I'm still looking for new tires and want white walls. In the 130/90-16 size I have a ton of options. In the 140/90-16, which is what my stock rear is, I have only a few. I was thinking of running 130/90-16 in the back as well as the front.

My only concern is that it will be too narrow and look goofy.

Thanks guys.

Why will they last longer?
Havent you noticed that all the wide tires only wear out in the 2" of the center.A 130 has more contact patch than say a 150 tire,All the Harleys that I have owned ran a 130 and would last 12,000 miles or more.My V2K,with a 200 rear tire only last 6000 miles,I now run a car tire for that reason,and have them last 30,000 miles or more(I am on my 2nd one).The stock tire was not worn except for the 2" in the center.My Harleys barely had any unused tread on the edges.
