I was thinking about switching up wheels from the super lights and having the f3 10spokes as an alternate set. How would the 5.5 rear rim do with a 190/55 tire? This would be for a 1000R, so I wouldn't want a 180/55 on it. I already bought the standard F3 5.5 rear rim, but if the rim size is not optimal with the 190/55, I may sell it and will have to find the 6" version, like the 1090R.

Thoughts?

A 190 will be pinched in at the rim, changing the profile from the optimal design. It will work, but you will have compromised the tires handling characteristics
