Gen 3 SV Rear Compatible with 180/55 Tire

I have multiple bikes and extra tires in the garage that I hoard when deals pop up. The front already works for me as the SV now runs 120/70 stock which matches my other bike. But what about the rear? My other bike runs a 180/55.

It would be great if a matching 180/55 would work as well. I've been told that the wheel width increased on the new gen SV's to 5" from 4.5". Is this enough to hold the bead for a 180/55 tire?

Checking to see if anyone has tried this yet.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say you'd need at least a 5.5 inch rim.
