Default Sportster Tracker Wheel and Tire Questions

I have a 2000 XL1200C that I am making into a street tracker. It currently has a spoked 21" wheel on the front. I was going to purchase the Tracker 40 Spoke 19x2.5" rear wheel from TC Bros. I was going to keep the original 21" wheel for the front. I am looking for recommendations/suggestions on tires that I could put on these wheels.

Rear tire choices are extremely limited in 19" but the Avon Roadrider comes in sizes to fit both your rims...and they are good tires, very popular in the vintage bike world.

For a good flat track look, both wheels need to be 19", with alloy rims.
I fit Duro 4.00-19 HF308 tires to my XLH1200 tracker - they are direct copies of the old Pirelli MT53 that flat trackers like the XR750 used to use... https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid...71523479746458

on my XR I used NOS XR1000 19" front wheels and Dunlop K180's....


and on my street XL I used 18" XR1200X front wheels... and Dunlop TrailMAX...

While I agree with @84rzv500r comment about 19" tires, the Dunlop K180 tire comes in a 21" front size.
