After trying a range of bikes with tires from 130 to 300 , and feel that 200 is the most practical and wide enough for the ‘looks’. The bikes are perfectly centered and balanced with LSD.
If I were going to go with the fat rear, my front would be comparably fat as well.

I think most stock Harleys can and do run 3.5-5.5” rims in the rear ranging tires from 130- to 180 without much modifications.
