Does Anyone Understand What Tire Sizes Mean???????

19 to 18" tire will make the biggest difference in handling. More rubber sidewall means more walk and more flex in turning.
The width of the tire is the second most important handling concern. Too wide a tire, and the bike will not turn as well. Too narrow a tire, and you get less hookup and it probably would feel "floppy" in a turn.
A 130 michelin is a 110 Dunlop, Bridgestone, Maxxis, ect....

Now regarding tires
Here is a good chart for you to determin that for yourself. But keep in mind a bigger tire doesnt mean more traction, it could hinder the bike in many ways.
Such as Power to the ground, cornering and speed. Its called drag.
I know that will start a debat, well what about dragsters, race tires and so forth. well the quick anser is Application / HP
It may b a little big
if you go by the chart
