Default Bigger Rear Wheel On A High Ball?

Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but if a High Ball is basically a Vegas underneath what is stopping you from unbolting the rear swing arm and putting the 180 tyre and the 5.5 rim on the back? If it's the same bike shouldn't that be pretty straight forward?

yes, but why change the swingarm? just use the spacers that come with the rim. pretty sure anyway.

I presumed it must have been smaller for the smaller wheel. Is it exactly the same as the Vegas and just has a 1" spacer either side?

Default bigger wheel no big deal

I have an 18x5.5 60 spoke from ridewright on my highball with a 200x55 tire. Of course I don't have the rear fender and i chopped the frame off at the seat. nonetheless it works.

I run a 170 series Shinko 777 tire on the rear of my Highball. Stock rim, no modifications to anything. Fits fine and rides great.
