Default 21in wheel issue heritage softail

Hello everyone, just picked up a used 40 spoke 21in wheel to put on my 02 heritage. I bolted it up tonight and had an issue. If I use the stock spacers on their respective sides the rim is not center in the fender. If I switch the spacers it is center in the fender but the caliper and rotor do not line up.... I was wondering if maybe the rim can be dished a little to one side to make it work. Any help would be great

Can I assume the wheel you're trying to use is from a "Touring" Model (has provisions for Dual Discs)?...

If so, that's why it's "Off" and it's "Off" the Wrong Way...where when the wheel is centered, Material would have to be removed somewhere to allow for proper rotor-to-caliper alignment?

I think you move it over the little that it needs (Offset it more)...OR disassemble the wheel and have the Rotor Mounting surface milled the needed amount
