    There is probably very little variation on tire size as far as width versus height ratio unlike car tires. The problem with a 1st gen, and probably all, is that you can not just put a bigger tire on the bike because the tire is so close to the driveshaft housing to begin with.
    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Simply I want the rear of the bike to be a little higher to scrape less.

    What year bike and how much have you aired up the rear shock?

    Well I own both a 1985 and a 1988.

    The 1988 seems a little bit lower than the 1985.

    I have yet to mess witht the suspension. I plan to mount new tires and then ride it and mess with it as I start riding it.

    If there is an issue with the air suspension. Is there a way to have the rear at the max setting permanently?

    "Messing" with the suspension on a Royale is as simple as pushing a button.

    If you select the maximum (HIGH) setting on the CLASS, it should remain at that setting "permanently". (Provided there are no leaks).
