190 on a 5.5 considerations

after some gearing and geometry testing it was noted that a 190 on a 5.5 has a much larger circumfrence than the 180 in the center and the sides are almost identical.rpm to lean angle is very noticable in comparison. and turn in was eye watering. since the rear was jacked up in the air by an xtra 200mm i am lowering my fork tubes to reduce load on the front during trail brakin and stablize the bike a bit. also straight line gearing was affected and a larger sprocket is being considered. bottom line is rim width only will change mid corner geometry but the tire affects geometry everywhere else including gearing. if a 6 in rim was used .gearing ,turn in ,and ride height geometry would have remained unaffected. any thoughts?
