Yes, that is the correct size. What tire did you get?

After tire is mounted on the rim it will go in okay. It will be slightly easier to install on bike if you let air out of tire. Did you lay bike down to remove wheel?

Is the center stand all the way out/down? A piece of 2x4 under center stand will make a little more room for installing wheel/tire. If you have wheel/tire at proper angle it will slide in fairly easily, even the wider 205 size fits okay.

I guess you're saying under the center stand when it's out all the way.?

If you find that it would be helpful to have someone to talk you through getting the tire installed on the bike, send me a PM and I will send you my phone number.

The tire combo fits just fine. Take your time and line up the lug bolts and it will slide right on. If you get perplexed, take a break and give it another try.
The easiest way is your wing on its side. There are videos that show how to do it.:smile2:

The old trick... empty plastic trash bag over the tire.. helps it slide up into place.:wink2:
