Will Shinko 170/60/17 tires fit

I'm thinking of putting the Shinko 705 on my bike. The stock rear tire is 180/55/17 and rim size,e is 5.50x27. The closest Shinko size is 170/60/17 and recommended for 4.5" rims. Has anyone tried this size on our rims? Will there be any issue because the our bike rims are larger than the recommended size?

170mm is about 6.7" so there isn't any issue there. The sidewalls will be a bit more square which may change the tread profile, and may affect handling.

I'm more worried about it not fitting on the rim properly. Would that be a concern?

Yep, they work. Ive had them on from 6,000-11,000 miles. Got them because my road to my house is 2 miles of gravel. Well, I wish I hadn't. They look cool and give some grip in loose dirt or grass or whatnot, but truthfully I never found a situation where I needed the tread. The gravel road is irrelevent, nothing gives more traction in hard pack gravel even when its wet, touring sport tires are more than adequate to handle. The real bummer is losing out on delicious handling from scorpion trail tires to a clunky cloddy uber bland tire which provides such horrible results on pavement. After the last trip out they got ripped pretty hard up over and back over the mountain and on the final river run down to the coast they began to vibrate quite badly to the point I was weary of a failure. I stopped and checked pressures and pumped the front up from 36 to 42. (Manufacturer spec for front and rear is 42 psi. I talked to their sells rep personally and he said theyre ok but you must run them at high pressure or you will have a failure, I think coming off the rim). It helped a tash but they're still highly vibratory amd theyre getting replaced with Pirelli Angel GT's in the coming weeks. They also burn a hole in the rear bender. Actually the orginal broke after a stone was picked up in the tread and broke a fender mount which lets the fender droop to burn on the tire. The replacemt fender now has a hole in it but all mounts are intact. Id run this tire only for offroad, or on a proper 450 dualsport. Hyperstrada is a pavement pounder in the most glorious way, and she needs proper street rubber.
