Want to change wheels but lost!!!

I have a 2006 VTX 1800S with spoke 17 wheel in the front. I want to change to mag or cast wheels without cutting my fender in the front. I am willing to change my tire size. Can I go with a 19 with a lower profile tire? Has anyone done this type of swap before?

It’s my understanding Any cast 1800 wheels will work...just be advise the narrow C front appearance wise might not be to your liking up under that big fender....some like it myself included...good luck

They first must be made to fit a Honda VTX 1800. 1300 wheels will not work, Harley wheels will not work

Is the "C" front wheel narrower than the "S"? I know the "F" has a narrower front wheel, but was lead to believe the C and S were the same width (3.25")?

The S, R, and T are the same bikes. C and F are different that them. S is the spoke version of the R/T (Big fenders).

Yes, I realise the bikes themselves are different. That's not what I was saying. To my knowledge, their wheel "widths" (with the exception of the F) are the same. And therefore, shouldn't look any narrow in the R/S/T fender, as TennX stated above.

The C/F front wheels are narrower than the R/S/T. The wheels fit the fender, so the R/S/T are one size, and the C/F are different (I don't know if the C and F are the same, but they are different widths than the R/S/T).
