Default glide front wheel

i have a 05 custom. i would like to put a 16" on the front . will a 04 electra glide front fit if i change the bearings ? the hub with is what iam thinking about. i want to use a 110 90 16 tire. i mite be able to get the front and rear for less then a 100 with tires [ tires aren't much good ] and rotors. hope to hear from some of you out there on what you think good or bad. going for the bagsters look.
thanks ahead of time
p.s. look out for my spelling.

I don't know what else you would have to change, but I gotta believe that an e'glide front wheel is WAY wider than any sporty front end will allow. Isn't it?

I know the FL front end on my Heritage is quite a bit wider than my '06 Sporty and I doubt that tire would fit.

It would look awesome, but I think you will need a different front end (triple trees at least).

stock rim is 2 1/2" and i think the glide should be 3" with a 110 tire it should fit. i guy on here put a 130 on and had to take 1/16" off the legs. the main thing is the hub. he use a sportster hub lace to a glide wheel.iam just trying to take the esey way outbut i may haft to go the long way.
