Default 19 inch front wheel?

im getting ready to put my 7 degree trees on. i had a 21 inch wheel on my 05 but i always thought it was a little tall. has anyone ever seen a 19inch on the front of a warrior? i think an 18/19 combo would look good.

keep the 21 with the 7 degree trees and see how you like it before making any other changes. The 7 degree trees are going to lower the front of your bike and the 21 inch rim will help keep your frame parallel to the ground. I think you will like 21 with the 7 degree trees as the 7 degree trees usually have extended forks as well

I had a 21 on my 05 with the 7 degree trees and it did handle fine. I just thought it was a little big for the warrior. I thought maybe a 19 inch would look better.

well your 21 is probably a harely rim so if you go 19 you will probably go to a harley rim which will use the same spacers disc etc as the 21 so if you like it then you can keep it and sell the 21 and if you don't like it then you can keep the 21 and sell the 19. The sportster is the perfect bike for this as they came with both 19 and 21 inch rims so if your bike is set up for a harley 21 you should easily be able to change it to a 19

I started to ask you about your wheels when I saw a pic of your bike. any trouble adapting them to the warrior? I think the size of those are great.
