Panasport has 14" and 15" wheels specifically made for the Tiger. They have the
proper offsets for fenders and suspension. The rear wheel width is greater than
the front, and the offset is different as well, making them non interchangeable.
But you don't "rotate" radials, anyway.
Tire widths are 60 series for the 14" wheels, which are a lot more available in
good speed and stick ratings than your 13's, but not as many as you may desire.
More, of course, are in the ST category. Both Pirelli, Dunlop, and Yoko have
offerings in various performance ranges.
The 15" wheels take 50 profile tires, which are more expensive, have a greater
range of style and performance available, and are generally more expensive. The
over-all appearance of these wheels is excellent, and they are custom selected
drilled to order, so don't expect any 'in-stock'.
The balance in looks and performance for the 15" 50 series and the 14" 60 series
is up to your needs.
Just make sure that when they are ordered they are specified for the Tiger, and
the manufacturer will pick the right numbers.
You may want to consider a different profile for your front wheels (say 65 x 14)
to make the steering a bit easier than with the realty wide profile of the 60
series, depending on your needs, and tire stick.
