Is this a 5.5" or 6" wheel?

Yes maybe a dumb question but wanted to be sure before I order 190/50 for my Marchesini rims.
Currently has 180/55 on them. Looks like 6" yes?

TIA

Measurement for wheels is inside to inside.

Should be stamped on the inside of the wheel, but yes they are measured inside to inside.

Just curious why you'd opt for a 190/50 after a 180/55? Personally, on a bike with sporting intent, I can't help thinking 50 profile tyres should be damn near illegal, they're just shocking things.

Yea, did you measure the swingarm too, is it the very special extended type?

Just put the 180/55's, you can thank me later.

Should have mentioned it was for a 916. 190/50 is what is stated in the manual. 180/55 is listed as an alternative for when they run out of 190/50s I guess....
