    Thinking of going with a 52 spoke rim with a 21" ww front tire. Love the looks but not sure how different the ride will be, anyone done this to their RK. Another thing is clearance, will my stock fender be ok. Thanks

    They look nice on a show bike but i'm thinking it will affect daily drivability. JMHO.

    As Jeff has said are you interested in showing bike or just bar hopping compared to long hauling????

    When I bought my '15 Road Glide the dealer had already done some "custom" add ons. One of them was a 21" front rim with Avon 120/70 cobra tire. I had an '05 RG with stock wheels and I really don't feel that there is any difference in the ride quality. The rear rim is also a matching custom item with a 200 Avon.
