I have an 04 FXST and a stock Fat Boy rear wheel. Can this rim take a 160-80-16 tire? And will this size work on my bike without any changes?

It came stock with a 150mm rear. A total of 10mm more is 5mm per side. Some guys have fit wider tires on their bike, but also had to turn the strut bolts the other way, as to gain clearence and not scrape the tire.

Things to look for:

1.) Fender strut clearence
2.) Belt clearence
3.) Quick release mounts usually stick out farther.

Depending on how much room your currently have and what size is there now, it may fit.
Brand of tire varies in width as well....
