Mine handles good on my Road King. Make sure you get a wheel that's at least 3" (mine's 3.25") so you can mount a tire with a decent width to it to ensure the good handling.

I used a PM wheel and Metzeler tire.

HogPro Lemans 21" wheel is installed up front with a Metzeler tire. The wheel initially threw my bike's geometry off, so I lower the front suspension by 1" to compensate for the added height. That was two years ago and all is good!

A wheel is a personal choice. 21's look great on baggers but a 3.5" wide is going to support the load better than a 3" wheel. Just my .02
