Some have reported a wobble with that tire.
If it will fit you can run this tire

I;m running this tyre have over 12,000 miles on it no problems whatsoever. Have been from the West Coast to the East Coast ,have done the Alaska trip Top of the world hwy to Chicken ,Fairbanks and back pulling a camping trailer. Ithink my front BTX will give out before the Austone .
Take care,
Be safe

Lady D, if you're not really a fast rider, even the wobbler can work out for you if you wanted the Aussie; I have one that I computer balanced then put RideOn in it that got
rid of the wobble up to about 90. The Vredestein isn't available anymore in the 175, but is in the 185. I sort of plan to be the guinea pig again and may buy the Nokkian
Cargo tire in a 185 for my softail and test it. It has some amazing tech built in others don't have:

TireByWeb has it for about $158

Its a tire that some will get a wobble with, not all but some. Why do some wobble and others don't, we don't know why. I would buy another tire that did not have the chance of a high speed wobble.

As a general comment after staying with the darkside forums, I'm gonna say that the Aussie isn't the only one, but a common denominator seems to be
the taller tires, I.E. the higher aspect ratios. Lower the chance of wobble if the tall tire is a RF or has multiple plies in the sidewall?

Highbinder was thinking about it for his Valks ...

Get these and split the cost, 8 ply tires for $149+ shipping is under $100 each. These would work on a Valkyrie
http://mcdarksiders.forumotion.com/t6735-185-75-16-8-ply-tires
These tires are a little taller than the 205/65-16 tires that some run on the Valk, 26.5" tall<26.9" tall
