Rear tire

I know this isn't about a 750 but I thought I'd try. Anyone know what is the widest rear tire I can run on my 96 Vulcan 1500 L without any modifications? I have looked in the 1500 forums but no luck and I'm not very patient. Thanks in advance.

The Metzler ME880 charts in my Dennis Kirk catalog says the stock tire size is 150/80H 16" for all VN1500 models from 1996 and later. Also says that the upgrade rear size is 160/80H 16" for all years. This is about the only info that I could find, just glad I remembered seeing this when I was looking at tires in the past.
