Default Fatboy wheels on a Dyna Wide Glide?

Found a set of Fatboy wheels on Craigs for $150 no tires. What size tires would I need? are the rims 16x3 front and rear? I have a 16x3 rear now spoked. With a 150 Dunlop E3 ( I think its a 150 no markings that I can find). No more info on them. Was thinking that might look pretty sweet on my '95 WG. Give it a fat and low look almost Fat Bob like. Anyone do this to their older style WG? I have no issues with the skinny front 21" but I always hear how much better a fat front rides and drives so just might have to bolt them on over the winter.

Both wheels use the same size tire in those years a 130-16 x 3 , the 150 came out in 2001 on the FXDX and 2002 all other dynas.

Sounds good so those fatboy wheels should be a 16x3 front and back and use a 130 for both too? Any issues up front? Or will it bolt right up?

If the rims are 99 or older they should bolt up and yes they would use the 130 tire front and rear, check the bearings to make sure they are the right size 3/4 inch i believe

non mechanic type here... however my Dyna has custom. My tires are fatter. WideGlide front end with dual disc's.
Problems... front brake drag resulted in grinding down a bit, rear belt just clears, drags when backing her up. So far nothing too serious, just a note.

The fat front tire for handling is overrated, if you want the look that is fine if you like that look, but don't expect a huge difference in handling just because of tire width.
I went from a 90x21 to a 110x19, then back to a 90x21. A very slight difference in handling, the biggest difference was going from the Dunlop to Metzeler ME880 up front.

I had fatboy wheels on my 05 fxdwgi. Still have the rear on it, but didnt like the front. I had to measure and order spacers to center the front wheel in the forks. I ended up putting the 21" stocker back on, then a custom 21x2.15.
