EDALBRIS modded a rear wheel to fit the front (not sure if he's using it yet though)
Here's one of the pics.....

On the rear wheel, he uses 15 inch car tires. I'd think the same for the front.
But I would also think there may be some mods needed to the forks as well.

Keep me posted......

This is one I'd be interested in seeing and trying. I'd like to know how it effects the ride too.

When you get it done please post pics!

Car tires... isnt that bad for cornering?

He's got a pretty good sized sidecar on his Vulcan, So I don't think it effects his ride too much.
