rear tire time

I have been researching a wider rear tire. Some say don't do it. Some say it's a great change. I am willing to try anything once. What would be the best 200 series choice for my 1100 custom? A Metz ME880, a Dunlop e-3 or an Avon? Or should I not do a 200 series at all? Maybe a 190? All opinions will be accepted! I currently have the 170 stock size. Also to note, I will be putting the pcs lowering kit on (hopefully with the pc seat and progressive rate spring). Also still looking for information on a 19" or 21" front conversion. Thanks!

tire width

I think when it comes to a wider tire the drive shaft is what you need to watch out for.

Some discussion on the bigger tire. They talk about the way the bigger tire fits the rim.
