Thanks everyone, puts my mind at rest. I think I'd only be game to go to 16s. 17s with rubber bands might stress the suspension on the 90 (and my backside) a bit too much. But there does seem to be a good choice in OEM alloy wheels out there for reasonable cost.
So 16x6.5 with what size tyres will fit OK?
And to show how long I've been out of the saddle, what is s decent and sympathetic tyre for a 90, used sparingly and relatively gentlyn on potholed NSW roads?
