   You need the rear 5" wheel off of an early K1200RS (this is what I
use on my '96 R11RT) or one from an early K1200LT.  I too like running
the ME-880 bias ply tires and this is exactly why I switched.  I think I
paid $175 for 
rear wheel, watch ibmwr.org/marketplace and ebay.
   I'm running the 120X70X17 front and 160X70X17 rear ME-880s

Thanks to all...this is exactly the info I needed.
