When I got my 195/55/16 I measured it before mounting and thought, “ No way in hello.” It was definitely too wide, but after mounting it and airing it up, it fit easily. It was 1/2-3/4” narrower than off the rim. Okay, it didn’t fit easily but it has 1/4-3/8” on each side of the 1200 swingarm. I’m quite sure it would fit the 1500 swingarm but would interfere above. Mine has a top mounted fuel tank so I have less trouble.
