Any of you folks w/ Softails (FL's) either Heritages or Deluxes have any fitment issues when using the Fat 21" set-up (21" x3.5" rim and bigger 21" tire)? I was told that the stock fender WON'T work with this wheel. Any truth to that? My buddy is getting these rims soon for his 05 deluxe. Let me know....

Your problem is with the tire diameter. A 16" wheel/tire combo is about 25" tall. A 21" combo, is about 27" tall. So, it will take up 1" more fender space, which you do not have. If you can adapt the fender up higher, it will be fine.
