zx6r wheels on a zx10r ?

I just got in a set of like new 2006 zx6r se wheels and i was thinking of putting them on my 06 zx10r. Has anybody tried this yet and would it help the handling in the curves. I know i put gsxr 750 wheels on my gsxr 1000 and it helped a bunch. I was just wondering if anyone had tried this on a 10 and if so what they thought of it. Tire spin out of the corners is my major worry with a smaller tire. Please coment and tell me your thoughts on this.
thanks stetson

The front will be fine but the rear is .5 inches smaller. A 180 will fit on the 6R rim but I didn't like the feel of a 180 on my 06 10R. Don't even bother putting a 190 on a 5.5 inch rim it'll be like a gumball and just "fall" right over when you get over on the edge.
