I have an 87 750 and I believe you have the same back rim that I used to...3.5x18. I put a 160 60 18 on and although it looked cool it was a complete waste. the wide rim on the skinny tire completely distorted the tires natural shape and let a lot of the rubber towards the sidewall get wasted. I had no ill handling trouble but it looked kind of funny still having the blueish color on the edges where the tire never broke in...I since upgraded to a later model rim that accepts a wider tire.

My 86 has a 4inch rim, and I've got a 160 on it. I personally would'nt go any wider, just due to the fact I belive the 160 was originally sized for a 4.5 inch rim. Dont quote me though.
