It's possible but not optimal. A 180 section rear tire should be on a 5 1/2" 
wide rim. Putting it on a 5" rim (GPZ) alters it's profile. Many here have 
done it without a problem. I think the "pointier" profile would cause it to 
wear faster but I don't know for sure. I run a 180 section rear but I have 
fitted a proper 5 1/2" wide wheel from a ZX11.
