if you use a low ridge tire design the overhang on the tire wont be very significant, and should fit a smaller rim easier and properly.

The corsa III I use now makes the rear look like a 170 but it really is a 190... Where as the design of the Mich PP flares out from the rim and makes it look like a monster.

should have done a 'Latte' theme instead of a corona theme.

Only tejano bars will give you props and free booze rollin' like that. I have a corona jacket someone borrowed out there somewhere that will fit the bike to a T... but then again I need it back before you borrow it first hahaha

Your bike was designed for a 180, so you should stick to that size tire with that size wheel.

Just put a 6" wheel on it and do it right Track Star!
FWIW, my Duc comes stock with a 190 on a 5.5 wheel.
