My Dunlop Sportmax 120/70/17 edges touch my forks on either side a bit. Is this tire known for being a bit wider? My buddy's 120/70 michelen on his KTM seemed thinner, but i couldn't get my crappy micrometer on there well enough to tell for sure...

I expect you have a converted enduro. If that is the case, I would advise you get a new set of triples (I believe that the TC and SM are wider and have the same width). A friend of mine ruined a perfectly good set of forks by rubbing them against his front tire. At the time I also spotted a set of second hand triples for 150 quid which he refused to buy. Now it's a lot more costly.

Mine is converted, but its a converted TC. It is rubbing only enough to leave alittle black tire residue on the fork when its compressed. I have wiped it off many times to check for signs of damage, which there isn't any.
