found a wheel and tire on ebay but its a 19in, i have a 21 on the bike now.
its a spoke rim with a 100/90-19-57h venom tire, what would be the pros & cons of goin with the 19 tire& rim (handleing,ride ,lower,etc etc

oh i dont know if it makes a differance but i have a1200c

Hi.

I have a 2003 custom that I changed over to a 19, wile it really don't lower that you would notice, the handling is vastly improved.
The contact patch is almost twice the size in the 100/90/19 VS. the 80/90/21.
Better braking, and handling. and more sidewall means a smoother ride.

Now, on a Personal note, i see you live in Meridian, do you work for Peavey?

A Fender? No, I play a Peavey Wolfgang and a Odyssey through a Ultra 60......oh, wait, wrong Fender.

A picture is worth a thousand words........
