I have a 2005 KTM 450 I have purchased 5 inch rear wheel for Supermoto setup and my 160 Dunlop tyre rubs I need to know what tyre actually comes up at 160 as the Dunlop is coming up at 168mm I don't want to put a 150 tyre on it as I'm worried it will be as wide as the rim if anyone has some advice for me it would be much appreciated

My SM setup on the 350 rubbed like a mf'er in the rear. Can't remember the tire spec but it ate the mud guard through to the point i just removed it. Since then the tire wore itself in to the point it doesn't rub anymore.

I know guys will take a belt sander to the sidewall where it is rubbing on a new tire, I guess I chose to do so the old fashion way.
