Re: stock tire search
Look on the side for a raised block with four digits; it's usually next to the U.S. DOT tire identification number. The first two indicate the week of its manufacture, and the last two are for the year. For example, 1702 would indicate the tire was manufactured in April, 2002. Prior to 2000, there were only three digits, with the last one indicating the year

No, go by the original recommended size for your bike. Now that being said - if you want to modify your bike and run a wider tire on your bike I personally can say the 180/55 is a good choice. I am running one on my M2 cyclone. Less expensive and easier to find tires for.
Thank you for using Fixya, Raymond.
I would like to inform you that you can find the correct front and rear tire pressure of your Triump on your owner's manual. However, you can also check the average tire pressure on the sidewall of the rubber tire.
You could make anything "fit", but thats also "custom". Maximum tire sizes are dictated by the rim size. For the 19" rim 100/90/90, for the 21' rim MH90-21. Some tire styles "look" larger than the stock Dunlop tires. Look at Avon or Continental tires.
I believe it is a 160 stock so you could go 180 using a stock rim, making sure that you check the clearances underneath, especially where the top shock mounts meet the fender if it is going to be close it will be there. If you want to go bigger than that there are a number of kits to put massive tires on the back. Changing a tire to more than 200 WILL change the handling of the bike
It is safe to ride ans long as you do not go over the rated tire speed, for insatnce a S rated tire qill be safe at 220 miles per hour, so keep in mind the tire rating and the speed you may be travling at ok?
i called a place ( hogpro.com) about wheels for my 07 fxdwg and talked to the guy there. he said a 180 will fit with no problems and a 200 will fit in the swingarm and fender, you just have to center the wheel and deal with the turn signal brackets etc. Does anyone know where i can get a set of rear struts that are just plain with no recess for the turn signals that will bolt on to the stock bike? I am gonna try the 200/55-18 this winter on a 18x 5.5" wheel.
Fairing is from a later bike looks like FE fairings with the side air inlet and the decals are definitely not stock and I would guess custom made.
Do a google search for images of your bike and you can see stock. Other than the Dunlop decal on the seat, (what happens if you use Michelins?) it looks fine IMHO.,,,
