Tire fitment

Will a 160/60/17 tire fit on the rear of a stock 2012 Super Glide Custom?

I seem to limited to choices.

Thanks in advance.

I would measure from the inside of the right swingarm across to the inside edge of the belt. If it's 160mm the tire won't fit. Also measure the inside of the fender.

Yes. A 180 will fit with minor wire and hardware changes. Agreed: If you replace the tire with HD's size, the choices are few.

Thanks,

Do you know of any other tire sizes that would fit:

Factory is: Rear 160/70/17
front 100/90/19

I have plenty of wear left, but just got curious as what all would fit.

Thanks again.

I know about relocating the wiring, what hardware changes are included in this?

HD sells a kit (Inclusion g a 180 tire) which seems to include new fender hardware to avoid tire/hardware contact issues. I read where guys said the tire fit fine with stock hardware but tire brand may matter.

The only difference between the stock tire and the tire the OP listed is the aspect ratio. The 60 versus the stock 70. The 70 would be the taller of the two tires, measured from the ground to the top of the tire. BUT sometimes the aspect ratio affects the overall sidewall width too.
I used to check the Dennis Kirk catalogs when I needed specific info on tires, they had really good tire charts and gave inflated tire dimensions. I haven't looked into Kirk in a long time so don't know if they still have that feature.
