Plus size rear tire

I have a 2014 900 Classic LT and need a new rear tire after only 5,000 miles.
The OEM tire is size 180/70-15 and I'm wanting to know if I can go a little bigger on the width and height of the tire without changing the wheel or any modifications. It looks like there will be enough clearance to put a bigger tire on there. Any suggestions?

You'll find out alot of folks go with the 200/70/15, they will fit with no problem, although for the extra $$$ your only getting 20mm, which is 3/4 of an inch,, some also swear by the 170/80/15 which is taller yet and apparently somehow wider although it should be 10mm narrower, check tire threads on the 900forum....ride on...
