Hi. I want to put Shinko 777 white walls on my Vulcan 500 which is a half inch wider & half inch taller, approximately. Will that much of a difference cause rubbing issues?

I ride with 110/90-19 on the front and 150/90-15 on the rear. I have had no problems. I do not scrape the pegs like I did with stock size.
Generally, you want to keep the tire size within 5% - 7.5% of the intended size. 150 is just under the 7.5% (7.14% to be exact) range, so it should be fine.
