Wheel's rims

Silly Question here , the search stalls on me
is there a list of wheels front and back of other bikes that are the same and a simple swap ,
im thinking of a extra set with more aggressive tires for off road
that i can swap out ,

if any one knows please post a list or a link ,

thanks

You are going to be limited by the allowable room inside the swing arm ..... 130/80/17 is as you know stock but ive gone up to 140/80/17 and im looking at 15mm clearance either side to the swing arm ....

I was thinking same size tire just more rubber ,
I was thinking taking the whole wheel off and changing them out
front and back , not just changing tires

sorry if i confused you ,
