What is the difference between the 175/60/16 and the 195/60/16 the 195 looks closer to the same height as the Dunlop E3. Is it the rim width that is the problem. I'm not tring to start anything I just dont know.

The 195 is the width of the tread across the face.
It would be too wide to fit inside the swing arm.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know all this info but I am learning from the pros. Tire companys dont give you many sizes for a bike do they. Thats why I cann't find the same size as a Dunlop bike tire. I have a friend that ride a VTX 1800 on the dark side that got me to really looking at CT for my wing he said he will never go back.

I know a few that have gone back. Didn't like the feel or the sway. Didn't like to rev the engine higher either and the center stand was harder.

But I don't think they were using the Run Flat tire which would have been more rigid. Not to mention MUCH more expensive.

And of course, they are harder to find as well.
