16" vs 18" Motorcycle Rims

I've decided to go with the 18 x 1.85 rather then the 16 x 1.60 just for more speed around town, and get up and go compared to 26" bicycle.

Figuring use the wire to lace through the nipple holes, and measure ERD for spoke calculation. Spokes were 10G so I am on the hunt. Can't do Holmes because of the shipping cost. But I may just go 12G with washers, hydraulic tubing flare tool.

The Shinko SR241 is a nice tread, but I am looking for something not as tall if that is at all possible.
