The way I understand it is they are both the same, just the way the manufacturer measures them differs
Dunlop 80/100 = Michelin 90/90 :) :D

Yea, Michelin runs some weird numbers. Their rear 140/90-18 is really like a 120/80-18 from Dunlop. Make sure you run the 140'S since the knob sizes are larger than on the smaller sizes. :)
