    Can I run a 180mm back tire on a 2002 fxdwg. I've seen it on a couple of different wide glides and it really looks great. Just need a little help with this

    You would have to change your swing arm,belt pulley and possibly a smaller belt.
    All things are possible if you spend the $$$

    O.E rear tire sits on a wheel width of 4.25" 2002-2005. 2006-2016 O.E. rear tire sits on a 5.5". As you need to gain 1.25" gain in wheel width alone not including the wider 180 a lot of changes need to happen. Do not try to jam a 180 on the O.E. wheel....... Most kits come in around $1,400. and up.
