Its a matter of tyre geometry (and lack of tyres than can handle power) rather than width.

Perfect street rim size for our bikes is 5"
Having said that, the stock scorpion on the stock 4.25 rim is just huge, larger than the 150 indicated. It is as wide (if not wider) than an 150/70 anakee2 on a 5" rim.
