never heard of anyone going wider on the front.
as to the rear, just be aware that unless you are a god of a rider, then there is nothing but poser value to the 200/55 tire. i seen people ride stupid fast on the plain ol' 190. 200/55 will weight more too.
bombaymotorsports is always a good bet for almost any part. very competitive prices and good service to boot.

200/50 is the stock size - do they even do 200/55? 190/55 is the best if you're thinking of actually turning the bike in the corners. Changing the front isin't recommended for nothing but the looks. 120/70 is the best size. Maybe on a race track 120/60 could work but the streets aren't smooth enough for it.

200/55 is made by Pirelli and Dunlop among others I would guess.
