New member and a rear tire question.

New to here but have owned my bike for 2 years now
I have a 2009 raider and have some "technical" questions.
I love my ride but now in need of a rear tire, find that the raider has an "odd size" to the tire mfg's.
I want to replace the Metzeler brand OEM rear tire with possibly Dunlop or Michelin. Neither have the exact size.
What are the "rules" / do's and don't when looking at a different size tire on a rim ?
I've asked my local dealer, who I bought the bike from, about getting a Commander II or the Elite 3 installed on my bike. I have yet to hear back from him.
Any advise???
Thanks

Hi Ed, welcome to the forum. What size currently are your tires? Are you wanting to go wider on the rear tire?
