I have not tried to use a larger diameter wheel on my R*s, but considering how easy it is to bottom out in the rear, even with a Roadwing setup, I don't think I would want to go bigger unless the total diameter of wheel/tire was no more than that of stock. As to width, I use an Austone 175/(78)-16 that uses most of the space. I could keep it from bottoming on my bike if I cranked the pre-load up all the way, but I don't want it that stiff all the time.
As to the front, I do use the stock rear tire size on the front and it stuffs the front fender, but works well. But that is just the stock 16" wheel.
How will I know when I get there if I don't know where I'm going?
