Default Will a 200 fit 2012 RGC?

I'm looking for a 17" solid rear wheel, so I figured why not the fat boy. The 2013 comes in 17" but the tire is a 200. So my question is will a 200 fit my 2012 RGC? Supposedly its only 3/8" wider or so which means 3/16 on each side. Anyone riding a 200 rear on a RGC? What the rim size 6.5?

Thanks
Ron

I know a 200 will fit, but I don't know about the Fat Boy wheel. Let us know how that works out, I've been thinking about a solid wheel also, been looking at Yaffe.

I may go Yaffe too, the fatboy 17" wheel has those little holes..... The Hogpro looks good but its expensive. Got a call into Yaffe.

Thanks for the info.

I put a 200 on an agitator rear 17". No fit issues, but the stability at high speeds definately decreased ~ not sure why. Eastern Performance will no longer install a 200 on a stock rear setup ~ FYI

I'm throwing an agitator on the front but they only had a 18" for the back and I don't want to go taller. So I decided to go with a Smoothie. What year is that 17"?

Thanks
Ron

No cush drive on '12 Fatboy per HD parts under so assume '13 doesn't either...

Which means that wheel will not work on a bagger since the Harley wheels are cast and the hub is not replaceable.
