If I understand you correct, then, the profile of this tyre is quite tall compared to 19" nylogrip, so that the outer diameter measures the same when the bike stands? And the ride quality would be less harsher due to existance of more rubber.
Which 18" rim do you suggest to go along with this tyre?

Yes you're correct. There are only benefits if you go for this tyre & wheel size combo. Only side effects would be that you might lose a little less on FE as the tyre is wider and heavier. Let me tell you that i never had a single puncture on this tube i have on the Bullet. It's the same tube i got when i bought Moto C and now using it with Moto D. MRF dealer suggested that i don't need to change the tube. It's been almost two years without a puncture
You can go for a CBZ rear rim or old Pulsar rear rim.

The dia of 18 inch is nearly equal to that of 19 inch. But Moto C have round profile or square profile just like 3.50? Meteor got lovely thread but it may lead to higher rolling resistance. How about duro tire availability in chennai?

120/80 18 tyre for Bullet?
I'm thinking of an 18" rim for my rear tyre on my bullet. Does anyone know if the 120/80 18 tyre will fit the bullet without any modification to the swing arm?
Anyone done it to confirm for sure?
Thanks in advance.
