill effects a 120 tire produces nor the effects of the ultra heavy duty tubes with slime either.
with all that my main goal is to lower the possibility of getting a flat on the trail

I put a 120 on my bike the last time I got new tires. I have really stiff suspention and the 120 definitely gets a way better grip than my old 110. The front end comes up easily when I want it too now instead of just spinning like the 110 did.
I've always ran the 110 and I have never had a problem getting the front end up. In fact sometimes its hard to keep it down.

One negative and I think others have mentioned it the fact that its harder to lean over and it has a tendancy to stand up under throttle while riding in a rut. Most of that went away with cranking some preload into the rear spring, but some is still there. The 110 didn't really have that tendancy even with too much sag.

My next tire will be the 120. I think that will be perfection combined with the 51 tooth rear sprocket...great for the tight technical terrain of the mountains.
