So the 215 doesn't rub, great to know (considering dark side later).
But what about 2-up? With extra weight and extra sag, would the different profile and increased width rub then?
I think going 215 width on a 16 inch rim will give you a rub. For the non-F models, I believe 205 is as wide as you want. But YMMV.

I ran a 205/65/16 on my '05 for several years. Last rear tire I ever had to put on the bike. I'm really surprised an 18 fits.

Once you're used to it you won't give it a lot of thought. Like most anything else ya gits used to it.

I looked under the rear fender yesterday. To my surprise, its shape is rather rectangular so a car tire profile won't be any different from a MC tire profile. The width is key, though. Eventually I might grown the balls to go dark side.
