It seems a 120/100 would be 120mm tall and a 140/80 would be 112mm tall.
I guess the 140/80 would shorter.
I guess I could go for 100/100. That would surely give clearance.
The size 120/100 gives the width (120 mm) and height (120) as a percentage (100%) of the width. On a 140/80, the height would be 80% of 140 or 112. Changing tire aspect ratios can alter speed/distance measurements particularly if the change is on the wheel used for measurements.
