I dislike the lo-pro big wheel look so much I replaced the 19" stocker on my '15 Road Glide with a 17" from a Road King. It rides much better with a little more sidewall and to me LOOKS way better. It is the same tire as the CVO RG.
I did the same thing with my TRX. Took the TRX wheel off and replaced it with the smaller wheel off the police bikes. Same wheel, just smaller.

It made a world off difference. It rides better and turns with less effort.

Not my style but I've seen some that looked great and were part of builds that were extremely well-done. Whatever the style, I enjoy seeing the top-quality work and creativity some folks put into their machines.

Any body else think the going trend with these huge front wheels guys are putting on baggers is super ugly???
IMHO they look ridiculous I don't know if there's a technical benefit at all from what I've seen the low speed handling is seriously compromised the riders seem to be struggling to keep in a straight line at lower speeds & manoeuvring into parking slots a difficult unbalanced operation.

It's been 4 yrs. I think it's been put to rest.

I dont care for the look or driveabilkty,,, other than the obvious issues with sta ility and load carrying ability. I realize this mod is more show than go..

I wonder,, (based on where I live there are potholes and other obstacles everywhere,,, curves,, up and down hills etc,,, I believe the narrow sidewalk will result in many wheels being damaged beyond use,, as the sidewall absorbs a good deal of the inpact.. leading to costing a considerable replacement expenditure.
