I just measured a 16" x 2" Big Apple and it's 1.73" wide, on an Alex X-101 rim. Height above the rim looks like about 1.75". Measure the actual tires on your bike and the clearance you have now to determine if the Apples will fit.
As BAs seem to roll best at less than full pressure, which isn't all that high anyway, I wouldn't hesitate to run them on a narrower rim.
My theory on tires is simple - If a Big Apple will fit, use it. Everything else is "Plan B".
