Largest Tire on FXST 21 x 2.15 Front Rim?

What is the largest tire that will fit on a stock FXST front rim? Have a buddy who is getting ready to replace his original and would like to put the tallest and widest tire he can on the front. He wants to close up some of the gap between the stock fender and the tire for a more custom look while putting more rubber on the road too.

Thanks,

V1

With a stock rim and stock fender, I would go with a 90/90-21 from Metzler. The 80/90-21 is the stock size. Any bigger then 90/90 and you get into clearance issues with the fender. Good luck...
