Default White Wall tires

hello, I have a 99 V92C. Still has the factory tires on it and they are shot. I have the aluminum wheels as well. The bike has an old school flame paint job and I always thought white walls would look sweet on it. They don't or i can't find any in the right size. Is there a size I can change to? Has anyone done this? Thanks

As close to stock as possible, I forget what they are at the moment

There aren't a lot of people on here that own or have owned your model so if possible please save them the hassle of trying to find the OEM sze and post what you have on the bike. There are several websites that will allow you to compare sizes to find out which size should retrofit but without knowing what size to look for nobody can get very far.

Sorry for the delay, I couldn't find my Dennis Kirk I needed for a converson chart.

For the front (MT90B16) MT is equivilent to 130mm or 5" so you should be able to go with a 130mm which wouldn't add anything to the width. The best fit would probably be 130/90H-16. The Avon AM41 comes with Wide White Walls in the MT90 HB-16 WWS.

For the rear (160/80HB-16) 160 is equivilent to 6.25". If you wat to go wider you should be able to go to a 170 which would add another .25" to the width. If you go 10 wider you'll also have to go down 10 on the aspect; 160/80 would change to 170/70. This one is the hard one because I can't find any WW rear tires over 150 wide.

I didnt necessarily want wider rear...Just trying to find a WW close to stock height etc. I just hate when the spedo's and odometers are off LOL. I don't recall which wheel is the speedo feed. I also want to make sure it fits width wise. Hence the question if anyone had done this before on the first gen alloy wheels. Thanks for the help...If kirk has some that would suit my needs, they're only 25 miles from my door.

According to kirk, the tire sizes should be the same as mine, at least that's what they have listed, same as mine. You are the person I am looking for . could you possibly get the tire sizes off your white walls, and post a picture maybe, please? That would be great. How is your spedo, is it off at all?
