200/16 White Wall Tyre Help Please

Hi guys, I need your help please. I am looking at putting a bigger white wall tyre and rim on the back of my Victory Highball. It is currently running a 16" 3.5 rim with a 150 on it. I am wanting to put a 6" rim on and fit a 200/16 and the only one I can find is the Vulcan one in this link.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007905944...84.m1423.l2649

I am worried though as I want to keep a white wall on my bike but if this is the only tyre choice (besides Vee Rubber which is not happening) what happens if they stop making it? Is it still widely available?

Does anyone know what the real world width measurement is when on the bike? I know it says 200 but it could be 206. I don't want it to rub.

Should I just play it safe and put a 180 on a 5.5 rim so there are a few tyres available?

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Anyone? I have tried to source them in the uk but I was told they are made only for the North American market. Do you think they will make these for a while still?
