What's needed to put a 21" x 3.50" Wheel on?

Most of our customers are very surprised to hear that the 21" x 3.5" size front wheel will fit on the the stock Street Glide. All you need is a 21" x 3.5" wheel and a 120/70-21 Metzeler or Avon tire and vaola!

In some case we have heard of customers having to remove the fender and drill the fender mounting holes a drill size larger and put the fender back on. This allows the fender to be pulled up a little bit in the back of it to make sure it does not rub the tire. This is not needed all of the time but you should deffinitely check the clearances of your stock fender once you install the wheel and tire on the bike.

2014-Present Models: If you would like to run a 21" wheel... you will need fender risers to raise the fender a 1/2 inch... We can provide these and in some cases, we give them away for free.

2013-Back CVO Models: May Require Fender Adapters.

 

What's needed to put a 23" x 3.75" Wheel on?

A 23" x 3.75" front wheel will fit on the front of Baggers, but the Triple Trees will need to be changed for the bike to be safe. A replacement fender is recomended because the circumfrence of the 23" wheel doesnt look quite right with the stock fender diameter. We carry all of these parts and would be happy to help.

FAQ

Yes, in some cases it has been true. In the early days of putting 21" wheels on Baggers, the Avon Venom tire was used a lot and they were expanding at high speeds and burning the fender paint. That is because it was a softer compound tire and easily expanded out more so than normal. This problem has been fixed with the release of the Avon Cobra Chrome tire and it is also fine to use a Metzeler Me-888. As long as the fender clearances are checked, this should NEVER be a problem.

Well, you tell us... About 95% of our wheel sales for Street Glides are 21" wheels... They ride well, look amazing, and can even help the resale value of your bike.

Yes. The 21" wheel will raise the bike about 1.5" in the front which makes the back raise a bit too. We do NOT recomend the 21" wheels for guys that are struggling to reach the ground on the stock size wheels. The best wheel for you would be the 18 x 3.5 size. The rim is larger than the stock 16" but the tire is a lower profile, causing the outer diameter of the 18" wheel to be the same as the stock 16" size. This will get you a larger wheel without raising the bike up any.

It does ride different but to us here at WanaRyd, it's not a huge change. We haven't ever had customers complain about a huge difference or return a wheel for this reason. Remember that Harley puts 21" wheels on a lot of their bikes so this isn't anything new or different than what many are used to. Chances are that you won't mind or notice the slight difference at all!
