x2 on running a 170 or the stock 160. i put a 180/55 on the rear of my 06 650. the rim isnt wide enough to form the tire correctly. it will fit but you end up with a very steep lean angle and the loss of feeling when you get it leaned over real far. i found that it was also more prone to slide in corners.

Why would you need a wider tire people trackday on 160's, wouldnt think you would be riding that aggressive on the street. I can ride a 160 and 180 all the way to there edge and i have never had a problem with grip. (if thats what your worried about)

He is clearly only worried about looks. And paying for more expensive tires for that same reason
