Most of the time it's the original factory Trailwing that gives the real trouble breaking the bead. Most replacement tires turn out to be less of a problem.

Not so much. I've had the best results between 0.020" and 0.030" and found that when I tried .040" my fuel economy took a hit.

Yes. I you are going to run a 110/90 you really should have a 2.15" rim.
