Can you put a wider front tire on the softail standard. I would like to see a picture if anyne has done it. Just wondered what it would look like if it can be done.

Here's my train before mjaor mods with a 16" spoked front wheel.



They kept the same hub from the original and laced a new rim on. Obviously changed the fender too...

How did that effect your bike's rake/handling? Was your overall outside diameter the same?Thanks.

wider front tire

I want to keep the same 21" wheel with a wider/bigger tire.
Yours does look good though.

You'll probably have to go to a wider wheel. I'd suggest the 120mm tire on a 21" wheel if you're wanting to stay with the 21. I've got an 18" x 3.5" wheel on order that will have a 140mm tire on it for my train. The radius will be approx .75" smaller. Hoping the wheel is in this week as it has already been over 8 WEEKS! Damn RC Components!
