Default 150 tyre on a Fatboy wheel?

So...my fatboy wheels have 130 tyres fitted but rumour has it a 150 will fit the rear as well...is that true?

Fatboy wheels are the 1992 items if that helps...

The biggest you can fit under there without major modifications is a 140.

However you can make a 150 fit it's just gonna cost you $$$$$$$$$$!!!

One of the best quotes of the year. It should be part of someone's signature.

I'll rephrase:

Will a 150 tyre properly fit a 1992 fatboy rearwheel?

Not interested to know if it would fit a stock fender or allign with stock pulleys as nothing is stock on this bike...

Thanks guys!

Not a belt in sight here:

It's a 1977 FXE with a 124" TP, Arlen Ness fenders, Fatboy wheels, chaindrive, GSXR1300 six-pot brakes and so on and so forth...
