17 inch front tire options

I’ve got a BMW R1200r with a DMC sidecar and a front wheel extender.  It’s eaten through the original Michelin Pilot Road 5 in no time and I can’t find a 17 inch front sidecar tire.  I’m considering an ME888 due to its potential tread life, but would love to know if there are better options. Wheel is Specd for a 120/70-17 but there is room for something larger in the fenderwell.

Others have used 17" rear tires - do a search here and on ADV forum - hacks -
