    Most Harley wheel hubs are the same thickness/width. The big difference in interchangeability is axle diameters have changed thru the years, and models.
    A good way to see what will fit your bike is to go to a site like J&P cycle, and select a wheel, then look at the "fitment" chart. Rim width is very important, you can't change that much as it changes the overall width of a tire a little. It can get confusing.

    I have a 93 sportster so it has the same size wheels and axles as your bike and the rear wheel from my dyna or softail would fit as they are the same size wheel and axle
    front would be different as my 2 big bikes have wide glide front ends and as such will have a wider wheel on the front than the sportster
