The stock wheel is really too narrow for a 120, although it can be mounted.

    *Rick, I had a 120 front tire develop a 'bulge' which led me to
    use a 110 instead. Haven't had any probs with those. Your 'Rolls
    Royce' rims might accommodate a 120 where my stock 18" front
    wouldn't. Also, it might have just been a defective carcass on
    that particular tire. Just FYI.*
