Can I change the rear tyre size for my 2002 k1200 lt from a 160/70-17 to a 170/70-17? I was wanting to try the Metezler Roadtec 01 but there is not a 160/70, but either a 150/70 or the 170/70. Thinking the 170 to be better option???

The LT is specked for a 79V rated tire with reinforced sidewalls on the rear. Very few tires meet that specification. I would stick with the size and rating for what is meant to be on an LT. It is the only thing between you and the asphalt.

don't do it, you will regret wasting your money, it will be like riding on a bag of marbles on the arse end.
