120/70-19 looks to be the size as the diameter is very close, on a bigger rim, and still look like a fat tire.
But I have to ask myself... should I go for it?
HD doesn't make a 19" rim that'll work, unless it's from a spoked wheel, and you have the HOOP laced to a wide glide hub.
THAT can be done, and Buchanan's out of California does that very well.
Buchanan's Spoke & Rim, Inc
They can make you anything you want/need. Blackdog15 had a killer wide rimmed 21" rim done there.
HD doesn't make a cast 19" rim that'll fit, as the only 19 cast wheel they made was for Dyna/XL models, with too narrow of a hub. Your rotors would be set in too far and I don't recommend using spacers for a bike that heavy. (Touring)
