Personally, If it were me, I Youre doing all that work to the rear of the bike, its gonna make it look great, what better way to make it even better than by adding a nice fat piece of rubber. That's my opinion ... keep us updated, and post pics when ya get it done

My suggestion is to talk to the Britt folks. They'll probably know what will/won't fit under their fender.

The 230 is too big. I had the Avon 200/70-15 for 2 1/2 years until I went with the mimic 210. With the bike lowered two inches even when I would ride by myself it would rub the inner fender. I ended up taking the lowering kit off because it was getting annoying. I'm 6'2" 220 by the way. I was going to do the 230 as well when I first went with the setup, but even the guys at Britt said not to do it. Just my $.02!
