Question Aftermarket 6" Wide Wheel Size

I'm looking at Carbon Fiber wheels but the ones I would like for the 959 are 6" wide as opposed to the 5.5" OEM's.
I'm concerned with altering the handling and traction control of the bike by using a bigger size rear tire than the 180/60 OEM to properly fit the new wider wheel.
For those of you who have replaced your 899 5.5" OEM with 6" forged or CF wheels, what size tire are you using?

Current rides:
2016 Ducati Panigale 959 (Arctic White)
2016 Ducati Monster 1200R (Thrilling Black)
