5.10 inch IRC Volcanduro on stock rear rim?

I'm thinking of trying a 5.10 inch IRC Volcanduro on my F800GS for the upcoming SandBlast rally.

Any experience in the group using a 5.10 inch tire on the stock rear rim?

That's only a 130.

I run a 140 at times and I wouldn't dream of going any narrower than that. Take a look at the D606, it's pretty damn durable, I still chunk it, but not as bad as you'd think with the torque the twin puts out.

Appreciate the insight. Many thanks.
