will a 180/55 17 fit on the rear of my 96 Trophy?
BUT - depending on the make/type, it may rub on the chainguard. You
can either remove the wheel and cut a little notch in the plastic
guard, or spin the wheel whilst holding an angle grinder against the
ridge on the side of the tyre.
I've just removed a worn out 180 width and gone back to a 170. Turn-in
& cornering feel much better, even allowing for the fact the 180 was
well squared off.
