Exclamation how big can i go

does anybody know what the largest rear tire size i can go for a 01 zx6r? right now i have a 180 and lowered 4 inches so i have already lost all of my handeling so why not make it look better by adding a larger rear tire.

a 190 will fit. i had the same bike and know a few with that size rim who squeezed it on. it may rub the chain protector though.

stick with the 180 or replace it with a 170. Adding a bigger tire will make your handling worse as it already is by lowering it 4 inches.
