I've been looking & haven't seen any high balls with a really wide rear tire yet. I think it might look bad ass with a 250 like the JP or hammer. So what are your thoughts? What JP/hammer parts would fit to allow for this conversion?
Also, any idea how wide I could go without changing the stock swingarm & fender?
Just curious
Thanks

A HB is the same as a Vegas or KP. There are plenty of threads on doing this conversion. Using the search feature will give you your answer.

200 is as wide as you want to go.
It's pretty well established now that 180 is the magic number for the rear tire on a cruiser and probably on the superbikes.

You can go wider but to keep handling decent; I'd do as Diamond said and don't go any wider than 200. 200 is pretty dang wide on a Vegas class bike.

No need to fight it for the sake of looks. IMHO.

Going to a 200mm tire will require a wider rim. 200mm tires are designed for a 6" rim. If you squeeze it on the stock rim it won't be 200mm wide and will wear unevenly. Fat tires are so 5 years ago.
