Question Hello guys! Question about rear tire size.

Hello I got my first bike a week ago... I picked up a 2009 Yamaha FZ6R with 10k miles. It needs a rear tire and what’s on it now is a 180/55/zr17... I looked online and it says it doesn’t fit specs for my bike on J&P Cycles. I’m gonna get a Shinko 005 to match the front tire cause the person has a Michelin Pilot on the rear now. What do y’all think about running with the 180/55 like what’s on it now? It runs great for me at the moment other than needing new tread lol


The bike will handle much better with the stock-size rear tire, which is 160/60ZR17.
