2000-06 harley fatboy wheels

2000-2006 Fat Boy Wheels - The Fat Boy in these years came with 16" x 3.0" wheels on the front and rear. The stock size replacement wheel that we carry in every wheel style on our website is the 16 x 3.5" size. If you purchase this size wheel, you can use your stock tires and will not have to change them. 

On these year Fat Boys, you can put a 16 x 3.5, 17 x 3.5, 18 x 3.5, or 19 x 3.0, front wheel without changing anything on the bike at all. As far as the rear wheel, on 2000-2002 models we recommend the 18 x 3.5 wheel with the 150/70-18 Metzeler or Avon Tire with our special pulley spacer. On the 2003-2006 models we recommend the 18 x 4.25 wheel with the 150 or 160/70-18 Metzeler or Avon Tire. This wheel is a GREAT fit for the Fat Boy, looks great, rides great, and doesn't effect the ride height of the bike at all. 

 

2007-13 harley fatboy wheels

2007-2013 Fat Boy Wheels - The Fat Boy in 2007-2009 comes with a 17" x 3.0" front wheel. The Fat Boy in 2010 comes with a 18" x 3.0" front wheel. 2007-2010 years all came with a 17" x 6.0" rear wheel. The stock size replacment wheels that we carry in every wheel style on our website is the 17" x 3.5" or 18" x 3.5" size front and the 17" x 6.25" rear. If you purchase these size wheels, you can use your stock tires and will not have to change them. 

On these year Fat Boys, you can put a 16 x 3.5, 17 x 3.5, 18 x 3.5,  or 19 x 3.0 front wheel without changing anything on the bike at all. As far as the rear wheel, you can do either a 17 x 6.25 rear wheel with a 200 tire or a 18 x 5.5 rear wheel with a 180/55-18 or 200/50-17 tire. We recommend the 17 x 6.25 because the 200 tire is a better fit for this rim and it looks a LOT better, rides better, and sits at a better ride height.

What's needed to put a 21" wheel on?
You can install a 21 x 3.5 wheel on a Fat Boy but it will require a new fender for it. We carry a wide variety of fenders so call us at 888-926-2793 for help. Other than that, there is nothing you would have to change. The hub for our wheels would be perfectly setup for it.
