    I have a 2008 Fatboy and just put an Avon tire on the rear. I would like to put a Avon on the front as well. Avon does not make a 140/75-R17.
    Just wondering if going to a 150/80VR-17 would be a problem.

    Just check clearance. Your nominal tire width will be 10mm wider (5mm per side), and your diameter about 15mm taller (only about 7.5mm at the axle).

    As long as you have the clearance, you probably won't notice any difference.
