Stupid question

This might be redundant but im just wondering, has anyone tried a 200 series tire on the rear? If so, what were the side effects positive or negative?

Im asking because a friend has a set of barely use sport attacks and is going to give them to me if the tires work.

Re: Stupid question

I tried a 200 series Pirelli on my k1200r and only had about 4 mm clearance to the swing arm. Radials don't expand but I worried about a stone getting caught between the two
