Default Will this tire fit?

Hello, my V92 rear tire is getting thin. A friend today gave a brand new tire, prolly for a Rocket, but it may fit.

Stock tire is a 160-80-16, the tire he gave me is a 180-70-16/
Here is what I found for measurements
Current tire is the stock size. Has anyone done this, or does it look like it may fit? Thanks. Its not the tire I want, but its free. I really want to do Wide Whites but they dont come in my sizes either

Current Tire ----- New Tire Difference
Diameter inches (mm) 26.08 (662.4)--- 25.92 (658.4) -0.16 (-4) -0.6%
Width inches (mm) 6.3 (160)- 7.09 (180) 0.79 (20) 12.5%
Circum. inches (mm) 81.93 (2080.99) - 81.43 (2068.42) -0.5 (-12.57) -0.6%
Sidewall Height inches (mm) 5.04 (128) 4.96 (126) -0.08 (-2) -1.6%
Revolutions per mile (km) 773.35 (480.25)- 778.05 (483.17) 4.7 (2.92) 0.6%

Wheel is not wide enough to fit that tire properly, but it will go on. Not a big fan of the idea. My life is worth the price of a new tire

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way
