Question New Fat Bob Wheels on a 48?

Researching possibility of installing the newer Fat Bob wheels on my '13 Forty-Eight...

Has anyone here in the forum tackle this??

Here are the photos of the wheels.

I don't think the 5" rear will fit the swing arm.

That is my main concern... 4.5" would not be an issue since that is what the 2013 dyna street bob rear wheel is and it works perfectly with a 180 tire in the back (180 tire thread)... but 5" I just do not know...

I'm not that familiar with the new rubbermounts but, it might work with a chain conversion.

What's the possibility of getting 2 fronts?

In the process I would like a wider rear tire, not by much 170-180... 3" rim is not recommended for a wider tire...

Not concerned on the weight difference either... I could always go with aftermarket wheels (RSD, PM, etc.) but I really like the looks of these and the lettering on the sides just look very cool imho...

I will try to measure as much as I can today and stop by the dealer... If that rear rim works I might finally have a solution for matching rear/front wheels and do away with inner tubes... plus I love how those wheels look... ever since I saw them on the Fat Bob...

They are pretty cool looking. Yeah, if you're going for wider, the two fronts won't really work then.
