Tire question

A 180/55 will do better than 180/60 as far as maintaining the same gearing. 
I haven't noticed anyone complaining about how the 180 fits the stock GPz 
rim but Steve switched to a ZX-11D rear wheel to accommodate wider rubber. 
Other than increased choice of tires, why bother going up from the 170?

Interested in moving up to the 180, but find no mention anywhere on what 
width rim we have.

I remember a time on a car I went from a 245 to a 275, tires were too wide 
for the wheel and it balooned the sidewalls out and looked weird.

Anyone here run a 180? Does it look funny or is our rim wide enough for it?
