Is this a possibility?

Thanks!

Of course you can put the 5.5 rear on the NTX!

Hell! The NTX wears the narrower rear wheel because everyone who wanted to take thier bike off pavement asked for it. Demanded it! Guzzi answered the call and equipped the bike with the 150 section rear tire because so many tires are available in that size!

Yes, there are people out there who have both and switch back and forth.
