Hard to say, every tire is different. Look up the circumference of your current tire and compare to the new one, do some math and figure it out

Yes, every tire is different.

190/55 is best on a 6" rim, 180/55 is best on a 5.5".

Clearance where? For the chain, or the swingarm?

Do tires still grow at high speed? I don't think they do like they did 15 years ago but you may want at least a pinkie width of clearance between the front of the tire and the swingarm.
