    Stock sized tires fit nicely on stock sized rims. Maybe go up one size from stock but that's about as far as you can/should go. There are zero advantages to fat tires and a lot of good reasons to avoid them.

    A quick search on the inter web under “tyre(English spelling) rim sizes” should provide you with a nice table of what is recommended/acceptable/to be avoided.
    Oopps. It may pay to preface the request with “motorcycle” otherwise, you’ll get a pile of car-related stuff.

    Easy! Don't use the stock rims.

    Why?
    because anything other then a proper tyre and rim combination is dangerous.
